Today’s Choice

– Global Times: China has focused its state sector reforms on rare-earth and coal mining consolidation this year, as a three-year action plan for refashioning state-owned enterprises (SOEs) has been 70 percent completed and is destined to be basically accomplished before next year’s 20th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress, according to the state assets regulator. – China’s SOE reform plan 70% complete, full consolidation expected in 2022: official

Cambodia

– Mark Tilly, The Interpreter: While Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen has kept the artifice of democracy in the country, with local commune elections to be held next year, his rule has been defined by illustrations of just how easily he can seize an opportunity to further secure and solidify his family’s power. On 2 December the strongman gave a speech announcing that he would support his son, 44-year-old West Point graduate Hun Manet, to be his successor as leader of the Cambodia People’s Party (CPP) and to become the next leader of Cambodia. – Hun Sen’s all-encompassing rule of Cambodia

China-Hong Kong

– Global Times: Shortly after the Legislative Council election in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) concluded on Monday morning with all 90 seats elected, the Chinese central government released a white paper on Monday titled Hong Kong Democratic Progress Under the Framework of One Country, Two Systems, which stresses that there is no question that the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese government designed, created, safeguarded and pushed forward Hong Kong’s democratic system. – China issues white paper on HKSAR democracy, stresses CPC, central govt’s role as guardian of its democracy

Iran Nuclear Talks

– Amin Saikal, The Strategist: As the year draws to a close, the Persian Gulf region as a critical component of the wider Middle East remains in the throes of certain shifts towards relative stability and potential conflict. Relations between the northern and southern zones of the Gulf appear to be improving. Yet tensions between Iran and Israel and between the US and Iran are on the rise. Whether they develop into a confrontation will depend on the outcome of the Vienna negotiations to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA). – Signs of stability and potential conflict amid revived Iran nuclear talks

Russia-Ukraine-NATO

– Ian Hill, The Interpreter: Not content with sabre-rattling amid a menacing large troop build-up around Ukraine’s borders, Russia last week issued sweeping demands for legally binding new security guarantees from the United States and NATO.  If implemented, these would constitute a significant revision of post-Cold War security arrangements in Europe. – European security: Putin ups the ante with NATO

Singapore

– East Asia Forum: At this time of uncertainty, the fulcrum of geopolitical global affairs is in East Asia. While Taiwan and the Korean Peninsula might be the main flashpoints of big power strategic tension, it’s Southeast Asia that’s the frontline of non-military competition between the United States and China, and where peace will be lost or won. Singapore’s steady pair of hands are crucial to guiding the way through. – Singapore’s steady pair of hands in Southeast Asia now needed more than ever

– Michael Barr, East Asia Forum: Singapore politics appears confused, directionless and overwhelmingly defensive on nearly every front. The leadership transition — choosing the next prime minister — has dragged into its fifth year without resolution, and has now creaked to a halt that leaves Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (at 69) as a visibly tired placeholder, occupying the seat of power but not really leading. – Succession vacuum looms over Singapore politics

Sri Lanka

– Harsh V. Pant, ORF: During Sri Lankan Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa’s visit to India earlier this month, the two nations have seemingly agreed to work out a cooperation package that involves broad based engagement across sectors like food, energy, investments and offer of currency swap to address balance of payments crisis. Sri Lanka is facing an economic crisis that is increasingly becoming difficult to manage by the government. – Short-sightedness in Colombo

Sri Lanka-India

– Sathiya Moorthy, ORF: Reports that Sri Lanka’s Fisheries Minister Douglas Devananda has taken up the long-standing fishers’ issue involving neighbouring India with US Ambassador Martin K. Kelly in Colombo has consequences far beyond comprehension. Taken to the logical or illogical conclusion, it could mean that Sri Lanka, or at least Minister Devananda, is seeking to ‘internationalise’ what in every sense of the term is a bilateral matter. – Sri Lanka: ‘Internationalising’ fisheries issue with India will have consequences
