Dr. Hadi Soleimanpour: Regional Cooperation, the key strategy for the Period of Transition

In an address in the 21st Persian Gulf International Conference, Dr. Hadi Soleimanpour the head of the Center for Education and Research, pointed out the need for updating regional systems in an era when the international system is in a fateful transition. Stating that regional cooperation is of key importance to making the destiny of the region, he said that such cooperation will contain some challenges like tribalism and the perils of balkanization of the Islamic countries (Sudan’s disintegration) which permeate the periods of transition. He emphasized the multidimensional interaction between the regional and trans-regional powers and stated that the nature and quality of the interaction of trans-regional powers like Chin, Russia and Europe with regional powers could directly affect the management of the crises and the hazards emanated from the period of transition in the international system. He mentioned the crisis in Syria as a critical trial for these powers. Pointing to Iran’s unique experience in facing and containing extremist groups, he stressed that this intellectual and empirical asset has enabled the Islamic Republic of Iran to correctly predicts the developments in Syria from the very onset and see how they will end. The head of the Center for International Research and Education emphasized that recent developments in the region and the international system has created a fateful and historical turning point for the region and he also stated that due to recent developments in the region namely the Islamic Awakening and Arab uprisings, energy revolution and the interdependency between the production and consumption markets in the east and west of Asia, the policy of strategic hegemony over the china sea and the pacifics and the conceptual shift in power has made the notion of power more sophisticated in a way that it is not merely dependent upon the military power but on a various set of elements such as economic, consensus building, production and distribution of information, ideological and creation of social networks, which ultimately have contributed to accentuating the role of regional actors.
