In an unstable geopolitical environment, with the international landscape marked by growing tensions, the reformation process of the European Union after Brexit cannot ignore the way the Member States seek to relate themselves to the security and defence dimension.

76 years ago, on 25 October 1944, the Romanian Army liberated the town of Carei in the North-West of the country.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is more or less well-known and quite old and has gone through many phases.
The religious dimension of the conflict should also not be overlooked as the Armenians fought against the "Turkish" Azeri Muslims to avenge the Turks.
Much has been written about the reasons for the recent escalation of the conflict between the two countries.
