Riyadh-Washington Relations: From Classic Dependence to Asymmetrical Dependence
Monday, February 8, 2016

Hossein Kebriaeezadeh
The time will not go back for Riyadh and Washington. Regional conditions have greatly changed compared to a few decades before. Russians are now more determined than before about their presence in the Middle East, Iran is rejoining the international community, and the regional order in the Middle East is amazingly inclining toward the situation that existed in the Middle Ages. These conditions, along with countless number of other factors, will cause these two actors not to be able to remain committed to the unwritten “oil for security” agreement anymore.

At any rate and in the real world, we, as a major regional power, and the United States, as a big global power, which is ectopically present in our region and in our periphery, including in the Persian Gulf will inevitably come face to face in certain cases. For example, such incidents as trespassing of two US Marines’ boats on Iran’s coastal waters and the likes of that can always take place and we must be ready and make necessary plans to prevent escalation of the situation and do not let such incidents get out of hand.

Saturday, February 6, 2016

Shireen T. Hunter
“Iran’s return to international community will undermine Saudi aspirations for regional supremacy, and even more its hopes that a U.S.-Iran military confrontation would weaken Iran to a point that it would not be a contender for regional power,” said Prof. Shireen T.
