For long time, the US- Gulf relation was the core in taking about the GCC relation with the west, and it looks as if the European countries from the other hand, have failed to keep up with the increasing importance of the region. The EU and its member states continue to deal with the GCC States from the commercial and defense ties perspective. European states should now think about developing a more coherent approach towards the region. From the other hand the Gulf States need to relook to EU as a key global partner.
So this paper will try to focus on the Arab Gulf state relation with EU, and will try to answer some important questions: what is the key ties between both sides? Should we deal with the EU and GCC as one entity reacting in this relation? How does EU perceive the GCC? How does GCC perceive EU? Is there any real movement from both sides to change any negative perceive?
