Log-in for full text

This chapter details the broadening bilateral relations between Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Japan and the Republic of Korea. It assesses the interplay of energy dependence, East Asian contributions to, and benefits from, Saudi and UAE Vision strategies, and attempts to conceptualise their contemporary relations and effects on the wider region. The chapter covers the period from the turn of the twentieth century, to Japanese energy calculations following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011, and engagement with Vision 2030. The chapter further charts wider how energy and security relations have developed over time, East Asian soft power penetration into these Gulf Cooperation Council societies and the complementary nature of strategic diversification and demand between these states.
