Peace in the Middle East and Tension in Europe

The new doctrine of Russian foreign policy, which was recently signed by Putin, is actually a reaction against the new national security strategy of the United States, which considers Russia a “dangerous threat to the vital national interests of the United States” and China as a “fundamental and systematic challenge against it”. The new US national security strategy adds about China: “China’s biggest and most dangerous challenge for the United States is China’s hostile and increasing efforts to change the regional system in the Indian and Pacific Oceans and to change the international system, and to justify them in the direction of Beijing’s developmentalist interests and goals.”

This is while Vladimir Putin, the “Czar” of Russia, described America as “the main driver of anti-Russian policies in the world” and said that “by launching a combined war against Russia, the West has put Russia’s existence and survival at risk.” . Putin also said that “we must put an end to the influence of the West in the world”.

But Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who is in charge of economic development and the strengthening of the country’s land, sea, air and cyber forces, sums up China’s “tolerant goals” this way: “To take over the global political arena by 2025.” “Developing high and advanced technology and mastering the laws governing the future of technology by 2035, and reaching the position of a great scientific superpower and drawing a new world order by 2049, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese Communist Revolution led by Mao Zedong.”

Xi Jinping’s response to the US challenge was an all-out partnership with Russia and preparations to reclaim Taiwan, in addition to the “One Belt One Road” project. But Russia showed a quick and practical reaction to the American challenge through the attack on Ukraine. This attack was launched in the framework of a strategic and geopolitical project to end the US-led unipolar world order and establish a multipolar world order.

In fact, in the current geopolitical and strategic situation of the world, a kind of contradiction can be seen because the Third World War is going on in Europe, with Moscow on one side and Ukraine on behalf of NATO on the other side, although Putin is the leader of this war. calls it “special military operations”, there is a possibility that it will turn into a nuclear war at any moment. In the Far East, the tension between the US and China over Taiwan is about to lead to a military confrontation.

Meanwhile, the situation in the Middle East is moving towards reconciliation and peace. Because the US, China and Russia are unitedly trying to ensure stability and peace in the Middle East through the creation of a regional security system. This is while Beijing recently mediated the Saudi-Iranian agreement and Russia is also trying to reconcile Syria and Turkey. Russia also encourages the Arab countries to improve their relations with Damascus, and the mutual opening of the consulates of Saudi Arabia and Syria is also in this framework.

The United States is opposed to the improvement of Arab relations with Syria before reaching a political solution based on Security Council Resolution 2254, but welcomed the agreement between Saudi Arabia and Iran, albeit with displeasure. America, on the one hand, is trying to establish peace between the Palestinians and Israel, and on the other hand, to quell the crisis caused by the judicial coup in Israel, which the most extreme government of this country in history, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, is trying to do in the judicial institution. and this action has led to a deep split within the Israeli society.

Netanyahu, who surrendered to the extreme Zionists, wants to save himself from the trial and prison that he is facing on charges of corruption, bribery and treason. Now, under pressure from Washington and Israeli public opinion, Netanyahu has been forced to suspend this judicial coup, but the evidence shows that his action can be nothing more than a trick and a deception to buy time until the end of the Knesset vacation on the Jewish Passover. be

Now, considering that the war in Europe has dragged on for a long time and the tension in the Far East has also reached its most dangerous stage and may lead to a military confrontation, several questions are raised about peace and stability in the Middle East:

The first question is whether the desired peace in the Middle East is strategic and durable, or tactical and based on cross-sectional factors that change with changing calculations and conditions? The second question is whether the great powers will continue to support peace and stability in the Middle East despite the conflict in Europe and the Far East and the competition for influence in the Middle East. And the third question is, what will be the task of the conflicts and differences between the regional powers in the Middle East, and where will the unacceptable development projects in this region lead?

These questions are very complex and difficult, and finding answers to them requires more time.
