Pakistan’s Opportunities

... thoroughly addressed and hopefully solved. Recent processes in Pakistan these days demonstrate, that Pakistan’s government is actively moving on this. The stability-instability paradigm of nuclear weapons is a crucial point - not only for Pakistan-China-India, but for the whole World’s perception of nuclear weapons. I should here like to draw parallels to China’s soon upcoming control of Taiwan (which I see is inevitable) in spite of a US armada of nuclear weapons trying to deter China from doing ...


Why India Will Never Be Part of U.S. Alliances

... potential costs for the U.S. Even if U.S.–India relations were upgraded to the level of an allied partnership, it is far from apparent that Washington would be ready to extend direct military support to New Delhi in the event of another escalation of the IndiaChina border conflict. An even less likely scenario is that the U.S. would decisively endorse India should it a military confrontation with Pakistan play out. As an example of America’s “low profile” in such matters, we could cite its extremely ...


Will the U.S. Sanction India for S-400s or Grant it Waiver?

... changing circumstances. Bilateral relations with Washington would suffer, at least for the short term, which might hamper the Quad’s efficiency and thus indirectly advance Chinese interests. Waiving the sanctions, however, would send a powerful signal to China that India is treated as an exceptional partner by the U.S. That could in turn prompt Beijing to consider the South Asian country to be an even greater threat to its security than before, since it would confirm its leadership’s suspicions that India is being ...


Post COVID-19 Strategic South Asia

... powers competition on South Asia. Regional alignments witnessed unprecedented transition in the post-Cold War era. The most prominent feature is the emergence of Indo-U.S. alliance to collaborate as strategic partners on their mutual drive to contain China. India also enjoys historic fraternity with Russia – being cold war partner – so it continues to rejoice incentives from both sides. Indo-U.S. strategic cooperation triggered by Indo-U.S. Nuclear Deal in 2005, Indian NSG’s exceptional waiver to India ...


What’s on the Agenda for Prime Minister Modi’s Trip to America?

... seems to have decided to—at the very least—tilt closer to Washington in recent years. The Quad is proof of this, as is India’s participation in that structure’s Supply Chain Resilience (SCR) initiative to diversify their supply chains away from China. Be that as it may, India might try to avoid agreeing to or doing anything too dramatic in order not to provoke China too much. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to paralyze the global economy, which completely offset Prime Minister Modi’s ambitious economic plans for his ...


The U.S. Intensifies its Asia Diplomacy

... with the U.S., it must look after American interests and protect its strategic goals. It is against Russian interests. Naturally, the gap between India and Russia may widen further. It also creates doubts about the Indian presence in the SCO, which China and Russia lead. Maybe, India is sharing the confidential issues discussed in the SCO with the U.S. The whole region needs to re-assess its policy toward India as spying for the U.S. The region is struggling for peace, stability and development, while the U.S. is contrarily ...


What Does NATO Withdrawal from Afghanistan Mean for Regional Actors?

... withdrawal. The NATO withdrawal creates significant hurdles for regional stability and a power vacuum in Central Asia. There are several players, both internal and external, who are seeking to fill the void left by the Americans and their allies. Pakistan, India, Iran, Turkey, China and Russia seem poised to play the next “ great game ” in the so-called “ graveyard of empires ”. Some of these states have a vested interest in the stability of Afghanistan to ensure regional security and foster economic interests as well ...


Dynamics of Vaccine Diplomacy

... vaccines to its neighbors and some developing countries. India sent doses to its neighbors in South Asia: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal. Due to China’s immense presence in the region, India’s vaccine diplomacy is especially notable. Last year, India confronted China in a protracted border dispute which killed 20 Indian troops in Ladakh. So, by leading vaccine distribution in South Asia, India can revamp its geopolitical position against China in the region and worldwide. For example, the country was praised ...


Towards Increasingly Complex Multipolarity: Scenario for the Future

... is pioneering a truly new model of international relations that is much more beneficial for the majority of their people than that the U.S. seeks to retain (albeit through “ Lead From Behind ” reforms) even if it still takes time to materialize; China and India must seriously consider very difficult mutual compromises in order to restore the lost trust between them, especially in the economic-financial-tech spheres, in order to ensure that BRI and the AAGC converge rather than compete, heralding the best-case ...


Assessing the Trend of the Indo-Pacific Strategy

... future, which is also an important background for the future of the Indo-Pacific strategy. This situation will stimulate the four countries to get closer, thus naturally contributing to the development of the Indo-Pacific. Among these, the change in China-India relations has a greater impact. The relations between China and the United States, Japan, and Australia have been subject to strategic tensions, so the impact of them as variables is relatively consistent. India has been abiding by its non-aligned ...
