With the Trump presidency, relations between Russia and the US have become a great unknown for Europe and the world, but a huge opportunity too. Europe and the world await the results of the Trump-Putin meeting that is supposed to take place in the months to come. There are plenty of challenges on the table, and perhaps Trump’s hyper-realist attitude will contribute to making some sort of settlement between the United States and Russia possible, resulting in a substantial improvement in relations between the two countries and of international relations in Europe and in the world as a whole. In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Gregorio Baggiani points out and discusses the actual possibilities of finding a difficult compromise between the parties and the obstacles that could come in the way of a possible agreement. The article focuses on the various regional scenarios that characterize bilateral relations between the US and Russia.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari wrote to India’s newly elected President Pranab Mukherjee that it was imperative that their two countries endeavoured to promote stability, peace and prosperity in the region and sought peaceful resolution of all issues through dialoge.
