Recently, countries in the Middle Eastern region have expressed concerned about the United States commitment to helping out the region. Despite  concerns, United States Defense Secretary Llyod Austin denied such remarks and gave full reassurance on the United States commitment in the Middle East. Recent concerns have been expressed due to the lack of attention the Middle East is receiving and the immense attention the Biden Administration has been on China. Countries in this region such as long time allies in this region are still very concerned because Llyod Austin remarks were not backed by any other officials. Gulf States areas rely immensely on the backing of the United States military so this causes uncertainty within the Gulf state areas. The Biden administration has made clear that they only have diplomatic intentions with resolving conflicts within the region. It is important for the United States to stay proactive and committed to this region to avoid any potential disasters.
