Russia President considered the move of the NATO and European Union toward integrating Ukraine in their sphere of influence and members as the “Last Nail to Close the Cofin” on Russia while he is still alive not to mention the violations of the assurances given and the agreements signed concerning the advance of NATO towards the Russian border.

Double Standard for President Macron and the French Diplomacy
Said Cherkaoui _ Said El Mansour Cherkaoui
President Macron keeps conducting “Diplomacy of the Girouette” concerning the Russia-Ukraine, the Morocco-Algerian misunderstanding and now the China-Taiwan imbroglio, all conducted with mastery that are dispersed pieces of puzzle shaped by his continual volte-faces.
The question is where did Mr. Macron found the wind to keep this Girouette turning East and West and reshaping the puzzle formed with opportunistic images without bringing any new wave of energies to solve the related problems.
The Answer my Friend is blowing the minds and it is in the wind, the new renewable energy for the French Diplomacy.
“Strategic Autonomy ” for Taiwan while condemning Morocco for reintegrating its own territory that was colonized by Spain with the support of France that was the colonizer of all North Africa and Central and Western Africa down to Cameroun.
Moroccan backed advisory council on Western Sahara (CORCAS) submitted a proposal to the United Nations during April 2006 that would grant autonomy to the people of Western Sahara. As per the plan, the Sahawaris would run their government under Moroccan sovereignty.
The law of the strongest and Darwinism are still in diplomatic use in this modern time which has international relations of the imperial and feudal order.

Biden and Putin “Unmasked”- Without XI
“Two Great Powers and Never Two Without Three”
Posted by Said El Mansour Cherkaoui
The International Economic Dynamics / Geopolitical Dynamics of today impose to the African, Asian and Latin American Nations the imperative to build their own regional integration as we say, “Together we rise, alone we Fall”.
Present Geopolitical Dynamics have validated this adage given: the ones who have the capacity to face outside challenges, conjunctural disruptive values and inconsistencies are the economies that are part of alliances and partnership with other countries.
This is less geopolitical dynamics, but a reversal of fortune for a Model of Development that the reason of its existence was to correct the consequences of colonialism by the setting of financial, trade and socio-political representative international organizations leading the regulation and the transfer of value from the newly independent economies toward the former metropolitan colonial nations and the United States.
This model became even contrary to the national interests of its own founders. One example is the current subsidies invested directly by the U.S. government in the semiconductor industry.
Biden-Putin Meeting on Neutral Ground: Geneva
Joe Biden had proposed at the start of the discussions to Vladimir Putin for more “predictable” relations between the United States and Russia, believing that “two great powers” had to manage their disagreements in a “rational” way, explained the American president, for his part. start of discussion.
The direct and indirect military interventions of Russia in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia have left their mark on the national and international geopolitical definitions henceforth identified in Putin’s Russia. The other important aspect for Russia is NATO’s push towards the East and the integration of countries that were formerly satellites of the Soviet Union into the fold of this Western military body.
Russian President Putin had often raised this question of the encirclement of Russia by NATO and especially what Ukraine should be considered in terms of relations between the European Union and Russia, including the possible accession of the Ukraine to NATO. Such accessions remain for the Kremlin a direct threat to their regional and national geo-strategic interests given the geographical location of Ukraine, Crimea in relation to access to the Mediterranean and especially the fact that Russia shares with the Ukraine a common border of more than 2000 km.
Ukraine as a neighbor who according to Moscow should remain neutral.
“Did the West give assurances to Gorbachev that the Atlantic Alliance would not expand to the East?
This question has been agitating minds, both in the East and in the West, for twenty years. It has experienced a new revival of interest with the recent publication of a study, much requested and commented on, by the American historian, Mark Kramer, entitled The Myth of a promise of non-enlargement of NATO   Mark Kramer, “The Myth of a No-nato-Enlargement Pledge to… .
As inferred from the title, the author seeks to demonstrate that the documents, which he describes as “declassified”, prove that there was no promise made to Gorbachev regarding future non-enlargement. NATO in the East and that the argument that there was such an engagement is therefore manifestly false.
2Mark Kramer’s argument leads us to question ourselves. Contrary to what he asserts, it is not a question on his part of a discovery of new documents nor of formerly secret sources which would put an end to the debate. What is particular in this debate on the – possible – promises made to Gorbachev is that the proponents as well as the opponents of the thesis of a promise of non-enlargement base themselves on precisely the same texts, published, and published exactly in the same form, in the numerous memoirs of the participants, in the collections of documents, and in the serious studies on the period concerned. At most, Kramer demonstrates that there are no sources – or at least he did not find any or he does not mention them – other than those previously known to support the claim. position of one side or the other.”
From this perspective, in contrast to Barack Obama who had called Russia a “regional power,” Biden said that as “two great powers” … “we are trying to figure out where we have common interests and where we can cooperate. And when they don’t, establish a predictable and rational way to handle our disagreements.
This consecration of President Putin confirms his status as a veteran of internationalized politics and diplomacy over the previous two decades. Indeed, the Russian president can put forward his long experience as a “survivor” in these maze since since the end of 1999, the year of his coming to power, he has already rubbed shoulders with four other American presidents, not to mention the other leaders of by the world, many of whom have since been sidelined.
However, such an “elevation of Russia” remains inappropriate for Republican Senator Lindsey Graham considering that the remarks of the American president Biden were “troubling”.
China: Camouflaged Head-to-Head Target
Political labeling in no way changes the ideological content of the product or the method used to maintain the advantage acquired in the field of merchants and customers (example of Pepsi in the USSR).
Business Politics remains the foundation of geo-strategic negotiation. The military file and the consolidation of regional positions around the poles and regions considered to be sensitive are the subject of controversy, agreements or sharing of control in order to regulate and manage and preserve the areas of influence already acquired while presenting themselves as the protector of the interests of the allied governments against any external threat.
The United States have often demonstrated their ability to negotiate and find ways to guarantee their income and profits, beyond geo-political or territorial or even ideological considerations. This strategic preeminence is financial, market, economic and institutional.
On the international financial level, despite its vacillation, the Dollar remains the currency of exchange and recognition in international transactions, including those hidden and illegal in the terms of exchange and transfer of value.
China is not invited either in the speech, or in the intentions, or in the declarations. China remains in the high seas of American globalism.
President Biden is also concerned by US intelligence assessments that Russian agents were behind serious cyberattacks on federal government servers, one of which was identified in 2020 as SolarWinds, the name of the company of cyber hacking. The second attack was orchestrated by DarkSide which disrupted the networks of a key fuel pipeline that serves 50% of the US East Coast supply. Darkside like others are experts who demand the payment of ransoms to put an end to their electronic intrusion into the networks of American multinationals.

In terms of geopolitics, the goal of the Biden presidency remains the anchoring of Europe in the barrage position against Turkey and Iran, the allied coalition with Asian countries and the naval maneuvers carried out with Japan, all as a response to the regional turbulence of North Korea and as a Western shield against the rise of China, considered the most serious Eastern threat since the defeat and the rallying of Japan to the liberal Western bloc. The second paragraph would be the reduction of Russia’s engagement with the states considered by the authorities in Washington as “rogue-states” or non-representative of their constituents (Venezuela, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen).
Once these nations are “under the European Radar,” the United States takes on the mission of coaxing and attracting Russia, which is more apt to adopt the Western way of life while concentrating on blocking the Emergence in force of the New China globalized by Xi in the rest of the world.

Without ever naming the United States, Xi Jinping posed as a defender of multilateralism and globalization, as he had already faced the same forum four years ago, just before Donald Trump came to power. .
Less than a week after Joe Biden took over the White House, Beijing’s strongman appeared to warn Biden against a continuation of his predecessor’s China policy, which had made China its number one rival. one, especially on the commercial and technological levels.
Beijing fears Biden will ally with Europeans
The regime of China fears in particular that Joe Biden wants to reunite the Westerners in front of him.
“Building clans or starting a new cold war, rejecting, threatening or intimidating others, imposing decoupling, disrupting supply chains or sanctions in order to cause isolation will only drive the world into division and even confrontation ,” warned Xi Jinping. “And the confrontation will lead us to an impasse” .
Under Donald Trump, in addition to a trade war launched against China, bilateral frictional issues have accumulated: Taiwan, Hong Kong, treatment of Uighur Muslims, technological rivalry…
Struggling with a Covid-19 epidemic which exploded in the United States, the former American president also blamed China, where the virus was spotted at the end of 2019, of being responsible for the pandemic.
As if to end the mandate of Donald Trump and his isolationist slogan of “America first” , Xi Jinping hollowly castigated the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris agreements on the climate, from Iranian nuclear power, as well as from the Unesco or the World Health Organization (WHO).
“Practice shows once again that blaming others for problems, wanting to go it alone or being imbued with narcissistic arrogance is doomed to failure ,” said the Chinese president. “May the torch of multilateralism illuminate the path of humanity!” “ , he pleaded.
China for globalization
“The world will not return to where it was before” by President Xi Jinping
“When the interests of all mankind are at stake, it is China’s duty to act, but also to achieve its goals” President Xi Jinping
However, integration into the international market with President XI is viewed through a national prism and an integrated vision of China as the maker of its own technological ambitions and aims for international market expansion, including the formulation of its own choice of alliance and partnership on a national, regional or global level.
Globalization has been the vehicle for economic growth and China’s emergence as a manufacturing powerhouse at the turn of the last century.
China and the United States: Becoming, Change and Discontinuity
– June 11, 2019 – Big Leap in the Western Train of Life
From Nixon to Trump and from Mao to Xi
A geo-economic power tends to become a geopolitical power. This is Xi Jinping’s medium-long term objective.
President Xi Jinping divided the history of the Chinese socialist revolution into three 30-year periods; the former to be dominated by “Mao Zedong Thought”, the latter to be dominated by “Deng Xiaoping Theory”, and the new period to be dominated by “Xi Jinping Thought” on “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era “.
This ambition of geo-strategic, political and technological realism is supported by the fact that China was the only major economy to generate a positive GDP in 2020. As a result, Xi Jinping launching the challenge of “no return of crank” to spur forward progress, he declared that “the world will not return to where it was before” . China is therefore turning the page of its own history and changing the reading of its globalization in the versions translated to the West on the Regional Multi-polarization of the New World today.
This projection also concerns the health condition of the world affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Faced with the many voices that had been raised in Western countries to ensure national autonomy, particularly in medical matters, Chinese President Xi Jinping specified that ” it is in no one’s interest to use the epidemic to return to globalization ” . While China has largely stemmed the Covid-19 on its territory, Xi Jinping estimated that the global pandemic ” is far from over “ .
On the climate, the Chinese president reiterated his commitment made in 2020: namely the reduction of polluting emissions in China before 2030, before achieving carbon neutrality 30 years later – that is to say to absorb as much as issuing them.
