The question of Turkey’s possible integration with Europe has been under discussion for decades and is one of the most problematic issues in post-war European history. Turkey was one of the founders of the Council of Europe in 1949, has been an “associate member” of the EEC since 1964, and officially applied for EU membership on April 14, 1987, but was only granted candidate status 12 years later, at the Helsinki Summit in 1999. Following the Brussels summit of December 17, 2004, accession negotiations with Turkey began on October 3, 2005. Turkey appears to have harmonized its laws with those of the EU…

The dissolution of the Soviet Union and the fall of the wall of Berlin in 1989 gave birth to the unipolar world order led by the United States. Globalization also emerged as a byproduct of this unipolar world order. The United States succeeded in aligning most of the countries towards one singular interest, that of the United States and its allies’. The global supply chain network pinnacled to an unprecedented level during this era of globalization. Former US President George Bush proclaimed in his speech, in 1991, that this US-led world order…

The basis of the US-led liberal world order was laid at the end of the World War 2. However, the United States and the Soviet Union kept on fighting over the spread and influence of their respective ideologies till the 1990s. The United States’ victory in the Cold War established its hegemony over the globe. Many Western philosophers, at that time, believed that the US-led liberal world order was here to stay. Famous American political philosopher, Francis Fukuyama, in his book “The End of History and the Last Man,” also endorsed this notion…

Russia and India are moving forward, exploring the adoption of a native BRICS currency. The move has garnered keen interest from Western interest, but so far, no key media has reported. A story in Middle East Economy a few days ago tells us Russia and India have joined forces to expand the influence of the BRICS alliance through digital economy initiatives. For the Western alliance, Russia/India dealings are really only the tip of a humongous iceberg. Some experts say and isolated America is right around the corner.

South Africa is preparing for retaliatory measures from Western regimes meant to punish one of Africa’s leading powers and a BRICS member for launching an international legal prosecution against the Zionist regime. The South African leadership, however, believes in the country’s ability to resist these Western actions. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has warned…

Many Western politicians are well aware of what a powerful blow the West has dealt itself by its self-serving policies and, in particular, anti-Russian sanctions and the fight against Russia, undermining its reputation among many countries around the world. Former Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl listed the consequences of illegal anti-Russian sanctions on the air of the Turkish TV channel TRT World. According to Kneissl, many countries, observing the sanctions against Russia, assume that it can happen to them as well. “I would say that there is a loss of trust in many institutions. And those are the main losses…

The recent meeting in Moscow between Chad’s President Idriss Deby and Russia’s Vladimir Putin is the latest sign Africa is embracing the emerging multipolar world order. Western reaction to this and a score of other linkups has been on the level of a geopolitical panic. One by one, and in batches, the nations of Africa are spurning the old-world imperialists, especially France. And Chad is a keystone nation in the dead center of the continent…

The dominance of the West in international relations is coming to an end not only geopolitically, but also in terms of geoeconomics. Despite the loud declarations of Western elites and attempts to slow down this process by all means, everything indicates that the share of the Western minority in international economic relations will continue on a downward path…

Very soon, Pakistan will be forced to cease any ideas of adopting a so-called “hedging” strategy to survive and thrive in the new multipolar world. With China, Russia, and the growing BRICS contingents in focus (particularly Iran), it should be clear that critical Indo-Asian nations and a handful of smaller states will soon hop on the Russo-Chinese bandwagon. The U.S. and its allies have but one chance to remain key partners and maintain economic and geostrategic security. Acceptance of the rising multipolar world community and cementing policies…

In his exclusive interview with the New Eastern Outlook, Mr Zenebe Kinfu Tafesse, President of the Union of African Diasporas, described how he sees Russian-African relations, explained why the Second Russia-Africa Summit turned out to be more economic and shared his thoughts on neocolonialism in Africa…

One of the main defining features of the UN Climate Change Conference COP28 2023, which just concluded in December, was the rapidly growing influence of the so-called Global South. This was reflected in the issues discussed and deals struck, including a landmark agreement on ‘loss and damage’ on the opening day of the summit. While the concept of the Global South dates back to the 1960s, the use of the term has grown significantly in recent years, including during the violent conflict in Gaza between Israel and Hamas. While the Global North generally corresponds to the Western world…

The visit of Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar to Russia on December 25-29 is an event that deserves attention in terms of assessing the main trends in the change in the world order, which was established for a short time with the end of the Cold War. Despite the fact that today we can only roughly imagine the most general characteristics of its (future) image. But doing this will be pointless if it becomes clear that the “transition process” will inevitably result in another global massacre…
