ब्राजील : तूफान की निगाहों में
दक्षिण अमेरिका का सबसे बड़ा एवं सबसे अधिक ताकतवर देश ब्राजील इस सदी के संभवतः सबसे गंभीर संकट का सामना कर रहा है। हालांकि वैश्विक महामारी कोविड-19 ने ब्राजील पर भी उसी तरह कहर ढ़ाया है, जैसा उसने अन्य तमाम विकासशील देशों को तबाह किया है। लेकिन महामारी के बाद के असर ने ब्राजील में उथल-पुथल ला दिया है। एक अनुमान है कि 5,68,000 लाख से भी अधिक ब्राजीलवासी महामारी के सुनामी के सबसे गंभीर रूप से पीड़ित हुए हैं। लेकिन वे इस समस्या को निबटने में ब्राजील सरकार की निर्णयों (या इनकी कमी के चलते) से भी आंशिक रूप से दुष्प्रभावित हुए हैं। दरअसल, महामारी से निबटने के लिए कारगर दूरगामी कदम उठाने को लेकर सरकार
Japan shall have a new Prime Minister in Fumio Kishida
Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) picked its new leader in a poll on 29 September who shall be sworn in as Japan’s 100th Prime Minister when Parliament convenes on 4 October. Since the LDP has a majority in both the Lower and Upper Houses, going through the Diet process is all but a formality. The winning candidate is the former Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.
Profound Transformation in China in the “NEW ERA”
In a surprising statement, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman on 22 September 2021 stated that the “…Galwan incident took place because India violated all signed agreements and treaties and encroached upon Chinese territory and illegally crossed the Line,” an allegation suitably responded to by MEA Spokesman. The entire schema in 2020 was Chinese deliberate, well-planned, premeditated belligerence. It included mobilisation of two divisions in Aksai Chin and retaining them, the multiple points on intrusions in Eastern Ladakh, and refusal to return to status quo positions.
Using AUKUS to Brazen it Out
The United States’ and the United Kingdom’s overtures to Australia to help it acquire a fleet of nuclear-powered general-purpose attack submarines (SSNs) infuse a perilous complexity into the strategic Indo-Pacific environment, rendering it more difficult to denuclearise the region.
तालिबान की जीत: क्षेत्र पर उसका असर
अफगानिस्तान में 1990 के दशक में तालिबान ने रब्बानी सरकार को काबुल से हटा कर सत्ता पर कब्जा किया था। तब यह एक धीमी कवायद थी; वे देश के उत्तरी हिस्से पर दखल नहीं कर सके थे, लिहाजा, वह क्षेत्र नार्दर्न एलाइंस के अधीन ही बना रहा था। इस बार उन्हें पहले के बनिस्बत थोड़ी अधिक जीत मिली है। हालांकि पंजशीर घाटी अब भी उनके प्रभावी नियंत्रण से दूर है, पर उन्होंने बाकी देश को जीत लिया है। इस बार यह देखा जा रहा है कि तालिबानी बच-बच के बयान दे रहे हैं। अलबत्ता, उन्होंने साफ कर दिया है कि वे इस्लामिक अमीरात की स्थापना के प्रति प्रतिबद्ध हैं। इस बिना पर कहा जा सकता है कि अफगानिस्तान में सिर्फ हुकूमत ही नहीं बद

Evolution of Indo-US Relations: From Estranged Democracies to Engaged Democracies
From being what Dennis Kux, the US diplomat and author, called ‘estranged democracies’, India –U.S.A relationship has been transformed to ‘Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s current visit to USA is certainly going to scale up the relationship between the two countries. After the outbreak of COVID-19, it is for the second time that Prime Minister Modi is visiting a foreign country in person; earlier he visited Bangladesh to participate in the Independence Day of Bangladesh coinciding with the birth centenary of Mujibur Rahman.
