SCO Dushanbe Summit and Asian Politics

Founded in 2001, the SCO is covering about three-fifths of the Eurasia land mass and accounting for 14.9 percent of the global economic output. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit held from Sept. 11 to 12 focused on issues of anti-terrorism and regional security and saw the signing of the Dushanbe Declaration. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) groups Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. It also has Afghanistan, India, Iran, Mongolia and Pakistan as its observers, and Belarus, Turkey and Sri Lanka as dialogue partners.

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (II)

The intellectual challenge today lies in reinterpreting the idea of non-alignment in tune with the spirit of our times, which is characterized by multipolarity in international politics, so as to meet India’s needs in the coming period as an emerging power. That is also what Jawaharlal Nehru would have expected Prime Minister Modi to do as his worthy successor presiding over India’s tryst with destiny at a crucial juncture in world politics. All things considered, therefore, India’s SCO membership would signify that the Modi government is charioting India toward a new world order where the country’s political and diplomatic options will multiply.

Russia, China: Predictable Relationship

Russian President Putin is going to China. The news is like a gulp of fresh air in the suffocating atmosphere of Kiev with its burnt tires and repressions against dissidents. The tour is a positive step forward with bright prospects for future built on solid basis. This is a turning point in history. Russia is being dragged by the West into another cold war and is subject to unprecedented pressure with clear intentions to subvert it. It’s not just a collision of interests – the system of values is undermined, the very right of people and states for self-determination is scorned...

Will Afghanistan Follow Syria’s Scenario?

With ISAF to leave Afghanistan in 2014, the Taliban exercising control over large portions of the country against the backdrop of raging civil war is quite a probable scenario... Mullah Omar controls military operations in southern Afghanistan, specifically in the Helmand, Zabul, and Kandahar provinces... The executive leadership, known as the Quetta Shura Taliban (QST), is reportedly based out of Quetta, Pakistan. Taliban Commander Gulbuddin Hekmatyar controls military operations in much of northern Afghanistan, mainly in the Kunduz, Baghlan, Kunar, Kipsa, and Laghman provinces. Though not officially part of the Taliban, the Haqqani Network operates Taliban operatives in the regions around Kabul...

World Balance Reshaped

The United States has a custom of putting the countries, which have fallen out of its favor, on the “rogue states” list. Now it risks itself to be subject to international isolation.  The Washington’s world political center status is being lost, the Obama’s policy on Syria has happened to be short-sighted and strategically wrong. The America’s game with “foes of convenience” like Syria and Iran, has failed.  Nobody wants to join the United States in their fight against these states and the US claim to Middle East domination is being rejected more resolutely…

SCO: Security Challenges Dominate Agenda

While the 2013 Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit in Bishkek is getting closer, the Kyrgyz Republic, the host country, has launched a number of high-level meetings for preliminary consideration of the issues on the list, especially the ones related to security... The SCO has an important role to play here by gradually involving the war-torn country into the international cooperation process... The forthcoming summit in Bishkek in September 2013 will be an occurrence of great importance taking decisions of not only regional, but rather global dimension...

ISAF Afghan Pull Out and Security Concerns

Russia has voiced concern over the security threats increasing following the planned withdrawal of most US-led foreign combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. On May 8 the President of Russia said at the Security Council meeting that U.S. and NATO-led forces «have not yet achieved a breakthrough in the fight against terrorist and radical groups» and that these groups have become more active recently... The President further pointed out that «international forces have done practically nothing to root out drug production in Afghanistan» and ignored Russian proposals for more efforts to eradicate crops of poppies used to make heroin. As a result «there is every reason to believe that in the near future we may face a worsening of the situation»...

The SCO 2012 Shanghai Summit – on the Way to New World Order

The 12 th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit took place in Beijing on June 6-7, 2012. The annual event brought together the heads of states to review and gauge the importance of the SCO in global affairs... The main summit result is that the SCO has significantly varied and deepened the cooperation process in all fields and enhanced its international clout. It’s a win-win result for those who oppose a unipolar vision of the contemporary world.

Shanghai Cooperation Organization Trapped in Identity Searches

The US military presence in Afghanistan and Central Asia bears an increasingly corrosive effect on wider Eurasian stability... At the moment virtually every small country in Eurasia, from Kazakhstan to Georgia, is more of a pawn than of a player on the chessboard of global politics and has to adapt to the strategies pursued by more powerful trendsetters. It must be bluntly taken into account that only two countries – Russia and China – can be regarded as such in the post-Soviet Central Asia.

US – Pakistan Dispute Exacerbated. What Now?

The US-Pakistan relationship steadily going for the worse is an issue that hits the radar screen of world media outlets... The Shamsi Air Base incident exacerbated the situation to the boiling point... Pakistan has vowed to close permanently the U.S.-NATO logistics routes through which a major part of supplies needed for the Afghanistan war effort must be transported... The deployment of air-defense systems along the border with Afghanistan to counter US air strikes is an intention declared... The USA responded by withholding about $800 million in aid to Pakistan's armed forces... What now?.. Russia has threatened to cut off the NATO supply routes to Afghanistan if there is no deal on the missile defense in Europe...

It’s Up to Germans to Decide if They Need War in Europe

The geopolitical project of creating independent Ukraine in order to destroy the Russian statehood was not a brainchild of US strategists. The idea belonged to German ideologists. No need to fall prey to illusions, it should be understood that the people who take foreign policy decisions in Berlin today are hardly ready for a compromise with Russia on Ukraine... Czar Alexander III probably had a reason to turn to the wall the picture of German Emperor, who was his uncle, while calling Iron Chancellor Otto von Bismarck «ober-swine». No matter that, the great German politician cared about the fate of his people. That’s what a wise foreign policy is about. Germans themselves should decide if they want a war in Europe. They should think about it and not forget that the United States pursues its own goals...
