    10-11-2016

    The fact that Donald Trump was the unexpected winner of Tuesday’s vote and the notion that he is coming to office with no previous political or foreign affairs experience has led many international relations experts to express fears that he will rely too heavily on ‘gut instinct’ and his assertive approach to business; treating international relationships as “transactional” rather than in pursuit of global security.

    06-03-2017

    Over the six weeks since Donald Trump entered the White House, opinions concerning the new President’s strategy towards the GCC and Iran remain confused.  On one hand, many commentators anticipated a strong backlash from the Middle East against the new administration over Mr Trump’s apparently racist approach to barring Muslims from entering the United States.  They also expected the new President to take early steps towards fulfilling his campaign commitment to make those he had previously claimed were enjoying a “free ride” on American security guarantees, to pay for American defence undertakings.

    12-03-2017

    This Sunday, Emirates is due to inaugurate its latest service to the United States – a route from Dubai to Newark that stops over in Athens and allows passengers to join the flight at that stage – a so-called ‘fifth freedom’ service under Open Skies protocols.  Similar to the two-year-old route from Dubai to JFK Airport New York that stops over in Milan, Emirates’ competitors sense a threat as the Dubai carrier starts to eat into what are generally perceived as lucrative and jealously guarded transatlantic routes.  Today, if you are a passenger wishing to travel to New York from Athens, except during the summer months, you have no choice but to stopover in another European hub.  From Sunday, Emirates in effect launches the first, year-round, non

    The President Trump administration has clearly had enough of North Korea’s belligerent rhetoric which has continued to raise diplomatic tensions between the two countries and has included a threat to destroy the US military base on Guam. The article in the UK Times[1] quotes the US Defence Secretary, James Mattis, when he said that ‘the Trump administration warned North Korea last night (9 August) to drop its quest for a nuclear missile capable of reaching the US or face ‘the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.’ An immediate show of force was dispatched in the form of two US B-1B strategic bombers which flew close to the Korean peninsula escorted by Japanese fighter jets.   [1] https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/stop-or-we-ll-destroy-you

  • Russian interference in European politics

    15-09-2017

    Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has been using his relationship with the former chancellor, Gerhard Schroder, to gain access and influence into German politics and seems to be succeeding. The fact that Germany is opposed to the US’ proposal to arm Ukraine and its wish to ease sanctions against Russia would seem to corroborate the claims. If both Merkel and Putin are re-elected there may be a relationship reset between the two countries. The political machinations in Germany in the run up to the elections has seen a surge in popularity for the Far-Right as a result of the  switching of allegiance of the 2 million Russian-Germans from the CDU. The AFD election manifesto is using the Crimea issue, its demand to end  sanctions, and the immigrant crisis. As a result it is gai

    This week, international analysts watched closely as Abu Dhabi launched a $10 billion bond in three tranches: $3 billion over 5 years; $4 billion over 10 years; and $3 billion over 30 years.  The sale was oversubscribed three times with $30 billion offered for investment in Abu Dhabi.  Given continued strategic and political instability across the wider Middle East region and the slow pace of recovery in oil prices on world markets, the strong demand for exposure to Abu Dhabi was widely seen as the latest indicator of the role the UAE continues to play as a model of stability and economic development that other countries in the region increasingly seek to emulate.  Indeed, by coincidence, and with the kind of diplomatic gaffe that has come to be associated with Britain&rsqu

This is disputed by a number of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and Egypt, which have boycotted the country in an attempt to force it to adopt their unified approach against extremism and terrorism.[1] It also questions Qatar’s suitability and indeed credibility to lead UNESCO given the numerous problems which exist both within UNESCO and Qatar at this present time.

      On October 6, 2017, the USA partially revoked economic sanctions imposed on Sudan 20 years ago. Then, on March 28, 2018, even though Khartoum was beginning to feel its way back into the civilized world after Sudan had been virtually isolated from the global banking system and had suffered losses estimated at $50 billion, ([1]) the US Congress took observers by surprise. Congress sent a letter to the US State Department condemning the actions of the regime in Khartoum, stressing that the government of Sudan “seeks to devote power and wealth to a few loyal elites..” and called for “working towards foundational change”.([2] ) This came after the Transparency International report (2017) (3) which classified Sudan as one of the most corrupt countries on Earth. &
