France’s Policy towards the Emirates and Monarchies of the Gulf

For a long time, the Persian Gulf was a sphere of influence for the United Kingdom and the United States. At the beginning of the 1970s, France initiated and developed a policy of active presence in the Gulf. This policy was a real success. France’s presence takes many forms and is significant in the political, military, economic or cultural fields. However, this strategic region, very rich in hydrocarbon, is the site of a severe competition not only between Western States but also now with newcomers, in particular emerging countries such as China and India. France’s privileged position, notably in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi or Qatar, remains fragile and is increasingly being contested.
