Negotiations on the FN treaty showed progress when Mikhail Gorbachev became Soviet Secretary General in March 1985. In the fall of the same year, the Soviet Union presented a plan to balance the number of SS-20 warheads with the increasing number of medium-range allied warheads in Europe. The United States expressed interest in the Soviet proposal and the scope of the negotiations was extended in 1986 to all U.S. and Soviet medium-range missiles around the world. President Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev began to move forward with the momentum of these talks towards a comprehensive agreement on the elimination of medium-range missiles. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the FN Treaty on 8 December 1987, and the treaty entered into force on 1 June 1988. An innovative mechanism of the OPEC oil price band helped strengthen and stabilize oil prices in the early years of the decade. However, a combination of market forces, speculation and other factors changed the situation in 2004, pushed up prices and increased volatility in a well-stocked crude oil market. Oil was increasingly used as an asset class.
Prices reached a record high in mid-2008, before collapsing in the looming global financial turmoil and economic recession. OPEC has been known as part of global efforts to address the economic crisis to support the oil sector. The second and third OPEC summits in Caracas and Riyadh in 2000 and 2007 established energy market stability, sustainable development and the environment as three key themes and adopted a long-term comprehensive strategy in 2005. One country joined OPEC, another reactivated its membership and a third suspended it. In 2010, the global economy was the main risk to the oil market at the beginning of the decade, with global macroeconomic uncertainties and increased risks to the international financial system weighing on economies. The escalation of social unrest in many parts of the world has affected both supply and demand in the first half of the decade, although the market has remained relatively balanced. Prices were stable between 2011 and mid-2014, before a combination of speculation and oversupply declined in 2014. The structure of trade continued, demand continued to increase in Asian countries and contracted overall in the OECD. The global focus on multilateral environmental issues has begun to strengthen, with expectations of a new UN agreement on climate change. OPEC continued its efforts to ensure market stability and sought to intensify its dialogue and cooperation with consumers and non-OPEC producers. By mutual agreement between the heads of government, it was decided to close the border between Azerbaijan and Georgia for all means of transport from 14 March 2020 at 00:00 am in order to guarantee the safety and health of the citizens of both countries.
During this period, a corridor will be set up to allow citizens of Azerbaijan and Georgia to return to their country. Freight transport will also be permitted through a special transit corridor. (NucNet) The new agreement aims to establish a “long-term obligation” for the ARC-100 reactor project that trade implements in accordance with Section 751 (a) (C) of the Act, which states that trade “verifies the current status and compliance with an agreement on the basis of which an investigation has been suspended.” In this case, Commerce and MINATOM (ROSATOM`s predecessor) signed the agreement on 16 October 1992, subsequently amended on 11 March 1994, 3 October 1996, 7 May 1997 and 1 February 2008. Section 734 (l) provides that trade may be postponed from investigation after an agreement has been signed with a country without a market economy  limiting the volume of imports to the United States, where trade finds that such an agreement is in the public interest, that effective monitoring is feasible and that the agreement “prevents the suppression or under-pricing of domestic products by imports of the products under investigation”.
