Everything now suggests an economic growth for the Islamic Republic that coincides with an increasingly prominent role in the Middle East. Iran is in Syria, in support of the Assad regime; in Iraq, besides Iraqi forces engaged in the fight against the Islamic State, with the aim of creating an outpost on the Mediterranean. Iran has also involved in Yemen, where leads a proxy war against the historic rival, the Saudi Arabia. Economic forecasts and soft-war conducted by Iran could exacerbate already compromised diplomatic relations with Riyadh up to a possible escalation of violence to achieve leadership in the Middle East.
