AGSIW in Arabic
  الإيرانيون يصرون على أنهم لن يعدلوا اتفاق 2015، بل يريدون عودة واشنطن إليه دون أي تغيير. وليس من الواضح كيف سيسعى بايدن إلى ادراج برامج إيران الصاروخية في إطار اتفاق جديد
  الأولويات المتباينة لإمارتي أبوظبي ودبي أعطت الإمارات العربية المتحدة مجالاً للمناورة، ويتم بشكل متزايد تعزيز عناصر نهجي الإمارتين بالتحديد ضمن استراتيجية موحدة
  جاء تطبيق كلوب هاوس الجديد ليوفر مساحة مطلوبة للآراء المتنافسة ومواصلة النقاشات التي ظلت معلقة منذ سنوات في الخليج
