Relations between India and Iran have been influenced by the US for a long time. Iran is perceived as the greatest threat to Western interests in the Middle East. The United States’ regional proxy, Israel, also considers Iran its greatest enemy in the region. Therefore, Iran has been victimized by the United States and its liberal institutions through economic sanctions…

For decades, the US dollar has dominated the global trade. This became possible after the establishment of the liberal world order. The US dollar enjoyed unparalleled dominance as the leading reserve currency of the world. The US Federal Reserve holds that 96% of international trade invoicing into the Americas, 74% in the Asia-Pacific region, and 79% in other countries was done in the US dollar…

Chittagong (Chattagram) Hill Tracts (CHT) – a home to Jumma ethnicity, have been a source of perennial upheaval in Bangladesh for years. However, the Bangladesh military has successfully neutralized the separatist militant groups in the region through Operation Dabanal – which was later re-established under the name Operation Uttaron. This insurgency in the country has helped the Bangladesh Army garner immense experience in counter-terrorism operations…

In the second half of March (i.e. a month before the actual election process begins), in the midst of the pre-election situation in India, which is monitored more or less regularly by NEO, an event occurred which unexpectedly provoked a rather loud (and negative) international reaction. Of course, the fact of holding parliamentary elections in a country whose role in the current global political processes is becoming more and more prominent cannot but be the subject of external attention.

The protracted conflict situation over Ukraine could not but affect relations between New Delhi and Kiev, which had previously been characterised by progressive and dynamic development. India, which prioritises the full development of its strategic partnership with Russia, was deeply concerned by the outbreak of armed hostilities in Ukraine and from the outset has consistently called for an end to the conflict and for the situation to be resolved exclusively by peaceful political means…

The trend in recent years and even months to talk more and more frequently and actively about the Global South as such, and about Africa in particular, may in some cases be seen as a fashionable, superficial fad, but it is not without a significant practical component. Even a cursory analysis of the dynamics of bilateral meetings and summits with an “African focus” is the most vivid illustration of the “turn to Africa”…

India is a democratic republic with a federal system and a parliamentary government. The highest legislative body is the Parliament, which consists of an upper chamber, the Rajya Sabha (Council of States, 245 deputies – 233 elected by the state legislatures and 12 appointed by the President) and a lower chamber, the Lok Sabha (House of the People, 545 deputies – 543 elected by direct vote of the population and 2 appointed by the President). Although India’s head of state is the President…

You’ll find an important Russia-India story on page 28 of the Google News results, to care about what’s really happening between the two BRICS nations. Many reading this may not know that India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Vladimir Putin on his re-election as the President of the Russian Federation and announced the deepening of a strategic partnership between the two countries. Russia and India – strategic partners – isn’t that page one New York Times stuff? Well, no…

The recent trip by Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar to South Korea and Japan, which began on March 5, represents a significant development in the political game being played out in the Indo-Pacific region. Particularly since the role of the main “local” players in the region, already very significant today, is only likely to increase with time. Not least because the regional influence of the present leading global power is set to decline, a process which the present author…

The results of the general elections held on 8 February for the lower house of the central parliament (“National Assembly”) and the assemblies of the country’s four major administrative units – Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh – have been officially announced in Pakistan. As none of the political organisations that contested the elections won a convincing majority in the new central parliament, a ruling coalition has been formed between two parties…

The Indian leadership’s foreign policy has traditionally been characterised by a multi-vector and independent foreign policy, intolerance of any external pressure or imposition of foreign recommendations and advice. New Delhi can afford such an independent foreign policy, given India’s status as a major Asian power, its claim to a certain global role and its self-confidence as the world’s third largest economy. And no major power would dare dictate its terms to India, knowing that such an action would inevitably be met with rejection…

Expanding Chinese influence across three continents through the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has perturbed its regional and global rivals, India and the United States. The Western bloc – led by the United States – launched the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor (IMEC) at the G20 summit held in New Delhi on 10th September 2023. The UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, the European Union, Italy, the United States, France, and Germany are part of this project and have signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) for building this 4800 km long trade route
