This century is Asia’s moment in time. Europe was gradually replaced as a center of the world system  as a consequence of the incredible rise of China. The main great powers already involved in the new “great game” of 21st century in Central Asia are USA, China and Russia. How are they considering their own chances in that hard to believe dangerous game and which are their strategy to reach the projected targets?

          On May 9, 2015, North Korea announced that it had test-fired successfully a ballistic missile from a submarine. According to “The New York Times”, The North’s official News agency said that: “There took place an underwater test-fire of Korean-style powerful strategic submarine ballistic missile,” /…/the test-fire proved and confirmed that the ballistic missile fired from the submarine fully met the requirements of the latest military science and technology.” What North Korea is doing is a clear blow to the stability and security of the North-East Asia region and creates apprehensions within  the entire international community.

What would happen to European Union after the British election and overwhelming victory of David Cameron’s Conservative party?

V-Day , the celebration of the victory over Nazi Germany during the World War II was an occasion to evidence the rift between the West and Russia. The invitations extended by Russia to the heads of states and governments of the West to attend the military parade in Moscow were declined and the argument put forward for doing is the best summarized by Donald Tusk, the president  of the European Council: “A presence at the military parade, hand-in-hand with today’s aggressors and a person using weapons against civilians in eastern Ukraine?

Summitul de la Riga – dezamăgire sau așteptări prea mari?

Evenimentul are loc într-un context internațional tensionat și ca și acum doi ani, (înaite de summitul de la Vilnius) analiștii și comentatorii se întrec în critici la adresa declarației care urmează a fi semnată. Dacă în 2013 reproșurile aduse erau legate de nesemnarea Acordului de Asociere cu Ucraina, anul acesta principala nemulțumire este legată de lipsa vreunei referiri în declarața Summitului de la Riga față de o posibilă perspectivă de aderare a Moldovei, Ucrainei sau Georgiei la Uniunea Europeană. Desigur, mulți analiști s-au grăbit să pună această reținere a UE pe seama intimidărilor venite din partea Rusiei și a lipsei de coerență a politicii externe europene.
