For this podcast, I talked with Luca Anceschi, Lecturer in Central Asian Studies at the University of Glasgow, about the implications of a potential Iran deal for Central Asia.
What would Iran opening for business mean for Central Asia, especially for energy exporters Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan? Can Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan benefit if Uzbekistan remains autarkic and closed? How would it affect the different Eurasian economic integration schemes that the US and China advocate for Central Asia? How would it affect pipeline projects like TANAP and TAPI?
