US-Pakistan Relations in the Shadow of Ongoing Afghan Peace Talks

    By Abdul Basit Jan. 22, 2019
    Pakistan’s influence on the Afghan Taliban is misunderstood by the US. While Pakistan retains a modicum of influence on the Taliban, it is not able to dictate terms to them. It can convince the Taliban to enter peace talks but what comes out of these talks is not in its hands.

Singapore’s Relations with China before Decolonization

Why the EU is not a Major Security Player in Southeast Asia

Taiwan Midterm Elections: Hints for the 2020 Presidential Election?

India-Pakistan Trade and the China Factor

The Kartarpur Corridor would not just provide opportunity to Sikh pilgrims to pay obeisance at one of their holiest shrines, but could also give a fillip to economic linkages between both Punjabs. China was supportive of the initiative.

Hong Kong in China: Rethinking the Hong Kong-Mainland Relationship (Part 3)

As Hong Kong orients itself towards the future, it needs to reinvigorate its collective consciousness. Its people must find the courage to admit to a new reality in its relations with the People’s Republic and find the voice to weave a new strategy and story that make sense.
