THE G.C.C. STATES AND POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVES

Auther : By: Dr. Sadaka Yehia Fadil

 

            Many political observers believe that the Strait of Hormuz is now one of the most important international water passes, if not the most vital one.  Following each tension in the Arabian Gulf region, this strait becomes the focus of attention of the whole world.

           About two-thirds of the world’s ocean-shipped oil passes through this strait daily.  The Gulf oil, shipped daily through Hormuz amounts to more than one-third of the total oil consumption of the non-Communist world. Furthermore, it is the only water-pass-way for the international trade of most of the Gulf States.

           Serious threats to close the Strait of Hormuz have been so vocal at present.  Its closure will definitely harm many Gulf nations and the West as well.  This article sheds some light on this water-pass.  Then in three parts it summarizes:

 1.     Its strategic importance for the Gulf States, the West and the world.

2.     Possibilities of its closure and their results.

3.     What the GCC State may do, in case of certain closure, i.e. possible alternatives.
