On December 4, IENE released the latest issue (No 10) of its Geopolitics Bulletin, based on contributions by members of the Institute’s Geopolitics Committee.

A substantial part of the Bulletin focuses on the latest developments in the Middle East and discuss their global impact. This part examines the implications of the recent so-called corruption crackdown in Saudi Arabia, the attempt for a rapprochement between Riyadh and Moscow, the ongoing conflict in Yemen, which has evolved into a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran etc. The Bulletin also analyzes the current stage of Syria’s long-lasting civil war and its implications on the broader Middle East area. The Bulletin also examines the recent Kurdish referendum (September 25) and its aftermath.

On the one hand, the growing tension between Iran and the US and, on the other hand, the ongoing formation of an axis comprising Tehran, Moscow and Ankara, on the Syrian issue, help shape the new geopolitical environment, affecting both the regional and the international setting. This issue of IENE’s Geopolitics Bulletin underlines the effect of this setting on energy supply and energy security.

The Bulletin also analyzes the basic co-ordinates of US President Donald Trump’s policy towards Iran as well as what appears to be a U-turn in his stance towards China, especially after his recent visit to Beijing.

The latest news from the global gas market, with special reference to the ongoing debate within EU institutions concerning the Nord Stream 2 project, are also examined in the current issue.

Finally, the politically sensitive issues which have recently risen almost simultaneously in Europe (Catalonia referendum, post-election government vacuum in Germany, uncertainty concerning the outcome of the Brexit talks etc.) have triggered considerable concerns over the stability and the very future of the European Project.
