It is im­por­tant to pre­serve the rules-based or­der in the West

The National - News - - OPINION -

I write in ref­er­ence to Rash­mee Roshan Lall’s ar­ti­cle Amid prepa­ra­tions for Nato’s 70th an­niver­sary sum­mit, no one seems sure about where Europe should be head­ing (Novem­ber 26): it is trou­bling to read about peo­ple ques­tion­ing the wis­dom of the for­ma­tion of or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the Euro­pean Union and Nato.

Th­ese are blocs that were cre­ated af­ter the end of the Sec­ond World War in or­der to build and pre­serve a rules-based in­ter­na­tional or­der.

Th­ese col­lab­o­ra­tions are be­ing given an­other look by present-day lead­ers with no cred­i­ble al­ter­na­tive so­lu­tions at their dis­posal. I just hope bet­ter sense pre­vails among politi­cians and or­gan­i­sa­tions like the EU and Nato are pre­served. K Ra­ga­van, Bengaluru
