The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall highlights a major milestone for the evolution and development of the NATO Organization. NATO that we see today was in fact shaped, influenced and designed by the cold war events that took place in Berlin and the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Many of the organization capabilities today can be attributed to the time and the experience of the Cold War and the Fall of the Berlin Wall (which symbolized the temporary end of the Cold War).
Today the modern world is witnessing new forms of relations between the great powers. The disputes that have broken out regarding issues such as the rule of law, corruption, democracy, security and trade are now being considered by many experts as the return of the Cold War in a new form.
The last announcement by US President Trump of the possible withdrawal of the US from the firearms and ammunition agreement between Russia and the USA is signaling a new arms race that could lead to possible conflicts and cause grave security concerns to Western countries and the world.
On the of occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall the Academy of Cultural Diplomacy in partnership with leaning international organizations will hold the Berlin NATO Conference 2019 that will bring together security experts to analyze and to raise awareness of the importance of the NATO organization and its further strengthening and development.
