Munich Security Conference 2020

The Munich Security Conference 2020, was held from February 14 to 16. It was attended by hundreds of senior leaders and thinkers from politics, international organizations, business and the media. Over the past 40 years the Munich Security Conference has become the most important independent forum for the exchange of views by international security policy decision-makers.

It is generally attended by about 350 senior figures from more than 70 countries around the world to engage in discussion on current and future security challenges. Mike Pompeo, Mark Esper, and Nancy Pelosi attended and spoke.

Thing were busy in the U.S. of A. in February. We had the Iowa Caucus, the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, the New Hampshire primary and the Las Vegas Democratic debate. It is no wonder that not many people were paying attention to what was going on in Munich, Germany with these and other glittering objects to watch.

Also, in all this political strum and drang, there was no mention of foreign affairs and policy. And this is happening in the country that claims to be the Leader of the Free World.

So, for those who want to catch up with what went on at the Munich Security Conference, I recommend the short piece from Brookings (see link) and, for more depth, follow its links and references.
