The retreat of the West centers the summit of Munich

-

The German president, Frank Walter Steinmeier, inaugurated this Friday the 56th edition of the Munich Security Conference, which is held in the midst of various international crises, and not only at the level of military conflicts, but also at latent threats such as climate change. In his inauguration speech in the Bavarian capital, Steinmeier regretted that there are times when even “the idea of ​​an international community is being questioned.” “It is not something new, it is a very dangerous return to the past,” he added, citing China and Russia as destabilizing countries.

According to Wolfgang Ischinger, director of the summit, “the world has become more dangerous in recent years. From the A of Afghanistan to the Y of Yemen, the crises cover almost the entire alphabet, passing through the S of Syria and the U of Ukraine ». For the organizers of this edition – which concludes this Sunday – the thread of the conference will be the “loss of Westernism”, because, they say, Western countries are no longer sure of their values ​​and the strategic direction they should follow in the world. «Is the world becoming less western?». This question, according to Ischinger, not only comes from outside, but also within the Western world the consensus about common values ​​is increasingly fragile. He explained that the conference will be the right scenario to discuss it and what it means that the parties that make it up cannot reach an agreement for a common strategy.

Munich welcomes more than 500 senior officials, including 40 heads of state or government and more than one hundred foreign and defense ministers. Among them, the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. In view of his first visit to this event, French President Emmanuel Macron said he will try to dissipate “possible misunderstandings, clarify messages on European security, defense and foreign policy issues,” according to the French presidency.
