The Turkey-Russia Relationship: Why “Compartmentalization” and Not Conflict?

... includes five founding members (Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkey) and Uzbekistan since 2019. Turkey’s presence and leadership within the Turkic Council allows the country to have an institutional foothold in Central Asia to counter Russian initiatives, such as the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Eurasian Economic Union, of which Turkey is not a member. The wariness of Turkish influence in Central Asia from the Russian side is evident in Russian efforts to marginalize ...


20-year Cooperation Treaty between Iran and Russia: Bilateral Strategic Partnership or Disappointing Agreement

... multilateral diplomacy and stressed that there was still a chance to preserve it. Therefore, the 20-year agreement between Iran and Russia, according to the Iranian government, can lead to long-term Russian support for Iran, and most important is the use of Russia’s UN Security Council veto against the United States. However, it should be noted that the use of such vetoes for Russia will not be without advantages. 3. The Syrian crisis The Syrian crisis is another concern of the diplomatic leaders of Iran and Russia,...


The IX Moscow Conference on International Security

... the world must seek to commit the United States to limit its missile defense segment in Europe and the Asia Pacific immediately. Recently, Russia has emerged as a pivotal player in unifying nations and resolving global challenges collectively. Small countries in the region are looking at Russia as a ray of hope and seeking protection against the global threats imposed by the U.S. and its allies. Thus, there should be the restoration of the system under international agreements under the auspices of international law. This will pave the ...


Extending the Russia-China Friendship Treaty: To What Extent Will Isolation and Great Power Rivalry Push China and Russia Closer Together

... since the Sino-Soviet split. Despite this continued progression, there remain many potential pitfalls in the Sino-Russian relationship that may inhibit further cooperation. Despite high levels of cooperation at international institutions such as the UN, Russia and China do maintain fundamentally interest-based and independent foreign policies. The two maintain fundamentally different approaches to operating within the international system. Russia has recently thrived on operating outside of the international ...


Dynamics of Vaccine Diplomacy

... and received vaccine donations in return. In the same vein, Russia also started supplying to several countries. Many European countries have now turned to Moscow for Sputnik V. Consequently, French President Emmanuel Macron calls European nations to counter the growing Russian and Chinese vaccine diplomacy in Africa. By selling or donating vaccine doses, Russia, like China, is gaining prominence in the world. The two countries are duly filling the vacuum created by the West’s vaccine nationalism. Moreover, it is paving ...


The Law, the Rights and the Rules

... conviction, not ultimatums. The Group of Twenty, among others, is a natural platform for working out mutually acceptable agreements. It brings together the leading economies, young and old, including the G7, as well as the BRICS and its like-minded countries. Russia’s initiative to form a Greater Eurasian Partnership by coordinating the efforts of countries and organisations across the continent holds a powerful consolidating potential. Seeking to facilitate an honest conversation on the key global stability ...


The Road to Peace and Cooperation in Europe and the World

... with the European proposal to empower the UN to keep the peace and achieve other worthwhile objectives. It is within the possibility that the U.S. might accept this or, at least, join China in making a constructive counter-proposal regarding a joint EU/Russian plan for UN empowerment, which is why we must seriously consider the points made in the article entitled “Liberum veto and the monkey and the pea.” In my mind, the bottom line—and a correct point—made in that article is that neither the veto caused paralysis,...


Securely knotting Indo-Russian ties

... has been committed to acquiring S-400 missile systems from Russia, much to the United States’ displeasure. Last month, Lloyd Austin, the US Defense Secretary, visited India to discuss the $5.5 billion deal for the acquisition of missile systems from Russia. The 2017 Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) is, in fact, still there, waiting for someone to walk in its trap. In December, Lavrov clearly stated how India was part of a massive and aggressive campaign by the West. New Delhi would ...


Time to Create a Single Negotiating Cyber Forum under the UN General Assembly First Committee

... breaches of international law and agreed norms as well as failure to accept that International Humanitarian Law is also applicable to cyberspace is especially disappointing. Still, we should recognize that the recent agreement through negotiations of the UN Open Ended Working Group is a positive step forward, in spite of the global trend towards escalating tensions, especially those between Russia, China and the U.S. We have two negotiating platforms, the GGE and the OEWG. What do you think about such co-existence? We appreciate the history and the genesis of these two parallel processes, however, I should say it is now time that we combined ...


Sino-Russian Relations Are Still Not an Alliance, but They Are More Than Partnership

... joint statement by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov opposed politicization and double standards on human rights issues. How can China and Russia join hands to counter the West, e.g. via the UN Human Rights Council? Russia and China have a good and solid experience of cooperation at the UN Security Council. However, more domains should be explored and UNHRC is one of them. Human rights is an important global issue and both countries should address it via the UN. ...
