World's Geopolitics new Chapter

A new chapter happened. Diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran have returned to normal. The two countries in the Middle East region agreed to reopen their respective embassies.

This normalization has the effect of easing tensions and restoring peace in the region, as well as the world, so that geopolitical stability is maintained.

The new round indeed saves crucial moments. These moments may be short, but here’s an amazing thing that has happened; the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

However the world marks this amazing event, the certain only thing: all nations in the world need peace, therefore it is their responsibility to maintain world peace.

Indeed all this can be said, a new chapter of geopolitics. Geopolitics, which broadly refers to the relationship between politics and territory on a local or international scale, due to this new round, the nations of the world have “momentum” to choose peace.

This choice may at first be in terms of geostrategy, but there is something that is not able to be defined single-handedly, it is called “a must.”

In this new geopolitical round, Saudi Arabia and Iran chose “momentum” as a dignified bridge to celebrate peace.

And the two countries that have been in conflict for a long time are taking the path of “must” to have transcendental independence, as nations that can get along in harmony and always maintain world peace.

Construction of geopolitical thought

This condition, of course, is a new milestone in the prolonged conflict over relations between the two countries in the last seven years.

So that other countries in the region such as Qatar, UAE, Iraq, Oman, Lebanon and Bahrain expressed positive sentiment towards the decision of the two countries to continue diplomatic relations.
