Abstract: Economic integration theories usually emphasize the interdependence of countries in the trade. However, due to the dependence of developing countries on economic relations with other regions, review the WTN system as a complex network seem necessary. Network analysis can show the status of countries in the international trade network. This paper exploits recently-developed indicators based on network analysis to investigate the pattern of international trade pattern followed by Iran and its western Asian partner. The results of this study showed that west Asian countries, have had a greater increase in the number (and volume), of trade partners. Based on the centrality, it was found that only Emirates has been at the core of global trade network. Kuwait is in the inner-periphery and other countries and Iran have also taken place outside of the global trade network
