The British Conservative Party, Iran, and the Persian Gulf: A New Era?

The British Conservative Party still sees the Persian Gulf as important, for trade. Despite the fact that the Persian Gulf now, in the beginning of the twenty first century, is not as significant, and vital as it used to be for Britain during the nineteenth, and up until the middle of the twentieth centuries. Then, it was for the British Empire in India, and later, Oil. Now India gone, and the Persian Gulf oil is not as crucial as before for the United Kingdom’s economy. Reservoirs of Oil in the contemporary period is not necessarily confined to the Middle East, and in particular to the Persian Gulf. They are scattered all over the globe, and its technological production is evident. Nonetheless, the British Conservative Party tries to maintain Britain’s relationship with the Persian Gulf Arab, states, through, the United Kingdom’s traditional connections with their ruling families, such as Bahrain.8 this can no doubt facilitate, as a means, to maintain British interests in this hemisphere during troublesome periods. That is to say British intention of establishing a naval base in Bahrain at a cost of ₤ 15m, to be operational by 2017. The deal was signed by the British Conservative Secretary of State for Foreign, and Commonwealth Affairs, Philip Hammond, and his Bahraini counterpart on 6th December, 2014. Consequently, however, Britain still could enjoy what, in retrospect, are delusions of grandeur in that she assumes that her skillful diplomatic networking, and her long established connections with the Persian Gulf, Arab states, enables her to exert influence in the Persian Gulf, and the Middle East as a whole. Britain has no reason to doubt her capacity to use military force in the Persian Gulf if it should come to that

Despite the United Kingdom’s co-operation with the United States in the Middle East, and the Persian Gulf for the Containment of threats to Western interests, and the particular to, British interest posed by various post-communist new phenomenon in the beginning of the twenty first century, be it the new comers to the area, such as the powers which were referred to earlier on, in the article, or terrorism, British interests in the eyes of the Conservative Party’s political elite are parallel to those of American interests, and policies, and not converged, which was mentioned in the article. The United Kingdom should seek her own provisions in the new era of instability in the Middle East, believe in the British Conservative political elite, in order to protect British interests. Specially so as the United States looks now more to the Pacific, and the Far East with the rising power of China, and other regional powers in that hemisphere. The United States is now more reluctant to get involved in Middle Eastern conflicts.
