I do not accept the argument that that the transition period in Washington is taking longer than usual, and the real game will start soon. Nor do I think that just separating the nuclear nonproliferation agenda issues from the broader context of security agenda could help. This will just mislead all of us, whether the Korean Peninsula or the Middle East, or even the US-Russian relations are concerned because – I will repeat it again – the US-Russian nonproliferation and arms control relations are more than ever part of a more complex strategic relationship between the two countries.

But the situation is being made even worse by some informal agreements that may have been reached between these monarchies and Israel. These countries are trying to stymie Iran’s plans.

The US now faces a very difficult dilemma. On the one hand Obama declared – Assad should go. On the other - Assad is still there, he doesn’t want to leave. I think the nomination of Chuck Hagel, again, if it is confirmed by the Senate, would send a very clear signal – the US would fight diplomatically against Assad but would not be involved militarily there. And this is again a major shift of course from the Bush policies, but also from Obama policies.

Following usual rhetoric, the end of the Cold War replaced the global competition for supremacy of the two great powers and fears of a large-scale nuclear conflict between them with a new era of cooperation and consolidating efforts for enhancing international security. Even so, the acute dialogue of Russia with outside (especially Western) world on too many security issues remains troubled. As it appears now, a permanent source of disaccord constitute the differences of views on local conflicts (whether a militarized crisis like the 2008 Georgia war or a diplomatic one like the 2011 question about what action to take toward Libya and the 2012 row over Syria), as well as sharp tensions over the US/NATO missile defense plans in Europe.
