“Our country is fully open to an extensive dialogue on pressing issues on the regional agenda, intends to continue to actively participate in efforts to build a system of interstate relations in the Asia-Pacific region based on equality, mutual benefit and respect for each other’s legitimate interests” – Russian President Vladimir Putin told the participants of the Eastern Economic Forum held in Vladivostok, the Primorsky Krai capital, last September, once again designating such a complex and diverse region as the Asia-Pacific as one of the priority frontiers of the country’s modern foreign policy…

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”…

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…

France has suffered another geopolitical setback in Africa. On December 2, Burkina Faso and Niger announced their withdrawal from all G5 Sahel bodies, an institutional framework initiated by the leaders of Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Mali, Niger and Chad in 2014 and finally formed in 2017. On December 6, the Presidents of Mauritania and Chad also announced their withdrawal from the organization. Among the reasons for withdrawing from the alliance cited by the military leaders of the first two countries was the organization’s inability to effectively solve not only economic…

Apart from spending enormous sums on the military and weapons for allies, the National Defense Authorization Act extends the surveillance authority that allows the FBI to spy on foreigners and U.S. citizens without a warrant. Before plunging into the intricacies of the US budget policy, I would like to recall the statement made by US President Joe Biden in the fall of 2021 at the UN General Assembly, when he tried to convince the world community that the US infatuation with war had ended. “Going forward, the United States will no longer treat military power as an answer…

The issue of Sweden’s accession to NATO has once again acquired new facets of Turkish-Western (or rather, as the Jewish anecdote goes, Turkish-American) contradictions. Since May 2022, i.e. since Stockholm approached NATO for Sweden’s admission, Turkey has become the main obstacle to a positive resolution of the issue. Initially, Ankara’s demands included the Kurdish issue (more precisely, the fight against Kurdish terrorism and separatism), which was viewed rather liberally by the Swedish democracy. Turkey demanded to toughen Swedish…

On December 1, 2023, the KCNA reported that the DPRK had launched its first military reconnaissance satellite, Malligyong-1, into low Earth orbit, and that the adjustment procedure had been completed. And on December 2, the Satellite Operations Office which will act as an autonomous military intelligence agency, began to perform its tasks. The information received by the new Office will be reported to the relevant executive department of the Central Military…

On December 8, the US blocked international calls for the UN Security Council to take action in response on the catastrophic situation in the Gaza Strip and demand a ceasefire. Washington vetoed the resolution, with 13 of the other 14 council members voting in favor and Britain abstaining. The draft Resolution was tabled by the UAE, and was co-sponsored by nearly 100 other states. On the same day, UN Secretary General Guterres urged Council members to “spare no effort to achieve an immediate humanitarian ceasefire, the protection of civilians…
