Globalization is a powerful force that affects the political and economic development of the world today. It has become a basic prerequisite for thinking about major international and domestic issues. The development of globalization has promoted the interconnection and dependence between different countries and regions, and contributed to the formation of international society. . But at the same time, with the development of globalization, the security threats brought about by globalization have further increased, and no country is immune to many threats to international security.
