Last week's St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) solidified that America is fighting a 2 on 1 Cold War for global supremacy

For years, both Davos and Bilderberg were considered the forms in which the world's highest elite determined the future for economies and governments.  But with the re-emergence of both China and Russia from the ashes of their former empires, neither of these Western confabs can hold a candle to a new forum that hails from St. Petersburg.

Last week marked the 22nd year of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), and the 2019 version saw a major geopolitical event take place which fell under the radar for most of the media.  That is because the event that happened was the un-official, but very publicly implied partnership between Russia and China against the hegemony of the United States.

And as one of the more highly touted economic and geopolitical analysts Pepe Escobar stated, the Unipolar world is now over.

Something extraordinary began with a short walk in St. Petersburg last Friday. 
Chinese President Xi Jinping was the guest of honor of Russian President Vladimir Putin. It was Xi’s eighth trip to Russia since 2013, when he announced the New Silk Roads, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). 
In his St. Petersburg speech, Xi outlined the “comprehensive strategic partnership”. He stressed that China and Russia were both committed to green, low carbon sustainable development. He linked the expansion of BRI as “consistent with the UN agenda of sustainable development” and praised the interconnection of BRI projects with the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU). He emphasized how all that was consistent with Putin’s idea of a Great Eurasian Partnership. He praised the “synergetic effect” of BRI linked to South-South cooperation. 
And crucially, Xi stressed that China “won’t seek development to the expense of environment”; China “will implement the Paris climate agreement”; and China is “ready to share 5G technology with all partners” on the way towards a pivotal change in the model of economic growth. 
It was obvious this was slowly brewing for the past five to six years. Now the deal is in the open. The Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership is thriving; not as an allied treaty, but as a consistent road map towards Eurasia integration and the consolidation of the multipolar world. – Consortium News
Well President Trump... the ball is now in your court.  And with your European partners in the West edging ever closer to the side of Eurasia and the Pacific Rim, are President's Putin and Jinping the 'great friends' you continuously say they are?
