“Dubai crisis provides US, Abu Dhabi leverage against Iran”

“Dubai crisis provides US, Abu Dhabi leverage against Iran”
November 28-December 1, 2009
     Dubai is expected to face strong pressure to severely reduce ties with Iran as it seeks financial support from Abu Dhabi, a US ally. Western analysts believe Dubai, Iran’s largest re-export partner, provides Iran with a key route for circumventing international sanctions, but Dubai may be forced to sever those ties as conditions for obtaining bailouts from Abu Dhabi (Business Insider, Foreign Policy). Karim Sadjadpour believes that while Dubai-Iran ties will not be severed, Abu Dhabi’s increasing political clout will make it difficult for Iran to continue using Dubai to alleviate the effects of sanctions (CNBC).
