Transcription

I think the Cold War affected the genocide, or helped some countries to act or behave in a genocide way, finish some minorities all over the world, by affiliating with one side or the other one. My great hope is that with the new world order and the collapse of the Cold War and the Communist Bloc will make the world be more effective in interfering in the countries that implement genocide against their own people or against the minorities that live. I hope there will be a new policy to reshape the world, reform some of the borders in some of the countries, especially in Middle East, in Balkan and in Caucasus area. There is a lot brutality still. The way those borders have been formed, there is some brutal governments in rule. They are doing still policies of genocide, implementing policies of genocide against their people and against the minorities that live there. If the new world order will change the borders of these countries, to make United Nations have resolutions that can protect those minorities from these governments, protect the human rights in these countries, then I think we can stop the genocide. If not, genocide will be a big threat still in the next decades coming.
