Abstract

From the bulge of Africa to Indonesia via West Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, South East Asia, the Gulf has been of vital interests to the Western Powers, since time immemorial for multiple reasons. Situated at this junction of three continents-namely, Asia, Africa and Europe, the Gulf region provides linkages over land and across sea between Europe and the Indian subcontinent on the one side and Africa and India on the other side.It offers the shortest and cheapest trade and transit routes between the West and the East.It commands a vast reservoir of oil, about 60 per cent of the world's proven reserves of oil, which enormously contributes to the affluence of the Western World, especially the United States.
