In the short term perspective, Brussels faces a task to develop a new strategy for Afghanistan and necessary agreements with Kabul. According to European mass media, the negotiation on the ten-year Agreement on Cooperation for Partnership and Development of the EU with the IRA is in the final stage. A discussion of the issue at the European Parliament is expected only by the end of this year. This autumn the NATO Summit in Budapest is to be held. It is expected that these activities will determine the participation of the European Union and its commitments to the reconstruction of Afghanistan.

Patriotism in the Value System of Kazakhstan: Political Analysis
Patriotism is particularly emotional experience of belonging to the country and own nationality, language and traditions. The concept of "Homeland" is formed in the mind of a person basing on a sense of belonging to the family home, town / village, a certain group of people, as well as to the system of values and ideals of the society. Patriotism assumes pride in the achievements and culture of homeland, the desire to preserve its character and cultural characteristics and identifying oneself with the other members of the people, the desire to protect the interests of the country and its people.


Ces and CA: the dynamics of economic development and cooperation
The geographical proximity of the countries of the region and the scale of integrating economies have the biggest influence on the dynamics of integration processes. Specificity of economic and political environment becomes a new factor of integration. Currently, economic and environment integration in the CIS is formed by CES countries (CU) and CA, which have different nature and extent of involvement in global and regional economic processes.
