    Geopolitically, it is not anything else more important  for Romania’s  foreign policy today  than what is going on in Ukraine.

UKRAINE SEEN FROM BUCHAREST - A PERSONAL POINT OF VIEW

Geopolitically, it is not anything else more important  for Romania’s  foreign policy today  than what is going on in Ukraine. Some will say that it is more important to consider what is taking place on  the Western side of our territory, namely what Hungary under  Fidesz and  Victor Orban is doing; or the evolution of the European Union on the eve of the Brexit without deal already announced  and after;  others will say that Western Balkans is more important for the foreign policy of Romania due to the complexity of the security landscape;  or the evolution of Turkey on the international arena after the acquisition of S-400 from Russia and the US warnings connected with that fact which is at least an  inadequacy at the NATO level .
But in my opinion ,for us is most important security issue is  Ukraine- even, I should recognize,  it is very difficult to establish a hierarchy  in the field of security .  Here are three motives for what we are of such an opinion

O TRASATURA SISTEMICA : TEAMA DE CHINA(1)

Nimic nu este mai evident azi in ansamblul sistemului international de state  decat teama de  ascendenta fara precedent a Chinei in ultimele doua decenii  si privind  locul si rolul sau global  in viitorul apropiat sau mai departat.

Are the transatlantic controversies going to impact the business climate in the region?
