  • The Persian Gulf Trade in Late Antiquity | CAIS©



Mesopotamia became the linchpin of ancient international trade. The fertile soil between the Tigris and the Euphrates produced a arge surplus of food; however, it did not support forests to produce the timber necessary to build permanent structures. The region also lacked the mineral resources to make metals. Accordingly, the early inhabitants of Mesopotamia were forced to go abroad and trade their food for other raw materials. They found copper at Magan, an ancient city that lay somewhere in the contemporary state of Oman and, via Magan, traded with people in the Indus Valley for lumber and other finished goods.

Trade between Mesopotamia and India was facilitated by the small size of the Persian Gulf. Water provided the easiest way to transport goods, and sailors crossed the gulf fairly early, moving out along the coasts of Persia and India until they reached the mouth of the Indus. Merchants and sailors became middlemen who used their position to profit from the movement of goods through the gulf. The people of Magan were both middlemen and suppliers because the city was a source of copper as well as a transit point for Indian trade.

One of the ways that rulers directed goods toward their own country was to control transit points on the trade routes. Oman was significant to rulers in Mesopotamia because it provided a source of raw materials as well as a transshipment point for goods from the East. Although a valuable prize, Oman's large navy gave it influence over other cities in the gulf. When Mesopotamia was strong, its rulers sought to take over Oman. When Oman was strong, its rulers pushed up through the gulf and into Mesopotamia. One of the basic conflicts in gulf history has been the struggle of indigenous peoples against outside powers who sought to control the gulf because of its strategic importance.

The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf ( Arabic : مجلس التعاون لدول الخليج ‎), originally (and still colloquially) known as the Gulf Cooperation Council ( GCC , مجلس التعاون الخليجي ), is a regional intergovernmental political and economic union consisting of all Arab states of the Persian Gulf , except for Iraq . Its member states are Bahrain , Kuwait , Oman , Qatar , Saudi Arabia , and the United Arab Emirates . [2] [3] The Charter of the Gulf Cooperation Council was signed on 25 May 1981, formally establishing the institution. [4]

All current member states are monarchies , including three constitutional monarchies (Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain), [5] [6] two absolute monarchies (Saudi Arabia and Oman), and one federal monarchy (the United Arab Emirates, which is composed of six member states, each of which is an absolute monarchy with its own emir ). There have been discussions regarding the future membership of Jordan , Morocco , and Yemen . [7] [8]

A 2011 proposal to transform the GCC into a "Gulf Union" with tighter economic, political and military coordination has been advanced by Saudi Arabia, a move meant to counterbalance the Iranian influence in the region. [9] [10] Objections have been raised against the proposal by other countries. [11] [12] In 2014, Bahrain prime minister Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa said that current events in the region highlighted the importance of the proposal. [13]
