Following attentively on global changes, we are witnessing of rapid changes in geopolitics content. If in the past states and peoples were isolated, atomized, today they are under the conditions of mutual contacts, of interdependent relations. It appears the new integration groups, diversification of organizational forms, and evolution from simplistic models to more complex ones. As a result, the integration processes comprised virtually all regions and states, contributing thus to the formation of new international “matrix”. Taking into account all these aspects, we might mention that integration involves all economic and political processes, where there are created a common space of two or more states, based on the coincidence of principles, goals and national interests.
