Afghanistan Geo Political Situation End 2018- Revisted

Paper No. 6428             Dated 19-Sept-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Geopolitically, Afghanistan in end-2018 can best be characterised that it has certainly not turned out as United States second not so victorious Vietnam War despite Pakistan’s effort in collusion with China to forge a China-Pakistan-Russia Trilateral to adversely tilt the balance against the United States. United States continues to be firmly embedded in Afghanistan as resolved by US President Trump.

China's Maritime Silk Road- Strategically impacts Indo-Pacifc Security

Paper No. 6422      Dated 6-Sept-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s Maritime Silk Road projects underway in the last two years emerges as a direct strategic and military challenge to the Indo Pacific Security Template adopted by the United States, India and Japan as it aims to establish a China-dominated maritime grid spanning the maritime global commons of the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean region.

China & Pakistan in United States Crosshairs in 2018

China's Political Outreach to India 2018 Contextualised By China-US Trade War

Paper No. 6416 :           Dated 29-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s political reachout to India, markedly in 2018, needs necessarily to be analysed in the context of the increasing China-US Trade War. Chinese present reachout to India is transactional and not incorporated in China’s Grand Strategy and India would be well advised not to make things easier for China by siding with it by perceptional proximity to China against the United States.

Japan-India Special Strategic Partnership Needs Added Special Robustness

Paper No. 6414.       Dated 26-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Perceptively missing and noticeable in the last one year is that the Japan-India Special Strategic & Global Partnership is progressing routinely without the fizz that should be attendant on it by two powerful Asian giants and pillars of Asian stability. This perceptiion  arises from India positioning this ‘Vital Partnership’ in Indian prism of relations with China and Chinese sensitivities on India’s proximate strategic relations with Japan.

India's China Policy- Reset: Strategiclly inadvisable without clear bench marks:

Paper No.6409            Dated 16-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

(paper No. 6370 dated 23rd April, 2018 Revsited)

Misgivings on India’s surprise China Policy Reset in March 2018 marking a U-turn from India’s standing tall against China’s military provocations and intrusions in Dokalam analysed in the above referred Paper have largely materialised as evidenced by China’s unceasing buildup at Dkalam and repeat of Dkalam Standoff confrontation in Ladakh in end-July 2018.

South China Sea's Annexation By China and Japan's Strategic & Economic Security

Paper No. 6406                            Dated 10-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s forcible annexation of virtually the entire maritime expanse and consequent militarisation of the South China Sea in the last decade has generated grave regional and global complications. Japan as an Asian power contender with China and the nation whose strategic and economic survival is critically dependent on the sea-lanes that traverse the South China Sea gets logically drawn into South China Sea conflictual dynamics.
