Amidst the excitement over the killing of the ISIS chief Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, a development of much impact on international security passed by when Denmark made the innocuous announcement on October 30 that it would permit the proposed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to pass through its exclusive economic zone.

The concept of Greater Eurasia has been discussed at the highest levels of Russian academia and policy-making for some time. This week the policy was presented at the Council of Ministers and looks set to be enshrined, without fanfare, as the main guideline of Russian foreign policy for the foreseeable future.

It’s time for realism in EU-Russia ties: France’s Macron

Posted by seumasach on September 2, 2018

This looks like the decisive,long-awaited moment. Prompted by Trump, who seems intent on US withdrawal from Europe, the EU leadership knows that it must now look east. Rumours that Turkey is about to default on its debt could draw the EU closer to avoid heavy loses but negotiations would no longer be about Turkey joining the EU but, rather, the EU joining Turkey, Russia, Iran and , above all, China. The EU project becomes the Eurasian project.

HELSINKI (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron urged the European Union on Thursday to modernize its post-Cold War ties with Russia and pursue “strategic relations” with Turkey as well as other close neighbors, including in defense matters.

The Chinese economy is bound to surpass the 19-nation eurozone before the end of the year. You don’t need to be an analyst in China to know that. Common knowledge from Guangdong to Gansu is that China’s economy was bigger than Europe’s up to the mid-19th century. Then came a bad spell – unleashed by Brit gunboat diplomacy – for a short 150 years.

The Eurasian century is now unstoppable

New Eastern Outlook

4th October, 2016

I recently returned from a fascinating two week speaking tour in China. The occasion was the international premier of my newest book, One Belt, One Road–China and the New Eurasian Century. In the course of my visit I was invited by China’s Northwest University in Xi’an to give a lecture and seminar on the present global political and economic situation in the context of China’s New Economic Silk Road as the One Belt, One Road project is often called. What I’ve seen in my many visits to China, and have studied about the entirety of this enormously impressive international infrastructure project convinces me that a Eurasian Century at this point is unstoppable.

Putin, Erdogan have a deal on Syria

Posted by seumasach on August 13, 2016

Russia enters into a military alliance with a NATO member: a historic shift of immense proportions. The ball is in the court of the EU/USA now: to accept a new reality or to continue in the futility of new cold war, anti-Russian hysteria. Turkey, as many predicted has emerged as a pivotal power in the 21st century. Like Russia it looks both East and West and towards the unification of the “world island” as Mackinder termed it: a free trade area from Lisbon to Vladivostok no longer looks so far away. All this as Washington shifts towards Oceanic retrenchment and the vagaries of “containment” of China. We are not moving forward in a straight line but we are moving forward.

After Turkish President Recep Erdogan’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in St Petersburg, Ankara says the next administration in Syria should be inclusive and secular so that everyone can live with their beliefs. This is as close as Turkey has ever come to accept that Assad has a legitimate role to play.

Washington ‘Won’t allow rapprochement between Russia and Germany’

Posted by seumasach on February 1, 2016

The possibility of a close German-Russian alliance would certainly send shivers down the spine of representatives of the Anglo-American hegemonic interests. It also implies that what we are looking at is not so much a European Union but a Eurasian one with  Germany,Russia and China at its core.
