Pakistan & China Escalate Border Tensions with India:

Paper No. 6577                             Dated 14-May-2020

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan and China have noticeably escalated tensions along the LOC and LAC with India in My 2020 whether by coordinated design or just inadvertently. In my assessment either way the timing of simultaneous escalations need probing.

United States And China’s Competing Narratives in Indo-Pacific Region:

Paper No. 6575                   Dated 9-May-2020

By Dr. Subash Kapila

United States and China have played out competing narratives in the earlier Asia Pacific ever since China emerged in October 1949 as a Communist giant monolithic State. Competing narratives of United States and China in mid-2020 have assumed hotly contentious confrontational contours in the now enlarged Indo Pacific Region.

Paper No. 6574                              Dated 9-May-2020

By Dr. Subash Kapila

The United States would not be far wrong in perceptively viewing the China-originated and China-suppression of information on the Wuhan Virus 2019 outbreak resulting in nearly 70,000 US citizens dead and US economy losing trillions of dollars as akin to the Japanese Pearl Harbour attack on United States leading to United States opening its biggest World War II offensives in Asia Pacific.

Afghanistan Misperceives China as an Honest Broker in Peace Process:

Paper No. 6554                           Dated 27-Mar-2020

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Contemporaneously, with the conflictual state of US-China relations, any speculation on emergence of China as an honest broker in Afghan peace processes in the wake of impending US Forces exit from Afghanistan is fallacious and misperceived and thus ignoring US global national security interests.

Paper No. 6552      Dated 24 - Mar- 2020
By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan
 
Fighting in Northen Myanmar between the Myanmar Armed Forces and the Arakan Army has of late intensified and the Myanmar Army despite having more than 20,000 Soldiers in the area is certainly not winning.
 

India’s Inescapable Strategic Imperative 2020- The ‘Quad’ Option

Paper No. 6551       Dated 20-Mar-2020

By Dr Subhash Kapila

India for all purposes is virtually a full-fledged and active proponent of the Indo Pacific strategic grouping ‘The QUAD’ comprising United States, Japan, Australia and India but India imparts it with muted diplomatic tones so as not to raise China’s hackles against which ‘The QUAD’ is pointedly intended at and structured for in operational concepts.
