On 13-15 February this year, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi travelled to the Middle East on the formal occasion of attending the regular “World Government Summit”, which is one of the many international forum platforms that have emerged in recent years. Launched in 2015 at the initiative of the leadership of the United Arab Emirates, the World Government Summit is held annually with a different composition of participants in the capital Abu Dhabi. After addressing the forum and holding a number of meetings “on occasion”…

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 territory of modern Turkey has economic-geographical and military-strategic advantages due to its control over the Black Sea Straits of Bosporus and Dardanelles. Control of the Black Sea Straits has always been strategically important to the great powers in world geopolitics and trade. Great Britain and Russia often clashed over the right to control the Straits. In August 1914, German ships, including the cruiser Goeben and light cruiser Breslau, attacked Russian ports after passing through the Black Sea Straits. This led to the Ottoman Empire joining World War…

Canada has refused Russia’s request to extradite Yaroslav Hunka, the former Waffen-SS soldier, who had served in the SS Galicia Division, which committed massacres of Jews, communists, partisans, and anyone else the Nazis considered undesirable, during the German invasion of the USSR in World War II. Oleg Stepanov, the Russian ambassador to Canada, stated that he received a note from the Canadian government stating the lack of an extradition treaty as the reason for the refusal, an excuse that Russia could not accept…

As is well known, the Russian-Ukrainian military and political crisis began in no small measure because of NATO’s violations of the agreements previously reached with Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Treaty Organisation. In particular, the United States (whose “backyard,” as Russian President Vladimir V. Putin notes, is NATO) decided that NATO was the “backyard” of the United States. In particular, the United States (whose “backyard,” as Russian President…

In 1991, Saudi Arabia was one of the first countries to recognize Uzbekistan as a new independent Central Asian republic, marking a significant milestone in the modern history of relations between the two nations. During the 1990s and 2010s, the two countries cooperated on several occasions. One notable example is Uzbekistan’s active participation in so-called mosque diplomacy, which involved the construction of religious sites in several states with large Muslim communities, funded by Saudi Arabia…

As the unipolar world created by the West is slowly but steadily slipping into the abyss, it is becoming more and more obvious what kind of “hegemon” the United States is. At present, as well as in the past, this state does not comply with the decisions of international organisations created by it, resorting to solving any problems only with the help of brute military force. At the same time, Washington and its armed forces kill and maim hundreds of thousands of people around the globe with impunity and without any shame. It is enough to remember what the “democratic”…

During a ceremony held on January 6, 2024 to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of former President Kim Dae-jung, who led the country from 1998-2003, leading politicians from rival parties called for “unity and tolerance” to bring harmony into society deeply divided by “extremist politics”. “Politics is now mired in confrontation, antagonism and division,” National Assembly Speaker Kim Jin-pyo, co-chair for the event, said in his congratulatory speech. “What former President Kim would have wanted from us was, of course, national unity,” he said. Former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who also serves as a co-chair, said the politics had partly instigated distrust and hatred, stressing that “national unity and solidarity” were the only way to overcome crises…

Transport corridors remain a major obstacle to the dynamic and integrated economic development of individual States and entire regional communities on the African continent, as the quality and quantity of roads and railways do not fully meet existing needs. Some of the factors contributing to the low level of transport infrastructure development in Africa compared to the global average include…

Long-promoted Western ideas and theses are now openly rejected by the world majority. To the West’s dismay, Western countries today openly acknowledge these facts, raising fears among the leaders and their associates within the Western world minority. Many pseudo-experts and so-called Western “intellectuals” associated with the pro-NATO establishment are beginning to openly talk about ongoing processes…

A number of prominent voices, now including those in the West, are beginning to openly say that not only has the time of Western minority dominance over world affairs come to an end, but that the Western system as a whole is collapsing, with all its consequences. All this confirms the thesis that the future system of international relations implies not only the final establishment of a multipolar world order, but also a post-Western international order. Emmanuel Todd, a well-known French historian, sociologist, social anthropologist, writer and journalist, who once predicted the collapse of the USSR in 1976…

The September-December 2023 period witnesses significant progress in the harmonization of the most territorially disputed border in Central Asia, namely the border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Of the nearly 1,000 kilometers of the line separating the two republics, almost 400 kilometers remained uncoordinated for many years Now the parties are announcing deadlines for the completion of all work designed to exhaust the conflict potential of the problem. Work on harmonizing the Tajik-Kyrgyz border intensified in October 2023 – almost 75 kilometers of the border…
