अमेरिका और रूस फिर आए एक साथ
16 जून को जिनेवा में अमेरिका-रूस शिखर-सम्मलेन बैठक के बाद सार्वजनिक रूप से बताए गए "निष्कर्षों" के बारे में सभी जानते हैं: दोनों देशों के राजदूतों की उनके संबंधित स्टेशनों पर वापसी; उनके राजनयिक और वाणिज्यिक मिशनों में राजनयिक परिसंपत्तियों और कार्मिकों की संख्या को पुराने स्तर पर बहाल करने के बारे में दोनों देशों के विदेश मंत्रालयों में चर्चा; कैदियों की अदला-बदली पर चर्चाएं; (हथियार नियंत्रण के लिए) "रणनीतिक स्थिरता" वार्ताओं की शुरूआत; दोनों देशों से साइबर/रैनसमवेयर (फिरौती मांगने के लिए साइबर हमले) हमलों को रोकने के लिए तंत्र स्थापित करना; और आर्कटिक में सहयोग पर परामर्श।
अमेरिका की नाकामी का नतीजा
अफगानिस्तान आज जिस संकट से जूझ रहा है, वह अमेरिका और तालिबान के दोहा समझौते की नाकामी का नतीजा है। तालिबान ने कभी संघर्ष विराम नहीं किया और न ही सत्ता साझा करने की उसकी कभी मंशा रही। नतीजतन, अफगानिस्तान से अमेरिकी फौज की रवानगी के साथ उसकी हिंसा बढ़ती गई। माना जा रहा है कि अफगानिस्तान के करीब 150 जिलों पर तालिबान का कब्जा है और अपना प्रभाव बढ़ाने की जुगत में वह है। फिर भी, यह कहना गलत होगा कि आने वाले दिनों में अफगानिस्तान की नागरिक सरकार बेअसर हो जाएगी और पूरे मुल्क पर तालिबान का कब्जा हो जाएगा।

Why it is Important for Japan to hold Olympic Games 2021
Had it not been for the COVID-19 and Abe Shizo’s ill health, Tokyo Olympic 20201 would have been a crowning glory on the political career of modern Japan’s most consequential Prime Minister. Alas! That was not to be. Showcasing Japan as the world’s great ‘Soft Power’ on global scale was the dream of Abe Shinzo ever since he won at ‘Rio 2016’ the rights to organize Olympic 2020 in Tokyo. Remembering 1964, the golden 60s, Japan went ecstatic about the decision.
The Taliban on the Offensive in Afghanistan Ahead of the US Withdrawal
The foreign troops are leaving Afghanistan after twenty years of war. The US President surprised many by bringing forward the end of operation to August 31; he however, excluded nearly 650 troops for offering security for the US embassy in Kabul. Earlier in his April 13 announcement, President Biden had stated that all the troops will be pulled out of Afghanistan by the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. Recent developments in Afghanistan indicate, a resurgent Taliban is quickly filling the power vacuum that is being left behind due to pulling out of foreign troops.
