The meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan that was scheduled for 25 August 2014 in Islamabad has been postponed at the request of New Delhi because of the situation around Kashmir. So far there is no new date for the consultations. The Kashmir problem may become aggravated again under the influence of the changes taking place in India in connection with the change of government, and for other reasons. The new Indian cabinet’s policy, as well as that of Pakistan’s ruling circles, might push events in a positive direction, but the forces that have an interest in “rocking the boat” are maintaining their stance. Either way, the influence of global players, especially the USA and Europe, is most likely to wane.

The future of this programme is of no little significance for Russia’s national security.

South-South Cooperation: Stronger Together

  3

South-South Cooperation is a term used to denote assistance that developing countries give to one another. Developing countries are quick to point out, however, that this kind of cooperation is qualitatively different from the traditional paradigm whereby developed countries that are members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee provide assistance to poorer nations. Denis Degteryov, Ph.D. (Economics), Head of Department of the Theory and History of International Relations at Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia and Associate Professor of World Economy at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, talks to us about South-South Cooperation.
