View from abroad: In new global landscape, US and UK head for irrelevance

It is a contrast that makes life interesting. This week, contrasting priorities and the attention of the three key western capitals attracted attention.

In Washington, US Secretary of State Donald Trump dismissed most of the British people with insulting remarks about the Sadiq Khan mayor, which many people in London admire because of tragic terrorist attacks.

He faced even more serious problems, arguing that the FBI's executive director, James Comey, had argued that the White House was spreading lies about him and that he had taken inappropriate action on the UN investigation. Between Russia and the Trump Administration.

In London, Prime Minister Teresa May spoke after the terrorist attacks, but the citizens of London remained calm, stressing that human rights should be modified to deal with terrorism.

We have focused on unexpected unpredictable national elections that make the Brexit negotiations more complicated for most of the UK.

And there was Brussels. As voters in the UK voted, many of the best and most brilliant people in Brussels voted for the European Union's annual meeting of the world's most dedicated and active development experts.

In many ways, the message of more than 7,000 participants was simple in a two-day forum known as "European Development Day," which included world-class international leaders. "The world does not stop for America."

One by one, leaders emphasized their commitment to complying with the Paris Convention on Climate Change. The focus was on mobilization of the funds needed to achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And it was working for peace and security despite the odds.

Another key message in the forum was equally simple but important. Brexit can be inevitable (many people still hope to do so in Europe). But Europe does not mourn for England.

Paradoxically, as mentioned earlier in this column, Trump and Brexit gave the EU a new lease of life, a new reason for existence and a new sense of purpose.

Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the European Commission, said at the European Development Days: "Europe is the smallest continent, but it is a rich country. The richest people should be able to help others to catch up with the lucky ones in the birth lottery. Is a word in the past, not about help, it's about partnership, and now we've invested more time in partnership. "

There was a lot of backlash as the European Union adopted the strategic document "Consensus on Development" and outlined the future of European development policy in a challenging year.

The development agreement aims to combine traditional development assistance with other resources, such as development financing of innovative development forms, mobilization of private sector investment, and mobilization of additional domestic resources for development.

However, development agencies have warned that new EU policies are stopping migration and focusing too much on poverty eradication, although Juncker and others are lyrical in their role as Europe's key actors.

The fact is that the consensus is a policy wishlist that addresses a number of priorities, from empowerment of women and youth to digital development, peace and security, and migration and sustainable development.

This requires partnerships with civil society participants, not just the private sector, but also with government agencies, local authorities and women's organizations and youth.

NGOs have warned that the consensus redirects some of the development aid to help migrate, including dealing with issues such as poaching after one million refugees and "irregular" immigrants arriving in Europe in 2015. Between security and development.

Others argue, however, that security and development can not go together without progress.

Interestingly, none of the main speakers of the forum mentioned the name of Donald Trump, and Brexit seldom mentioned it.

But while the sole policy of the United States has had a positive impact on Europe as well as on Europe, it is clear that many countries think that it is important to continue to promote climate change policies and support globalization.

Brexit is the most important part of the British agenda, but other countries in the world do not worry about what will happen to the once prominent colonial power in the world.

Paradoxically, when Britain withdraws from the EU, the other 27 European countries are expected to respond more positively to the demands of the people at the national level and actively respond to the world stage.

And Trump 's misguided behavior has come to a calling for enlightenment of many countries, including the EU countries. Once I "indi" I can see that life can continue without America now. Could Washington and London be standing and influencing without losing their reputation?
