Alwaght- Security pacts are the most common type of cooperation between the allied countries worldwide that are mainly based on mutual interests in areas like security and military cooperation and a common perception of threats and challenges.
The US is one of the parties that is engaged in security agreements with several other countries and encourages the allies to do so. Earlier this years, reports emerged about the US negotiations with its Arab allies, mainly Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates, to push them to form a military alliance aimed at countering Iran’s growing power in the West Asia. The plan, dubbed Arab NATO, is expected to see Washington and the Arab allies meet on October 11 and 12 to discuss the bloc’s foundation. The plan echoes NATO’s Article 5, which considers an attack against a member an attack against all and draws a collective response. The idea was first raised by Saudi Arabia when the US President Donald Trump visited the Arab kingdom in last May.
