Summary
The evolving security framework in the Persian Gulf is the subject of this new report by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The report identifies challenges and opportunities associated with promoting U.S. interests and a stable security environment in the Gulf region. Home to more than half of the world's oil reserves and over a third of its natural gas, the stability of the Gulf is critical to the global economy. A confluence of events in the Middle East, the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, the Arab Revolutions, and the ongoing concerns over Iran's nuclear program, have raised questions about the Gulf region and U.S. relations with the six states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The report identifies seven principal challenges to the region and offers the following policy recommendations: The United States should leverage its strategic position to be a steady force for moderation, stability, and non-sectarianism, through patient and persistent engagement in support of human rights. The United States should seek to remain a central part of the Gulf security framework. The United States should work with GCC states to promote economic reform and diversification, as well as increased trade relations. The United States should preserve the model of 'lily pad' bases throughout the Gulf, which permits the rapid escalation of military force in case of emergency. The U.S. government should continue to cultivate the capabilities of GCC partners in select defensive missions, such as missile defense, combat air patrol, and maritime security, while building capacity through deployments in other theaters such as Libya and Afghanistan. The United States should continue to supply Gulf partners with security assistance that supports a comprehensive strategy for regional arms sales to ensure a stable security architecture. The United States should promote the gradual political reintegration of Iraq into the Arab fold
