1932 in favor of his eldest son side bin time mood who became the 13th sultan of muskets and on. an exchange of letters from the time provides an insight into the level of influence and control by british administrators in the gulf region. on the surface they seem to be a simple exchange of news and a routine visa request but they actually highlight the complex diplomatic protocols involved in dealing with chef dumbs who have longstanding differences. the 1st letter is from britain's political agent in the truthful state of sharjah to his opposite number in bahrain he tells him about the death of chef safe but how madam sharpie ruler officiate on the 24th of december 1938 and that his brother mohamed bin hammam had had succeeded him. the 2nd letter follows on from that

went on the 2nd of march 1939 the british political agent in muscat writes to his counterparts in kuwait seeking advice on a diplomatic problem. the sultan has sent me a musket passport given by his government to mohammed bin hamad shaikh of for jira for granting of a visa to bahrain. the sultan claims the shaikh to be his subject and granting a visa by me would amounts to all right. ignition of his claim to for gerry which place from our records appears clearly not to be in the sultan's territories please telegraph your instructions as the shake wants to leave by the next steamer. the british political agent in kuwait replied with a compromise. you should give muhammad to some of how much shaker fujairah some sort of unofficial paper to enable him to land at bahrain and thus avoid raising

the question of sovereignty of. the emirates so they would call the emirates that the course is not the emirates the hut or told them as an independent at this stage were not very wealthy and powerful some had loyalty to the sort of the mascot. and some say were operating independently. couldn't tell you could had by the novel sign a year by the thought oh so now you're bored enough to date as yet or to have been lead a hack yes yes he was the timing is fair and to have him c.s.e. tell the it had he had was a bit ahead of you about one. other company. it's a lot of dough to go sight better than it. was i missed some yourself and the lady

withdraw from the gulf region entirely for financial reasons they needed to save money. at the same time she has. forged closer relationships with the other trishul states leading to the formation of the united arab emirates in 1971 but this was also a crucial time for a modern oman oil production began in 1967 giving the country resources to develop its own infrastructure. in 1970 armand's new leader saddam was been sidelined saeed's began using that revenue to finance a huge liberalization and modernization program and. i think the background to the establishment of the u.a.e. is absolutely the decision by the british to leave the gulf which i recall correctly is a decision they took in 1967 as a result of cuts in the british defense budget or time but they didn't actually
3:52 pm
implement fully until i think it was 970 was. i think the all money government recognized that the shake them were more or less independent of a mine where there were issues with almost every one of those shake them as was was territories so you have you know you have a dispute with i would be robber a me you have a dispute with dubai around a place called when he had to you have a dispute with fujairah about libya. so when the u.a.e. was founded rasul did not join the new federation immediately there was a short period of short delay and i think that to lay itself explains the ambivalence about identity that existed on the ground
3:53 pm
so there were those in russell karima that wish to be part of oman there were those in russell climate that wish to be part of the new federation. so this was a very delicate situation and actually you can see this if you look at the map of the northern emirates now and the most on the peninsula for example this was an area where the shake would have had loyalty towards the rear of moscow but the other shows that they came in they went sometimes they would be with the rue muscat and sometimes they would be acting independently another. fact that's possibly a good example of this. means is. it was for many years oman had a representative in the emirates not an ambassador now again this reflected ambivalence about identity if you
3:54 pm
have an ambassador you are acknowledging that your interlocutor the place where the ambassador goes to represent you is a foreign place and i i i don't think omanis thought of the emirates as a foreign place. and face 1st because they are. almost so close to each other the reese they seem to mean going they don't see themselves as fully separates and. in a formal sense to put an ambassador in place is to acknowledge that other place as fully separate. britain's formal relationship with all mine lasted from 820 to 971. while opinions on the british presence vary widely

a comparison between its withdrawal from the gulf and its departure from palestine egypt and aden highlight the difference between britain's involvement here and elsewhere in the middle east. but that. the whole. lisbon that illegal. has he at the very latest and not doesn't have he has a. lot of your lot there are big now you can and there you were in the way for that now lie you did and your. team have not seen how similar they. at best to tell the whole lot. the dates are often what the exact images had that is short.
3:56 pm
they have. and i like how they were odd and they were taken on what an asher. suit on caboose overthrew his father in a bloodless coup in 1970 but his 50 year rule completely transformed oman. he had no children when he died in january 2020 but nominated his cousin haitham as his preferred successor in a sealed envelope opened only after his death in january 2021 sultan has made his eldest son crown prince. the challenge for them both is that amani oil will not last forever and so how they manage to sustain the country's historic influence across the gulf will define our man's future.
