In addition, the growing threat to the liberal international order, the numerous conflicts in the Middle East – especially the deteriorating relations between the Gulf States – and political developments in the Sahel region will be discussed. Moreover, arms control issues will be a point of emphasis, in particular the tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
