The rivalry between China and the United States in the new century is one of the most important drivers of geopolitical rivalries at various regional and trans regional levels. China is considered one of the great powers that has the potential to become a superpower and challenge the current position of the United States, something that has worried US strategists and officials. As a result, in the second decade of the 21st century, the United States shifted the focus of its national security strategy from the Middle East to East Asia in order to counter this potential threat. With the withdrawal or diminishing presence of the US presence in the region, traditional US allies such as Israel and Arab countries are afraid of expanding the sphere of influence of their geopolitical rivals, namely Iran and Turkey, and given the historical experiences of the region and Iran's geopolitical influence in the current situation, these countries have been forced to cooperate bilaterally and multilaterally. Israel has traditionally chosen the Peripheral Alliance strategy as a complement to its national security strategy. Given the possibility of a reduction in military forces in the Middle East, the Arab-Israeli agreement in the form of the Abraham Accords Peace Agreement seems to represent a new Rimland with the aim of controlling and limiting the geopolitical influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Using the descriptive-analytical method and based on library and Internet resources, tries to provide a geopolitical explanation of the Abrahamic Accords in terms of its effects and consequences on regional relations in the Persian Gulf and especially the goals and interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The results show that if the project is implemented, we can expect the emergence of a new regional Rimland with the aim of controlling and weakening Iran.
