20 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

www.NEWSBASE.com| May 2015 A NewsBase Research Briefing   Iran is home to around 34 tcm of gas, but at present it lacks extra production capacity for export. FOR the past 30 years, Iran has lived in a more or less self-imposed geopolitical isolation. From Tehran, the view has been of a hostile US, its no-less hostile sidekick the UK, less-hostile Europeans usually aligned with the Anglo-Saxons, hostile Sunni Arabs across the water to the west, troublesome Sunni Pashtuns and Pakistan lurking in the east, Iraqi Sunnis dominating on its western border, and a chaotic semi-secular collection of ‘stans to the north. Less hostile Russians and...
