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…

Although Turkish Parliament Speaker Numan Kurtulmuş recently criticized the lack of cohesion and disorganization in the Islamic world regarding the struggle of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, there is still significant activity in the Middle East by pro-Iranian forces against Israel. The Houthis in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon are among the groups at the forefront of the pro-Palestinian movement. They have been carrying out attacks on Israel and its allies in the region, which is creating a new reality in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Since November 2023, the Houthi militia…

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”…

The ongoing Palestinian-Israeli war in the Gaza Strip is acquiring new forms of internationalisation of the conflict. It is no secret that the disproportionate actions of the Israel Defence Forces in destroying civilians and destroying infrastructure in Gaza are aimed not only at eliminating Hamas as a militant and political force, but also at forcing Palestinians as much as possible into so-called “voluntary resettlement” from the enclave and restoring Tel Aviv’s full control over the seaside territory. Israel’s actions are widely resented by the overwhelming number of countries in the Middle East…

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…

As reported by the KCNA, the launch was in response to the second meeting of the “nuclear consultative group” which proposed a “large-scale joint exercise to prepare a ‘nuclear counterstrike’ against our Republic.” As we previously reported, at the event, the allies agreed on a plan to include nuclear operation scenarios in the 2024 military exercises, including the Ulchi Freedom Shield summer exercise. Kim Jong-un, his daughter and commanders from the DPRK’s General Department of Missile Engineering attended the drill: at 8:24 a.m…

More than 30000 Palestinians, including civilian women and children, have been killed by Israel since October 7, 2023, in Gaza. According to estimates, Israeli forces kill one child every 10 minutes and almost all the population of Gaza has become homeless. Israel is bombing refugee camps, mosques, churches, and hospitals with impunity. People in Gaza are facing a triangle of death as famine, drought, and war have attacked them simultaneously. Israel is hindering all the food supplies into the Gaza enclave. However, despite such war crimes by Israel, the international community and…

Israel’s nearly three-month war on Gaza, in which more than 20,000 Palestinians have been killed and more than 53,000 wounded, has caused enormous destruction to the housing stock in the Strip and brought the existence of more than 2 million people in Gaza to the brink of disaster. There is a growing wave of sympathy for the suffering of the Palestinians around the world and a corresponding condemnation of Israel’s barbaric bombardment. Unfortunately, the desperate attempts of the United Nations to halt hostilities and achieve…

The meeting of the UN Security Council on December 8 was a rather sad and very instructive event for all mankind. At this meeting, the United States used its veto right to brazenly and rudely single-handedly block a resolution introduced by the United Arab Emirates and supported by 97 countries. This resolution, as we know, demanded an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in order to put an end to the insane, unprecedented and deliberate daily killings of Palestinians in Gaza by the Israeli army. With its shameful vote, the United States proved and showed to the whole world…

Despite a solid list of differences and contradictions between Washington and Ankara (involving some regional issues related to the Mediterranean, the Middle East and the South Caucasus, anti-Russian sanctions, relations with Russia and China, Armenian, Cypriot, Kurdish and Palestinian issues, etc.), Turkey still remains an important NATO member and a military-political ally of the United States. The dynamics of regional events in the Middle East, associated with the ongoing military conflict between Hamas and Israel, have again revealed some contradictions between the United States and Turkey…
