<Background and Purpose>

Understanding the Linkages between America’s Indo-Pacific and Middle East Strategies.

   ◎  It is expected that American force employment in the Middle East will influence South Korea’s security, both directly and indirectly via America’s Indo-Pacific strategy.

   ◎  By highlighting the linkages between the U.S. strategies in the two regions, the current research will document how the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy has theater-wide strategic implications, as well as its influence on the security situation on the Korean Peninsula.

 

<Research Results>

Insights about the linkages between the U.S. Indo-Pacific and Middle East Strategies.

   ◎  The pattern of American force employment in the Middle East shapes Washington’s ability to execute its Indo-Pacific strategy.

      - Proactive employment of American naval and air assets in the Middle East does not necessarily bode well for Washington’s Indo-Pacific strategy. Specifically, the capacity, readiness, and capabilities of the U.S. air and naval forces are likely to be diminished as a result.

   ◎  There is growing interdependence between the Indo-Pacific and Middle East strategies.

      - There is an increasing likelihood of Middle East strategy taking on a supporting role for Indo-Pacific strategy, and the strategic importance of the Indian Ocean is growing within the context of the supported-supporting relationship between the two strategies.

      - It is expected that the dynamic employment of U.S. military forces will accelerate, in order to link the two strategies. Furthermore, the U.S. military’s innovative operational concept, developed in response to China’s anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) threats, will also be integrated into how Washington employs its military forces across the Middle East.

   ◎  The South Korean military needs to realize the security implications of the linkage between American strategies in the Middle East and Indo-Pacific.

      - Explore ways in which the Rep. of Korea- U.S. alliance can be leveraged in the Middle East.

      - Formulate strategy that accounts for limitations in American force employment and the acceleration of dynamic force employment in Indo-Pacific.

      - Pay attention to the implications of increased the U.S. Army firepower and innovations in operational concept.
