The United States and the Soviet Union in the Mediterranean,

Pagination or Media Count:
It cannot be expected that Moscow will completely withdraw from the Mediterranean. Geopolitics is too powerful, especially when reinforced by growing military and economic power. The United States is not likely to withdraw back on itself either. In the long run only the conversion of North Africa and the Middle East into a buffer zone between the superpowers is likely to provide a possibility for solution of the regional conflicts and the development of a less dangerous and more durable Soviet-American coexistence in the region.
