Pagination or Media Count:
The paper attempts to develop some of the relevant considerations affecting Soviet policy in the Gulf. A first and major one is Soviet economic interest in Middle Eastern oil, an issue that generally neglects tradeoffs with natural gas. The second section examines the implications of a probable change in the USSRs oil trade position in the context of the evolving oil politics of the Middle East. It concludes with consideration of inter-state conflict in which Soviet policy will have to operate.
