Yalta, Potsdam, Helsinki, Belgrade. How can we build a more secure world order?



My write-up, for RT, on the International Public and Scientific Conference on peace, security and co-operation, held in Belgrade, Serbia.

The ongoing war in Syria. The rise of Islamic State. Terror attacks in Sinai, Paris, Lebanon, Iraq and Tunisia. The shooting down of a Russian jet by NATO member Turkey.

This was the backdrop of events to last week’s major international conference on peace, security and co-operation in Belgrade, Serbia.

Speakers from over 20 countries - myself included- addressed the key question: how can we build a more secure world order, where countries - large and small- respect national sovereignty and international law and where dialogue and diplomacy replaces war and the threat of war?

I am curious if you saw the anti-Trump firestorm to Mr. Trump's response to the allegation Pres. Putin "murdered journalists" by saying the US did it too. Unsurprisingly, not a single American reporter brought up the US Air Force murder of 16 Serbian journalists at RTS in 1999. Even if true President Putin murdered the Russian journalists, Pres. Putin's body count is substantially smaller than NATO in that department.
