Support for secular Balochistan to hit at Pak terror - Lawrence Sellin, Pioneer
Pakistan has proved itself to be an unreliable US ally in Afghanistan and in the battle against Islamic extremism. The time is long overdue for alternative courses of action, including ramping up attacks on terrorist targets in Pakistan, a reduction in the US aid, and support for an independent, secular Balochistan as potential buffer, free of religious militancy.
Why in Pakistan, 'politicians are held accountable, but army chiefs are not' - Harsha Kakar, Mail Today

One handshake and positive meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin at the G20, however welcome, does not allow us to lapse into complacency where US-Russia relations are concerned.
Africa's terror challenge - Pioneer
The recent spate of terrorist attacks that has engulfed parts of Somalia is not an isolated event. The east African country has been at war since decades.

Trump's fake news spin on Paris climate deal - RK Pachauri, Pioneer
US President Donald Trump has announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris agreement, a decision which was widely anticipated. This move is truly unfortunate, because it completely ignores the scientific reality of climate change and the moral responsibility of the US for taking action.

France on move with cross-party vision - Makhan Saikia, Pioneer
Why has Macron won? The reasons are obvious. First of all he was completely untainted unlike Le Pen and the other two candidates, one from the hard Left— Jean-Luc Melenchon — and the other from the social conservative — Francois Fillion.
Europe constantly at war with extremism - Hiranmay Karlekar, Pioneer
However good a country’s intelligence and security establishment, it cannot prevent all terrorist attacks. This truism holds good for the horrific suicide blast in Manchester on Monday,  May 22, night, which killed at least 22 and wounded 59 persons, many in both categories being minors and children.
Getting China strategy right - Pravin Sawhney, Pioneer
India needs its Henry Kissinger who could advise US President Donald Trump that US-Sino relations need not — and should not — become a zero-sum game. In a dramatic turnaround which caught analysts by surprise, Trump moved from a confrontationist to cooperative approach with China within 100 days of assuming the presidency.
