This zoom webinar is part of a series PoliTact has organized to examine the economic and security interconnections between South Asia and the Middle East. In November 2018, PoliTact collaborated with the Middle East Institute to study this relation in detail (link: https://youtu.be/Wq7cWEsaqcs).
In the COVID-19 geopolitical context, this zoom webinar will explore the ramifications of the likely China, Iran economic and security pact for the Gulf region and its ties with Pakistan and India. Another important query is how will the pact correlate with the Saudi-Iran tensions and US-Saudi ties. Moreover, the panelists will examine the impact of the deal for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and Afghan peace process.
