The 2018 midterm election results were truly a verdict on his presidency than anything else.

The Unthinkable: are Arab-Israel ties going to be normalized in 2019?

In August, 2017, Mubarak Al-Fadil Al-Mahdi, the Sudanese minister for investment, caused an uproar in the Arab world - and beyond – when he said, “Normalization of ties between Israel and Sudan is no big deal,“ while adding that the relationship with the two nations must be based on the interests of Sudan and not the emotions involving Palestinian cause, in the same breath.

Letter From America - World Disorder: Reform at the UN needed

The United Nations Organization, like the League of Nations before, was conceived for the noble purpose of ending wars between nations. Yet, we have witnessed, almost non-stop, one war after another. Since the end of the Second World War in 1945 there have been some 250 major wars in which over 50 million people have been killed, tens of millions made homeless, and countless millions injured and bereaved.

Nepal - China Abracadabra

Nepal and China entered into a Transit and Transportation Protocol (TTP) almost a month back but it has failed to generate much enthusiasm amongst traders, importers and exporters and the business community at large in Kathmandu.

Through the haze, a better democracy

Although you wouldn’t know it from the rhetoric and actions of the Trump Administration, the U.S. is part of the global society. And while most of the U.S. was focused on a Supreme Court nomination that shook our democratic institutions, a watershed moment for democracy quietly took place half a world away. For those in the U.S. seeking evidence that a truer democracy can be realized, recent developments in the advancement of the World Health Organization's (WHO) global tobacco treaty offer much needed hope.
