US Congress Intensifies Attacks on China

CNGUS341

In the last third of April, the US Congress once again marked itself with a series of anti-Chinese actions. We are talking about, above all (but not only), the bill with the telling title of Strategic Competition Act 2021, prepared by representatives of both parties in the US Senate, the highest legislative body. Let us note in advance the destructive role of Congress in recent US foreign…

India and Pakistan Take Steps Towards Improving Relations

GNR

First of all, let us emphasize once again that the process of defusing tensions between India and Pakistan, crucial to the situation in the Indo-Pacific region, has been “on its way” since February of this year, and it is at its very beginning. Let us also recall the de facto nuclear status of both countries, which since their independence (in the late 1940s) have been positioned…

LVR34232

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s trip to India and Pakistan during his most recent overseas tour is rather noteworthy for several important reasons. The first and probably the most important, is that the very fact of this tour, as well as the visit of Lavrov to China three weeks earlier, is another strong indication of the general shift of the focus of global political…

WNT34111

Apparently, the international Olympic movement is nearing its most serious trials since its reincarnation in the late 19th century, from 393 AD, when this religious-pagan act was prohibited by the Roman Christian emperor Theodosius 1 (“the Great”). This reincarnation itself, apparently, was considered by its initiators as one of the most important projects in the series of those…

A series of recent events involving China, Japan and India allows us to revisit the theme of the growing influence of these three leading Asian countries on the nature of developments in the Indo-Pacific region.

An important and in many ways remarkable event at the present stage of world politics were the negotiations held on March 18-19 in Anchorage, the capital of the American state of Alaska, by representative delegations of the two leading world powers.

ISLN31121

During the visit to Japan (as well as South Korea) by US Secretaries of State and Defense, the scheduled US-Japan Security Consultative Committee (2+2) meeting took place in Tokyo on March 16 of this year.
