During the Trump regime, the bilateral relationship between the Europe and the United States of America touched its lowest point.

Donald Trump led the US out of the Paris Climate Treaty. He even pushed the country away from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

The political transformation in the US has overturned the situation. Joe Biden, the new President of the United States of America, has led the country back to the Paris Climate Treaty, which attempts to reduce the concentration of green house gases in the atmosphere.

It is said that the new regime in the US is also trying to strengthen its commitment towards the NATO.

What the development indicates is that what is coming is a glorious period of the US-Europe relation.

It is clear that the US does not afford a strained relation with the Europe, especially when the Asian country of China is aggressively trying to increase its influence over the continent.

As against the expectation, the new US regime has heightened the conflict with China. The US has recently criticised China in connection with the South China Sea issue.

The development indicates that the US does not want the Europe to open a cordial relation with China, and it does not want Beijing to replace Washington in the Europe.

The Australian government, for the first time, has declared openly but indirectly that his government would not resist the return of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is wanted in the US for espionage.

The allegation against the journalist is that under his leadership WikiLeaks leaked several sensitive details regarding the US military.

Recently, a United Kingdom court dismissed an extradition treaty filed against the journalist by the United States.

The US has announced its plan to appeal against the UK court verdict.

The latest development indicates that the case will reach the top court of the UK, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.

Australian lawmakers recently demanded the release of the journalist.

The Austrian government is not a party of the case against the journalist in the United Kingdom court.

The pressure is high over the Australian government to interfere in the legal proceedings against the journalist in the UK.

There is a rumour that the journalist is suffering from serious mental health problems.    

Mr. Assange is the most fearless journalist the world has ever seen. He has several followers across the world. Human rights organisations have demanded the release of the journalist. It is alleged that the cases against him in the US is politically motivated.

In a dramatic development related to global politics, Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated US President-elect Joe Biden.

It is the first time that the Russian president has extended a cordial note to the Democratic leader, who defeated US President Donald Trump, who represented the Republican Party in the 2020 US Presidential Election.

Mr. Putin is known for his close attachment with Mr. Trump.

During the 2016 Presidential Election, it was alleged that the Russian government had interfered in the election to turn the election in favour of the Republican candidate.

The latest development indicates that the Russian government is trying to develop a smooth diplomatic channel between Moscow and Washington DC.

Russia is at present not in a good relation with the rest of the Europe. The latest development has a serious political implication.

It seems that Russia wants to counter the possible upgradation of the US-EU relation post the induction of the new regime with the improved relation with Mr. Biden.

Hong Kong is a part of China now. Earlier, it was a region controlled by the United Kingdom. It was the west which turned the region a true trade hub.

In the recent past, the trade hub was handed over to China. The process was backed by an agreement Beijing reached with London. The agreement assured that China would protect the democratic values and practices the hub inherited from the UK.

Unfortunately, since the transfer of the region from the UK to China, the latter has been systematically dismantling every thing the region inherited, including the democratic values and practices.

The action, naturally, has received serious resistance. The city has witnessed numerous protests against China’s aggression.

As part of China’s strategy, it has recently imposed some laws to suppress those who have voiced their disagreement against the Chinese action.

China last week dismissed the law-making body of Hong Kong.

It seems that the Hong Kong issue has struck a peak point. The west, especially the United Kingdom and the United States, has openly criticised the Chinese policy. It has sent an ultimatum to the Communist Country of China to withdraw its anti-democratic actions.

It is yet to be seen how the things will evolve. China has not yet commented about the new development.
