Against the background of rising issues in the European Union And East Asia, more than ten years of failures in the middle East would have to wait contentious And diverse discussions in the process of the election campaign, in research centers, in government, or in the media, said Richard Burt And Dimitri Simes at the official dinner in the Center for the National interest on the last working day of the week, informs. However, According to Burt And Simes, the discussion is limited And predictable.
Burt, former Ambassador to the United States in Germany, suggested that the United States have the opportunity to move forward in addressing issues of foreign policy, by answering 3 groups of problems.
First, what was the priorities of the foreign policy of the United States And, in parallel, how to make policy while prioritizing more selective And smart?
Secondly, what became the main foreign policy goals And objectives of the United States?
Burt argues that based on the value of the proposal, such as democracy promotion And regime change, " are more likely to do more harm than good." Most, According to Burt, value approach will be doomed to failure in the middle East.
And thirdly, what tools should be applied to the United States in conducting its foreign policy? And at the same time, military power remains a vital part of American diplomacy, its improper use can prove to be extremely costly, says Burt. According to him, the recent controversy around Iran's agreement demonstrates the lack of understanding in the media And in Congress about the essence of diplomacy.
Burt also writes about the fact that the agreed settlement of the situation in Ukraine would be a far more effective solution than a prolonged confrontation. And among them, the decision is obliged to include the efforts of the United States And European countries to force the Ukrainian government to have an impact on autonomy for Eastern Ukraine And to defer membership in NATO.
Symes, head of the Center for the National interest, also emphasizes traced the decline of the foreign policy discussion In the last few decades.
Too most American leaders often don't declare the predictable consequences, the most when dealing with unpleasant opponents, says symes. Making statements about the necessity of isolation of Russia And China, the policy of the United States did not initiate any serious conversation about how Russia And China in this regard will interact among themselves, And that their Union or interaction will mean for the United States.
