    Economic Times: NSA talks doomed without necessary political groundwork

    25 August 2015.  By Sanjaya Baru, Director for Geo-Economics and Strategy The idea of a meeting between the national security advisers (NSA) of India and Pakistan, agreed to by prime ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif at their July meeting in Ufa, Russia, now appears to have been half-baked and premature. To revive the initiative, a more focused and purposeful conversation between the two PMs is required. The history of India-Pakistan relations is replete with...

    Dana H. Allin: Egon Bahr and the legacy of Ostpolitik

    20 August 2015.  Egon Bahr, the intellectual father, together with his political partner Willy Brandt, of West Germany’s Ostpolitik, has died at the age of 93.

    Mark Fitzpatrick: Iran deal leaves N. Korea alone in rogue states club

    23 July 2015.  North Korea’s rejection of an Iran-style nuclear deal, as conveyed by a Foreign Ministry spokesman on July 21, came as no surprise. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is different from Iran, he said, and its nuclear weapons programme 'is not up for bargain'. The differences are indeed vast. Whereas Iran’s official policy is to reject nuclear weapons as haram (forbidden), North Korea’s nuclear-armed status is enshrined in its constitution and...
