:: Qeshm, A bright Outlook onto Active and Exuberant Iranian Island on Persian Gulf ::
Qeshm island, lying the length of the strait of Hormoz, enjoys an exceptional location between the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean such that vessels bound for all riverian states (Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman) are obliged to pass within proximity of its southern shores and all east and west bound air-traffic to pass through its air space. The island, by all definitions, is the gateway to the Persian Gulf. Qeshm thus stands watch over the channel through which the bulk of the world's oil and gas has always and shall, for the next 100 years, be transported.
