The European Council on Foreign Relations hosted a closed-door roundtable discussion on “Israel and the Middle East’s New Battlelines: What Implications for regional stability” in Brussels on June 18, 2019. Dr. Christian Koch, Senior Advisor to the Bussola Institute participated in the discussions by looking at the extent to which common animosity towards Iran is driving closer relations between Israel and Gulf states and how sustainable this ‘rapprochement’ ultimately is. The event focused on numerous issues including whether one is witnessing the emergence of a viable new regional order, how considerable the risks of escalation with Iran and its allies is, and what does Israel’s emerging regional vision mean for the possibility of enhanced cooperation with Europe.
