English term or phrase: the Levant
It will be hard to craft diplomacy to avoid upsetting two delicate situations, on the Korean peninsula and in the Levant. Hardliners in the Bush administration will accept little less than a full admission and contrition from both countries involved. The North Koreans and Syrians will both struggle to avoid a loss of face.

neutral  duran3d: Levante a secas se pueden confundir con el Levante peninsular (una región española). Yo me quedaría con lo del Mediterráneo oriental, o bien especificaría Levante mediterráneo.

Como dice Durand, Levante solo se refiere también a una zona de España. Confieso que recién que estoy escribiendo esto veo que él también habló del mismo término.
También se usa a veces "Levante asiático", pero me quedo con la primera versión. Ver enlaces.
