    INSTEX : Truth or Promise?

    At the moment we are witnessing some developments in the field of INSTEX, we should say that it has been established for a long time, but we still do not see any action under its structure and regulations. In addition, when the SPP mechanism was not implemented, it was initially expected that INSTEX would be able to meet at least some of the expectations of the parties, but in practice so far it has not been successful and only remains to be negotiated. After the United States withdrew from the treaty, the survival of its members depends entirely on the international treaty and its obligations, to fulfill such obligations.

    Analyze of second referendum and the issue of British exit from The EU in aspect of British law

    The separation of Britain from the European Union is an important controversy for Britain, Europe and the whole world, which will have important legal, political and economic consequences if it is realized. The United Kingdom held a referendum in 2016 in which people voted to leave UK from the European Union, and the British government took some time to negotiate with Europe and take the necessary measures to exit from the union, until March 29, 2017, and, In the event of a delay, it will eventually complete until March 31, 2019, but so far it has not happened. Clearly, the exit from the European Union, will has serious impacts on Britain, and so far, although Britain has passed the time-limit, did not exit the union.  UK may have a new referendum on this issue.  Holding of a new referendum is an important debate, firstly, is it a legal referendum? Secondly, is it democratic? Thirdly, what should be done in the event of a conflict between the outcomes of the two legal proceedings?

    The story of Britain's departure from the European Union has become a complex puzzle for European analysts. On the other hand, there are secret and obvious attempts to hold a referendum on the withdrawal of Britain from Europe. However, some analysts believe that, if Boris Johnson is at the head of the British political and administrative equations, this issue will come about (British withdrawal from Europe). Brexit has long been a foggy point in the security, political, social, and economic equations in Britain and the United Europe.
