NSA Doval Visits Riyadh After Imran Khan’s Meeting With Mohammed bin Salman

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is on an official visit to Riyadh to discuss bilateral regional issues with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Pakistani Prime Minister stopped in Riyadh to seek prince’s support for Pakistan’s Kashmir cause.

Importance of NSA Doval’s Riyadh visit

Imran Khan recently visited Riyadh to enlist support of the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his Kashmir policy. He’s already received positive response from China, Malaysia and Turkey. Also, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has issued a strong statement on Kashmir. In this situation, it becomes mandatory for India to play diplomacy to downplay Pakistan’s efforts.

NSA Doval is the highest emissary of PM Narendra Modi. Also, he’s instrumental in executing the government’s order or de-operationalize Article 370 of constitution in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. During his Riyadh visit, he will emphasize on the prince that Kashmir is an internal matter of India and that removal of Article 370 would bring Kashmir into the mainstream.

Why Did Trump Took Jibe At Imran Khan?

The US President Donald Trump took a jibe at Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan during a discussion on neighbors of Pakistan. Trump said that Pakistan lived with very friendly neighbors.

Imran Khan in the US

Pakistani Premier is on a state visit to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly session on September 27. He met Trump on September 23 on the sidelines of UNGA. Both the leaders were discussing world situation when Imran Khan diverted the focus to India. Trump diluted the discussion by including Afghanistan.

When Trump said Pakistan lives with friendly neighbors

A laugh broke out with Trump’s friendly neighbor remark. But it was a little bit sarcastic towards Pakistan. The political analysts see it as a sarcastic intervention to highlight the real situation of south-east Asia and especially with India and Pakistan. Imran Khan is there to attend UNGA meeting and address the world leaders on September 27.

Howdy, Modi: The World Rallied Behind India At The Houston Show

Young volunteers were seen shouting “Pakistaniyonkilaylee” while exchanging smiles and high-fives. PM Modi had just busted Pakistan without naming Imran Khan or even the country. But it was understood that Modi was talking about Pakistan.

Magic moments of the “Howdy, Modi”

  • Modi took a jibe at Pakistan’s concern over Kashmir issue instead of looking its own house and salvaging its reputation from becoming a hub for global terrorism.
  • Trump allowed Modi to bash Pakistan but asking for a standing ovation from the crowd for rallying against “radical Islamic terrorism” that goes beyond Pakistan.
  • Modi took the turn and called for a decisive war on terrorism and received another standing ovation from the audiences. He’s quick to seize the moment by linking 9/11 with 26/11. He asked that world knows where the perpetrators of the terrorist acts were hiding.
  • Neither of the two world leaders named Pakistan in their speeches but it was pretty clear to who they were referring too. While Modi gave clear hints that he’s talking about Imran Khan, Trump echoed his thoughts by saying that US knows India’s concerns with its borders.

Israel-Election-Results

Only The Tel Aviv Stock Market Celebrates Israel Election Results

Israel election results indicate formation of a Unity Government but there are mixed views on the formation and durability of a coalition between rival parties. But the country is seeing a good start with President Netanyahu inviting Kachol Levan leader Benny Gantz for talks.

Results

  • KaholLavan won 32 out of 120 Knesset seats
  • Likud captured 31 but Netanyahu’s bloc comprising of right-wing and ultra-Orthodox parties presently stands at 55 seats
  • The centre-left bloc has 56 seats

What is the likely outcome of these results?

Since no party has a majority to form a government, there are more chances of a unity government. Also, Netanyahu has already started the dialogue to come to terms with others and work together. He has invited Gantz for talks to chalk out a plan for forming a government.  

What economists have to say about government formation?

It is good news for economy because a unity government would be less susceptible to coalition demands from small parties and narrow sectoral interests of mean politicians. Economists favour a unity government because it would be able to take structural reforms and hold … Read the rest
