World press on Minsk talks, gas and Iranian nuclear program (February 13, 2015)

 

The Washington Post writes today about the triumph of Russia at the Minsk talks in an article "Putin appears the biggest winner of Ukrainian cease-fire talks".During 16 hours of talks in Minsk, President Putin managed to resist the attacks of Western leaders, despite their accusations that Russia was guilty of inciting the conflict in Ukraine. Thanks to diplomacy and the clear political course of Russia, it managed to negotiate a cease-fire and to prevent the introduction of new economic sanctions. In addition, the supplies of military equipment to Ukraine by Western powers was also postponed.In turn, the leader of Ukraine was unhappy with the decisions in Minsk. Empowering the breakaway regions, as well as the fact that Ukraine will not be provided with military assistance, did not satisfy the Ukrainian delegation. Apparently, the cease-fire was not the main purpose of the Ukrainian leader in the recent negotiationsGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed the results of the negotiations. Of course, along with the fact that Ukraine was guaranteed sovereignty and independence, the fact that further sanctions imposed would not be quite satisfying with Germany, leaders of which have realized that if not the first, but the subsequent impacts on the economy will be imposed on Europe.It's pretty clear that the Minsk talks are not the last on the way to peace in Ukraine, but it is clear that Russia will not sacrifice its principles and thereby strengthen its position in the world, despite all the obstacles from other world powersAnother American newspaper The New York Times reflects on the issue of gas supplies to Europe in the article "Even With Turkish Stream, Russia Can't Avoid Sending Gas via Ukraine"The European Union is very concerned by the fact that in 2019 is the deadline for the contract for the transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine. Russia offers Europe to build a pipeline to the Greek-Turkish border to implement the so-called Turkish Stream plan, but Brussels does not want to spend its money, at least for the moment. So what is to be done?The question of whether to provide financial assistance to Ukraine for the diversification of gas routes and other similar needs, or to try to solve their own, while not as sharp, but still the same problem arises. Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, Europe has received only a third of the gas needed to ensure their infrastructure.Europe and Ukraine are trying to reduce their demand for Russian gas. However, for a while they are failing to do so. At the same time, Russia is discovering more and more markets for their products, and that upsets Europe.The only conclusion that arises in this situation is the fact that it would be beneficial for Europe to improve relations between Russia and Ukraine so gas supplies to Europe would be resumed in full. Another question is whether it is profitable for Russia, while it is strengthening the partnership with Turkey, Greece and China.Analysts of the New York Times are discussing the advisability of talks on Iran's nuclear program, in an article called "Curtail Iran and Win"In recent years, despite attempts by Iran and Western powers to agree on a mutually beneficial basis for an agreement on its nuclear program, all parties are beginning to understand that it will be very difficult. It is necessary to find out what is the cause for the mood swings.US foreign policy over the last year has ceased to expand the scope of its influence to the whole world so that there is virtually no country whose problems America is not trying to solve. As for Iran, in this case, the United States needs to make sure that in this country there is no more powerful weapons than in the US itselfWith sanctions they are trying to bring Iran to its knees, but the American political elite does not understand that they are pushing the entire world community to the abyss by this method, causing confusion and the disapproval of many countries. Traditional US policy is by all possible ways to cause conflict within the country, and thus destroy it, without participating in the confrontation. However, with Iran, this scheme does not work.After two years of subordination, the leader of Iran took over all obligations to address the problems associated with the nuclear program of the country, but only with measures that will benefit primarily Ira

In turn, the leader of Ukraine was unhappy with the decisions in Minsk.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed the results of the negotiations. Of course, along with the fact that Ukraine was guaranteed sovereignty and independence, the fact that further sanctions imposed would not be quite satisfying with Germany, leaders of which have realized that if not the first, but the subsequent impacts on the economy will be imposed on Europe.


It's pretty clear that the Minsk talks are not the last on the way to peace in Ukraine, but it is clear that Russia will not sacrifice its principles and thereby strengthen its position in the world, despite all the obstacles from other world powers


Another American newspaper The New York Times reflects on the issue of gas supplies to Europe in the article "Even With Turkish Stream, Russia Can't Avoid Sending Gas via Ukraine".The European Union is very concerned by the fact that in 2019 is the deadline for the contract for the transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine.

Europe and Ukraine are trying to reduce their demand for Russian gas. However, for a while they are failing to do so. At the same time, Russia is discovering more and more markets for their products, and that upsets Europe.
The only conclusion that arises in this situation is the fact that it would be beneficial for Europe to improve relations between Russia and Ukraine so gas supplies to Europe would be resumed in full. Another question is whether it is profitable for Russia, while it is strengthening the partnership with Turkey, Greece and China.


Analysts of the New York Times are discussing the advisability of talks on Iran's nuclear program, in an article called "Curtail Iran and Win"In recent years, despite attempts by Iran and Western powers to agree on a mutually beneficial basis for an agreement on its nuclear program, all parties are beginning to understand that it will be very difficult. It is necessary to find out what is the cause for the mood swings.

After two years of subordination, the leader of Iran took over all obligations to address the problems associated with the nuclear program of the country, but only with measures that will benefit primarily Iran.
