The development of nations is still inextricably linked to fossil fuel-based industries. At the same time, the importance of green energy is on the increase. These two processes are paralleled.
The formation of a multipolar world is also reflected in the energy sector. Oil and gas exporters have become more independent from other countries.
Being under restrictions, Iran will rely on gas and electricity as energy sources which are more reliable than oil. The country can also re-export these two, because Iran practiced this before.
Tehran expects that there will be no aggravation of the conflict in the Middle East. The state sees itself as a guarantor of free and safe movement of ships in the Persian Gulf.
U.S.-China relations have ended up in their current state not because China is pursuing anti-American policy. Both sides have different vision of normalcy.
The imbalance is one of the main problems of cooperation between the U.S. and China. If the U.S. makes it easier for China to import its knowledge-intensive products — even non-high-tech ones — this imbalance could be restored.
Washington is politicizing economic ties with Beijing in order to curb China’s development. It also plans to "rewire" China’s neighboring countries, primarily Central Asian states.
