Persian Gulf 2013
India's Relations With the Region

First Edition
Edited by:


January 2014 | 328 pages | SAGE India
Persian Gulf 2013 looks at the growing relationship between India and the countries of the Persian Gulf region, which has assumed greater importance in the recent years and hence demands greater attention. 

The book covers India’s bilateral relations in 2012 with nine Persian Gulf countries, namely, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Yemen as well as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). 

The Gulf region accounts for about two-thirds of India’s oil imports and is home to about six million-strong Indian expatriate workforce. It is also India’s important sub-regional trading partner. Despite its importance, there is a lack of adequate understanding of the various facets of the relations between India and the Gulf region. This book serves precisely this function—to fill in the policy lacuna and attitude of New Delhi towards this region.
