In Latin America, Russia and China Push New World Order
The New American August 1, 2014
Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping visited Latin America this month to push a new "international order" and boost relations between their regimes and the region’s totalitarian-minded rulers, signing huge deals with their counterparts in the Western Hemisphere on everything from trade and economic cooperation to military issues and espionage. According to analysts, the official Sino-Russo trips to the region highlight the fast-shifting geopolitical scene, with the world being shepherded in controlled fashion toward a new, “multi-polar” world order featuring a neutered United States and more unaccountable “global governance.”
From the start, Putin emphasized the agenda behind his trip. “We are interested in strong, economically stable and politically independent, united Latin America that is becoming an important part of the emerging polycentric world order,” he said. On the domestic front, Putin touted his emerging “Eurasian Economic Union,” a misnamed “trade” bloc bringing together several “former” Soviet regimes. In Latin America, the ex-KGB figure touted similar integration schemes — particularly the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which includes all governments in the Americas except the United States and Canada.
It is not just CELAC, founded in recent years by Latin American socialists with strong Sino-Russo support as a “counterweight” to U.S. “imperialism,” that Putin is interested in. In fact, the Russian strongman said Moscow is “open to substantive interaction with all integration formations in the Latin American region.” That would include the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), the Common Market of the South (Mercosur), the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), the Pacific Alliance, the Central American Integration System (SICA), and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Putin said in Havana.
