Emergence of a Russian-Iranian axis 20.9.2016 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The partial ceasefire in Syria's civil war is welcome news. But it must not be allowed to obscure a dangerous new development — the emergence from the war of a Russian-Iranian military axis that could upset hopes for stability in West Asia, and for containing Russia's global ambitions, into the future. The extent of Russian-Iranian cooperation was signalled last month, when Russia used an Iranian air base to bomb targets in Syria. American officials dismissed the event as unsurprising and tactical, and some Iranian officials said Russia's access was for a "one-time antiterrorism operation." But a spokesman for Iran's foreign ministry attached the words "for now" to his announcement that the access "is finished," clearly leaving room for repetition. In fact, a Russian-Iranian bond for military cooperation is rapidly forming, based on a meeting of interests between Russians competing with the West for strategic influence throughout West Asia, and Iranian hard-liners seeking to dominate local and ...

EU in 'critical situation' after Brexit, warns Angela Merkel 16.9.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Friday that the EU faces a "critical situation", as European leaders sought to plot the bloc's post-Brexit future at a summit without Britain. The 27 leaders -- minus British Prime Minister Theresa May -- gathered at Bratislava's towering castle overlooking the River Danube, determined to respond to the challenges of mass migration, security, globalisation and a stuttering economy. The aim was to thrash out a "roadmap" of reforms during talks in the Slovak capital's towering hilltop castle, and a boat trip down the Danube. Merkel said the bloc simply had to improve, but her influence as leader of the EU's biggest economy has been undermined by her unpopular decision to open Germany's doors last year to nearly a million refugees. "We are in a critical situation. We have to show with our actions that we can get better," Merkel said as she arrived at the special summit. French President Francois Hollande, the other half of the EU's "power couple" with Merkel, was ...

India pledges $1b for Afghan projects 14.9.2016
India on Wednesday pledged an additional $1 billion (Rs 6,694 crore) for development projects in Afghanistan, even as the two nations inked an extradition treaty and two other pacts. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and visiting Afghan President M Ashraf Ghani discussed the regional situation and sent out a strong message to Pakistan, albeit without naming it. They expressed "grave concern at continued use of terrorism and violence in the region for achieving political objectives". They also noted that the use of cross-border terror for political reasons "presented the single biggest threat to peace, stability and progress in the region and beyond". Modi conveyed to Ghani "India's abiding support for a unified, sovereign, democratic, peaceful, stable and prosperous Afghanistan".
