Pakistan, America, and extremism: The path ahead
India-Singapore Security Relations in an Evolving Asia
“Strengthening India-Afghanistan Strategic Relations in an Uncertain World” Address by H.E. Shaida Abdali, Ambassador of Afghanistan to India
For things to really change, China has to reconceive how to play its role as a major power.
These countries [across Asia] don’t want to have to choose sides [between China and the United States].
The main challenges [for China to develop a port in Pakistan], as I see them, are posed by the security risks of sustaining a large Chinese presence in Balochistan. China has demonstrated that it is highly sensitive to threats against Chinese citizens abroad, and even a small number of attacks or kidnappings could constrain the ambitions of China’s state owned enterprises operating in the area.
The title [of Donald Trump, Jr.'s speech in India, "Reshaping Indo-Pacific Ties: The New Era of Cooperation"] sure sounds like something you would hear from a diplomat. It is not illegal, but it would muddy the waters and I think make life rather difficult for those in the United States government who are being measured about how they articulate what the administration’s Indo-Pacific strategy is and will become.
