Realignments in West Asia

- Gateway House and KAS India

The geopolitics of West Asia has seen a dramatic transformation in the recent times. The Gulf States led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have withdrawn a three-year blockade on Qatar. The new U.S. administration may once again recognize the Iran deal. The Abraham Accords have led Gulf states such as the UAE to recognize Israel. Entangled in the old and new West Asian order is the continuing strife in Syria and Yemen. India recognizes the importance of West Asia. Prime Minister Modi’s Link West policy has seen relations flourishing with the Arab world and Israel. Economically, India is dependent on West Asia for energy and remittances. India imports over 1.4 billion barrels of oil, two-thirds of it from West Asia. Affordable and reliable oil supplies are a precondition for India’s growth and economic well-being. Almost 8 million Indians live and work in the Gulf, and their remittances form an important part of India’s foreign exchange earnings. Any unrest in West Asia also threatens this vital economic engine. Therefore, to discuss the geopolitics, security, and energy dimensions of West Asia. the Gateway House, Mumbai & the India Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) organized a Virtual Webcast on "Realignments in West Asia" on 18th February, 2021.
