The agreement will clearly bolster stability in the Middle East. However, this stability now has China in the background, which is an important aspect to consider. Although the western world was able to demonstrate an exemplary unity against Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, a united (and functional) European foreign policy remains a distant utopia when it comes to other geopolitical regions. Fully aware of that, China keeps increasing its presence in the third world.
The question is: will Europe understand the risk of letting other powers, in this case China, gradually take over dominance in other areas of the world?
