The Washington D.C. Summit on Cross Continental Cooperation
"Future Prospects in International and Intercultural Relations to Enhancing Cross & Trans Continental Cooperation"
Summit OverviewThe recent deterioration of US-Russian relations was made more evident by President Obama's decision to cancel an official meeting with President Putin and by the tense negotiations on the Syrian Crises. These events highlight an urgent need for the International Community to take action to enhance cross-continental cooperation.
This current situation between Russia and the US clearly defines the significant differences of opinion on policies between the world's most influential leaders, thus making it evident that appropriate measures must be taken globally in order to ensure that further development of international inter-connectivity remains secured and sustainable.
