It will be a Himalayan blunder to spurn the Saudi overture toward India. The Saudis are savvy enough to separate the grain from the chaff and would know that Pakistan is not a patch on India as a world-class partner potentially. The Saudis are perfectly capable of juggling many balls in the air and can hook up with multiple guys on a regular basis, usually without them knowing.
For the last few weeks, the Turkish Press has been talking about the fate of the Uyghurs, the Turkish-speaking Muslim population of China. The political parties of the opposition, including the Kemalists, have been outdoing one another to condemn the Han repression of this minority and its religion. This effervescence […]
The geopolitical issue of South-East Europe became of very importance for the scholars, policymakers, and researchers with the question of the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire as one of the most crucial features of the beginning of the 20th century in European history.

Saudi Arabia’s strategic courting of Russian and Chinese tourists, and the joint investments that these three governments have committed to in this regard, will help to take their relations to the next step and facilitate the Kingdom’s overall diversification away from its former American patron and towards the emerging Multipolar World Order.

Armed “humanitarian” interventions are still and are going to be a reality of the present and future international relations under the umbrella of the R2P.
Civil war-torn Libya has never been closer to reunification, but it’ll now be up to Tripoli’s international backers to pressure the GNA into cutting a deal with Haftar for the sake of the entire nation, though one that might nevertheless still be difficult to reach for reasons of ego and geopolitics.
For many, the “mythical radiance” has been lost. What has taken place is the privileging of the secular account of reality. It is felt that we must win on the ground defined by secular materialism. The result is a modernized faith, even if the “facts” embraced are antique.
Norway and Poland just engaged in a tit-for-tat expulsion of one another’s consuls. Oslo ordered Polish consul Slawomir Kowalski to leave the country due to what it said were numerous complaints about his behavior being unbecoming of a diplomat, while Warsaw said that it would respond in kind in a rare […]
The passage of amendments to the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) by the Australian House of Representatives and the Senate this week was less a case of celebration than necessitous deliverance.
