Trump’s Election Manifesto and US Policy Outlook

... doubt, even a minute. This was the speech of a triumphant winner.

30 Years Fall of the Berlin Wall-Time for a New East Policy?

On November 9th was the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Time to reflect on the development of the last 30 years and why we are on the verge of a new Cold War today. Perhaps Gorbachev made the mistake of not securing his own design for a New Europe at the time. The United States and the United Kingdom got Germany´s NATO membership, France the euro, Gorbachev $ 13 billion for the withdrawal of troops and $ 1.5 billion food aid as the supply situation of the Soviet Union worsened and...

BRICS Strategic Partnership for Global Stability, Shared Security and Innovative Growth

... still retain significant conflict potential. The arms control architecture is deliberately undermined – the US unilateral withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was a rather dangerous step. Structural imbalances in the world economy are yet to be overcome. A serious threat to global economic growth is posed by such unfair competition practices as unilateral economic sanctions, trade wars and flagrant abuse of the US dollar status as the world reserve currency. The international ...

Remarks at the 12th Eurasian Economic Forum

Ambassador Vladimir Chizhov's remarks at the 12th Eurasian Economic Forum Recently the number of conferences, round tables and publications on existential matters in Brussels notably increased. Actually, the questions Europeans are asking themselves are quite topical: “How would the EU be able to become a full-fledged global player in the rapidly changing multipolar world?”, “How to react to rapid development of the Asia-Pacific region?” and “What should you do if your major transatlantic partner...

Bridges to India

... It is said the Bulganin tree started growing at a slant right away and toppled over a few years later (to be replanted discreetly in a less prominent space). Apparently, a few years after that, the Khrushchev tree also toppled over. Source: liders.rusarchives.ru (http://liders.rusarchives.ru/) It was as though the two countries had become so close by the 1970s, that even the trees in Bangalore knew about the inner workings of the Sovet Ministrov! But from this peak, there has been a steady and gradual ...
