New regional balance enters new year

VERDA ÖZER writes:

The Middle East entered the new year with a new balance of power. Two weeks ago, Qatar and Egypt started normalizing their relations. This reconciliation, however, affects not only these two countries, but also the wider region to a great extent and implies a newly emerging equilibrium.
