Dr Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, UAE Professor of Political Science, discusses why UAE momentum and influence is on the rise in the Middle East; how the Gulf states’ management of the COVID-19 pandemic compares with the West; why the region can be cautiously optimistic on Libya; why the UAE will not back down from either its normalization with Israel or its support for Palestinians; how the region will manage a new Iran nuclear deal, if it happens, and Iran’s new hardline president; the four tracks of Gulf reconciliation; the UAE’s role as peacemaker in the Horn of Africa; the US-China competition is in the Gulf; and more!
