Checking Iranian Aggression: Our Allies in the Persian Gulf Have a Vital Role to Play

In advance of President Trump's trip to the Middle East, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) is unveiling a new resource analyzing the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)'s relations with Iran. UANI's report examines the headlines and trendlines in the region, and offers Washington policy-oriented recommendations for enhancing U.S-GCC cooperation.

Iran's ambitions to dominate the Middle East directly imperil GCC security and stability. Relations between Washington and the GCC grew strained in recent years as a result of US. efforts to reach an accommodation with Iran over its illicit nuclear program. A new administration offers U.S. policymakers an opportunity to reposition America's relations with its historic Gulf allies. If calibrated correctly, renewed U.S.-GCC cooperation can serve to constrain Iran's hegemonic ambitions and become a catalyst for increased stability in the tumultuous Middle East.
