    China’s choice: trade with North Korea or with US

    22 September 2017.  Despite Beijing’s displeasure, the latest round of US sanctions on foreign banks associated with North Korea is preferable to military options that could trigger a full-scale war, says Matthew Cottee.

    The North Korea crisis

    07 September 2017. 

    North Korea is clearly making rapid progress towards possessing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the United States mainland with a nuclear warhead. An incoherent US approach involving reckless military threats and economic pressure is not working. The Trump administration should consider diplomatic engagement with Pyongyang before its nuclear ICBM capability becomes a fait accompli.

    Chapter 8: Russia and Eurasia

    06 September 2017. 

    As neither the US nor Russia has put forward realistic proposals to address the structural problems in their relationship – despite the need for such measures in arms control and the security architecture of the post-Soviet region – the new Cold War dynamic looks set to remain in place.

    06 September 2017. 

    For many countries in the Asia-Pacific disturbed by the changing balance of power, the uncertainty generated by the advent of the Trump administration is an incentive to pursue intra-regional collaboration.
