    Iran’s Strategic policies toward Arab worlds

    TEHRAN _ Iran's relations with Arab countries have long been subject to change, tension, crisis, even war. Prior to the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, relations with Arab countries, especially their neighbors and, in particular, Iraq, were based on threat indicators. Iran was directly in the US-led Western-style camp and was part of the Western alliance system against the Soviet Union in the division of the Cold War, while Iraq in the East Camp Was led by the Soviet Union. Iran was at that time a regional mission that was counterbalanced by the expansion of the Soviet Union's influence to the south, in contrast to Iraq, advocating the expansion of Soviet influence in the region.
