  • Pakistan’s government is putting the finishing touches on plans to “provisionally” make the Gilgit-Baltistan region of disputed Kashmir part of the country, risking another high-stakes showdown with India. Pakistan’s move would feed Indian apprehensions that it might have to fight a high-altitude, two-front war against both China and Pakistan, analysts said. The region is also of key strategic importance to China.

  • The United States announced fresh sanctions and measures against entities and individuals related to Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons programs. This latest move came shortly after the Trump administration’s claim that all pre-2015 UN sanctions against Iran had been restored according to the “snapback” mechanism under UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The United States unilaterally invoked the “snapback” after its failed and isolated attempt in the UN Security Council to extend the arms embargo against Tehran.

  • Russia has begun efforts to increase his homeland’s military presence in the Far East along the border with China and the wider Asia-Pacific. Russia wants to make contingencies through sufficient military capabilities in a region which could be severely affected because of a potential conflict, mainly due to brewing tensions between the navies of the US and China.

  • After the peace agreement signed recently, Israel will propose that the UAE help promote the construction of a land pipeline between Saudi Arabia and Israel for oil and distillates for shipping from the Mediterranean coast onto Europe and North America using the existing infrastructure of the EAPC pipeline. Such plan would be cheaper and safer by bypassing the dangerous and costly Straits of Hormuz and Suez Canal shipping routes.

  • India woos Iran to keep China away from Chabahar (which connects India to Afghanistan, where India’s presence is linked to its rivalry with neighboring Pakistan). India has been worried about China gaining foothold in Chabahar, after Iran dropped New Delhi from the rail project and started negotiating a long-term deal with Beijing. The worry comes at a time of heightened tensions between India and China following a series of clashes between the two armies in the border region of Kashmir.
