Quotes

SIPRI experts: "There is no evidence that China has any interest in armed conflict in the region"
However, Fleurant also believes that for these countries, depending exclusively on the US for security "would be a mistake, as partners are expected to 'do their part' but going it alone would also be very risky when faced with an increasingly powerful China." The US remains a central actor in the region, and this will likely remain the case for the foreseeable future, she adds
"This trend is synonymous with most regimes that have overstayed in power. When someone overstays in power, they spend more time on equipping the military because it is the only guarantee to power consolidation" Tumushabe said
Farooq Sulehria, a Pakistani journalist and researcher, has a similar view. He argues that there has never been a "real peace process between India and Pakistan. It is only 'cooling down' of emotions and tensions for a brief period of time. This has been happening since 1947" said Sulehria
