CHINA’s REACTION TO USA WITHDRAWAL FROM INF TREATY

Not only that the withdrawal of USA ( August 2) and Russia ( August 3 ) from the INF Treaty of 1987  was considered  by majority of  experts as a significant event leading to the overthrow  of the arms control system at the global scale. But the comments  with that occasion of US Defense Secretary , Mark Ester, about the intention of his country to deploy such  weapons in  Indo-Pacific area  has created an uproar in that  large area. Primarily, China has been the loudest voice condemning such a development.

SPARKS OF WAR IN THE PERSIAN GULF ?

In May – June this year, the threat of war in the Persian Gulf has been increasingly   high. Under the pressure on the hawks of Trump administration the incidents has multiplied in the Gulf and not only, after the deployment of an American air carrier in the Gulf ( ‘Abraham Lincoln’  being sent in May ). The Iranian shoot-down an  American drone on June 20, and has brought the likelihood of war nearer. President Trump allegedly postponed an already ordered   military operation to strike several Iranian targets on June 20, and he boasted in a tweet that the number of Iranian  lives lost following it convinced him that it is  morally wrong such a reply to Theran.

UK: ‘No Deal’ BREXIT or General Elections ?

According to the British system- which with that occasion has entered under the fire of criticism for being undemocratic ( ?!?) – Boris Johnson has become PM. Tory Party maintained the helm of UK and had it itsa disposal the way of that country to the future. Especially important in that moment, knowing that Brexit should be solved in accordance with the result of the June 2016 referendum, and also to begin to reinstate the economic ( and not only ) relationship with EU- with or without deal – and also with other states in the system to tackle with the consequences of leaving EU.
         On July 24 Bojo was invested by the Queen Elisabeth in the chair of PM and the following day he has delivered his inaugural speech in front of the Commons .  In  “ The Spectator”  it was  published the same day the evaluation of what Boris Johnson said.

But it is useful to imagine the trajectory on which we could now be embarked.”
