Concerned by China’s recent embrace of Saudi Arabia, Iran

World News

According to The Jakarta Post, Iran, which is experiencing its lowest level of domestic legitimacy and global acceptance, also appears to have lost China.

Iran was shocked by Xi Jinping’s recent trip to Saudi Arabia. Tehran is now pondering whether China is altering its regional priorities, particularly in light of the waning American presence.

According to The Jakarta Post, this visit is regarded as a turning point in Beijing’s foreign policy toward the countries of the Persian Gulf.

Saudi Arabia has become one of Beijing’s most important strategic allies in the region, despite the fact that China still maintains close ties with Iran and both countries.

As Iran believes that China has adopted a neutral stance in Iran’s rivalry with Saudi Arabia in the Gulf region, Tehran is concerned about China’s recent embrace of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

In a joint statement with the Saudi Arabian government, the Chinese leader urged Iran to cooperate in the contentious nuclear case and refrain from meddling in the domestic affairs of its neighbours.

To make matters worse, according to The Jakarta Post, Xi signed another statement supporting the United Arab Emirates in its dispute with Iran over three islands along with the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Notably, a 25-year comprehensive strategic partnership agreement has been signed between Iran and China. As geopolitical tensions rise, China is also expected to discuss expanding economic cooperation, but for the most part, the plans are still nebulous, according to The Jakarta Post.

Since 2020, Saudi Arabia has been China’s top supplier of crude oil. For its energy needs, China is dependent on Saudi Arabia, and Beijing is working hard to establish a long-term relationship with Riyadh.

According to The Jakarta Post, Iran is requesting “compensation” for the joint statement that China and the GCC countries signed.

The interactions between China and Saudi Arabia and Iran are intricately entwined. In order to safeguard its trade interests in the region, China must carefully manage its relations with both nations and uphold neutrality.

The Jakarta Post reported that if China goes over its limit, the Islamic world will respond with violence.

The majority of Muslim nations, including Iran and Saudi Arabia, are aware of the plight of the Muslims in Xinjiang but have resisted joining the US campaign to militarise those Muslims by China.

The recent visit of a delegation of Muslim scholars and clerics from developing countries, who expressed support for China’s policies in the far-western region, can be used to measure the Arab world’s reciprocity with China on Xinjiang.

More than 30 Islamic representatives from 14 nations, including the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Serbia, South Sudan, and Indonesia, arrived in Xinjiang to meet with government representatives and travel to the cities of Urumqi, Turpan, Altay, and Kashgar.

According to The Jakarta Post, Al Nuaimi, chairman of the World Muslim Communities Council in the UAE, who was a member of the delegation, praised Chinese government efforts to combat terrorism and extremism in Xinjiang as the best way to safeguard China’s national interests.

Over the past few years, China has imprisoned more than a million Uyghurs against their will in a vast network of facilities it refers to as “reeducation camps.”
