Abstract

“Diplomacy is the velvet glove that cloaks the fist of power.” ― Robin Hobb1 US diplomacy after 9/11 changed drastically and it is characterized by international security and its relationship with the Islamic world. On the other hand, Russian diplomacy is built on avoiding its isolation in the international arena, to compensate for the international sanctions, and to always keep the West on spikes and of course its economic and nuclear interests. Russian foreign policy in the Middle East was always reflected by its relations with the US. This should concern American foreign policy because this may destabilize its long and fruitful relationship with the Middle East. But despite their differences in the diplomatic arena sometimes their interests coincide and present opportunities for cooperation. In all of this, where does the EU stand? The EU still acts as a peaceful actor and presents a form of soft power, but is this enough or should the EU take the lead as a diplomatic actor in the region. Keywords: Diplomacy, foreign policy, US, Russia and EU
