Coalitions, Allies and their memberships
I do not know what lead UK to quit from the membership of Common Wealth (?) that is solely their decision and no other country can intervene or force them to change their decision. I have no right to write something opposing to their decision unless the English’s do so, that is something directly or indirectly affect their inner plans / strategies, social, economical or political or otherwise.
Yet, i like to think about it in another angle. Why a certain country / countries become or get a membership of an international organization? What were the objectives, aims and desires of the organization? What is their VISION & MISSION? I think there is no harm in analyzing such. Whether it is EU or any other organization formed to address the welfare or development of a certain region or a continent.
If UK says they are no longer responsible or they have nothing to do with what so ever happening in the countries that they formed or created, set up a kingdom of colonies that is their standard or policy and they can quit from the organization formed to address the issues or wellbeing of the former colonies now independent countries. Last time the related sessions were held in Sri Lanka and the chief guest was the Crowning Prince, Charles. If their hearts ad minds and brains say, we must quit from the organizations they or others formed or they helped supported in forming, that is their decision. Let’s take economic situation of a certain country, who has the responsibility over economic situations, economic development of a certain country? Is it a certain organization that they have become members of? Is it the relevant ministries, departments, authorities, rulers?
I always believe that no outsider can understand their situations better than the insiders. Therefore if USA or UAE or USSR or UK, India, SL decides to resign from certain duties, responsibilities, membership there should be clear, transparent reasons to do so.
And if the union, coalition, certain ally decides to discard memberships of certain members,the organization has the right to do so, considering every single factor relevant to its membership and if that is not against the rules and regulations, policies of the organization.
If a member decided to resign or leave a certain organization, what are the reasons for them to take such decisions, good to analyze? Any disappointments lead them to leave the organization? Or they themselves dissatisfied of their so far contributions to the organizational activities etc., expected targets were not met?
I think for every country economic coalitions are important if that truly helps them, support economic development of its members. What if it barricades, pull back without pushing forward. It is good if a certain organization / s decides to remove what so ever ‘limitations ‘ , prohibitions that they have stamped on certain countries, if that has nothing to do with the theory or rule of ‘conditions apply’. For example ‘the SL’s fishing Industry related matter. I have no data to say that whether the decision taken by the relevant organization / institution with regard to the said fish matter, affected inner industry or not affected. If members think that they can survive or develop without these organizations, and if they have the ability to do so, the there is no issues.
And such things also says something (not everything though) about the success rates of the organizations, about organizations’ achievements, as well. It is true that an organization cannot please every single member of an organization set up aiming at ‘development of its members’.
One thing that we mustn’t forget is that ‘cooperation’ is highly valid and important when it comes to try achieving organizational goals, objectives. It is not just that a country member can not survive or develop without getting any support from other members, members of allies or a coalition it is also about ‘helping or supporting ‘ a country , member in need of help. Such things i believe strengthen and widen the relationships between countries with regard to their social, cultural, political, economical bonds or development.
