I like the guy in the audience who is sleeping.
Iran - we all Muslims, we should all stand together with us leading the way.
Turkey - we want to recreate the Ottoman empire with us leading the way.
Azerbaijan - ha ha. We are the only ones making money by being vaguely cooperative. Phtt.
Lots of talk of cooperation, and a barely hidden dislike between the parties on the stage.
I've been meaning to look where the resources of fresh water are in this area, and the Iranian mentioned it was Krygyzstan I think. I wonder if
looking to secure that would put them into conflict with China.
The whole region needs water and food stability, and none of them are serious about what might be their most important challenge to stability.
Israel and Libya seem to the only ones in the whole arid region that do take it seriously.
Lots of population, few places for water or food production and apparently little interest in securing it. Interesting priorities that the elite in
these nations have.
