This book, an outcome of the second Asian Relations Conference organized by Indian Council of World Affairs and Association of Asia Scholars in November 2010, endeavors to examine the dynamics of India`s relations on the western flank that include the Gulf countries and also involve important components of shaping of Asian Relations in general and India`s diaspora and energy security in particular. At the deeper level, it is also an effort to ensure that this region is no longer considered as outside the dominant connotation of Asia Pacific which is often seen to subsume Asian relations. India has always stood for having an inclusive and comprehensive picture of Asian relations and this book is presented in that larger context. Accordingly, this volume seeks to highlight India`s increasing engagement viz-a-viz the Gulf countries that include Iran, Iraq and the GCC countries i.e. Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman.
