The three axes of the world to come
In the July 1. issue this year the former Italian foreign minister Gianni de Michelis explains his vision of the future world. He sees that the world will be multipolar balanced on three axes -- the Europe-Asia axis, the China-America axis and the North Atlantic axis. In his view, Europeans must not waste time in trying to convince the US that their mutual special relationship continues to be indispensable, but instead, try to establish closer relations with Asia -- China, India, but also Russia who has an essential role in the future architecture of a world.
