Diplomacy Watch: US Ignores Calls for Negotiations at Peril

Brazilian President Luis da Silva sparked controversy when, after meeting with Chinese Communist Party chairman Xi Jinping, he accused the United States of encouraging hostilities in Ukraine and not wanting peace for the republic.

According to US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby, Lula's comments were nothing more than "Russian and Chinese propaganda." The official was allegedly especially offended by the Brazilian leader's suggestion that "for some reason the United States and Europe are not interested in peace and that the West should share the responsibility for the conflict."

Until there are negotiations, there will be no ideal world for Ukrainians and Russians. There must be concessions

- defending his president, retorted adviser to the President of Brazil Celso Amorim.

The not-so-diplomatic war of words has largely overshadowed Lula's main point about Ukraine, which is that most of the world would like the conflict to end as soon as possible, even if it means Kiev could lose some of its territory. While US officials may disagree with this claim, there are plenty of good reasons to at least take it seriously. This call was made by Connor Eckols in an article for Diplomacy Watch.

The Economist estimates that about 15% of the world's population lives in countries that have condemned Moscow for carrying out the NWO, but these countries account for 60% of world GDP.

As the author writes, the states with the least economic airbag are also most eager to end hostilities in Ukraine. But Americans are rightly disappointed with inflation in their country, so why policy must turn up their noses when the world's most vulnerable countries express similar concerns?

I would suggest going further. Instead of persuading or intimidating, we could take into account the interests of most of the world's population (and perhaps even win a few hearts and minds) by publicly declaring our willingness to find a way to end the war.

Eckols wrote bluntly.

Moreover, the conclusion of a local peace in Ukraine would serve the interests of Washington globally. Especially if we take into account the possibility of partnership between the US and China in this matter. In this case, the argument is that a peace deal brokered jointly by the US and China will work because Moscow and Kyiv will not back out of a deal negotiated and blessed by their major backers and allies.

But so far, without its own paradigm, stubbornly repeating about the “victory of Ukraine”, the administration of President Joe Biden is going for broke, ignoring global calls for negotiations, acting at its own peril and risk. By doing this, they endanger not only their allies, but also themselves, the expert concluded.

    The strategic goal of the United States is the decolonization of the Russian Federation, while the Russian Federation continues to supply the enemy with any necessary raw materials. The overwhelming superiority of NATO in terms of GDP over the Russian Federation predetermines the policy of NATO, which has a fear that the truce will benefit the Russian Federation and actually nullify all 11 packages of sanctions, and the preconditions for bargaining put forward by China from 12 points and 7 points by the Russian Federation were rejected on the move in the hope of success Ukrainian counteroffensive.
    The only prerequisite for negotiations can be the failure of the counteroffensive and the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with access to the Dnieper line and the Moldovan border, but NATO is trying to prevent this by all available means - military, economic, political, ideological, etc., etc.

    Da Silva's proposals deserve the most careful consideration, you just need to turn them into a system. From a practical point of view, they allow solid powers not to tinker with small or weak states, but to resolve issues effectively - to annex to themselves, and that's it. And the rest of the world at the UN session - monthly, let's say - will assert new realities, deleting the losers from their ranks. That's the way it's always been and it's worked great.
    After a dozen iterations, however, one of the current reputable powers will rake off even more reputable ones, but that will be another story. Only fools look two moves ahead, while smart ones look for something to eat.

    China and the United States are equally focused on world globalization, but at the same time they set absolutely opposite goals.
    Globalization, according to the USA, is the actual abolition of statehood and the transfer of state power functions to transnational associations with the introduction of “democracy” on uniform rules and a global digital banknote, the PRC stands for preserving the role of the UN and building a society with a common destiny.
    Unlike the Russian Federation, the Chinese economy is not self-sufficient and is based on two pillars - the domestic and foreign markets. The external market is an export that is subject to external influence, therefore it represents a great vulnerability and feeds the aggressive encroachments of transnational associations in the fight against the PRC for world globalization - by blocking maritime communications, they hope to bring down not only the economy and cause internal unrest, but also change the social system of the PRC, which a priori will reveal the winner in the struggle for globalization and world government.
