WEB Notes: I remember at one point in time it was a very rare moment to hear a world leader call for “a new world order”. Now it is so common we think nothing of it. Psychology.
In 2015 world leaders were jumping all over themselves calling for the world to unite. It is a growing trend that will continue as we move forward.
Russia wants global leaders to embrace a new world order where the U.S. and other western nations are not calling the shots, but rather sovereign nations will follow international law based on its national interests. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow was seeking closer with Washington while also refusing to cower to the NATO militant alliance led by the U.S.
“Responsible leaders should make a choice, I hope that the choice will be done in favor of creating a democratic and just world order,” Lavrov said at the Munich Security Conference Saturday attended by world leaders, including Vice President Mike Pence. “If you want, you can call it a ‘post-West world order,’ when each country, based on its sovereignty within the rules of international law, will strive to find a balance between its own national interests and the national interests of partners.”
