The IAEA is playing an active role in assisting countries to access the many beneficial applications of nuclear science and technology in key health areas, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said to the 75th World Health Assembly (WHA), which convened in Geneva last week. In a video address to the WHA – the decision making body of the World Health Organization (WHO) – Mr Grossi re-affirmed the IAEA’s continued close cooperation with WHO in areas such as cancer, nutrition and zoonotic diseases.

  • May 30, 2022. By Rajaram Panda, VIF. Russia and China have developed a strong understanding after Russia launched its special military operation on 24 February 2022 in Ukraine. This single Russian military action has injected a huge dramatic turnaround in the diplomatic initiatives and foreign policy fronts in many countries of the world. While talks about NATO’s expansion with possible induction of Sweden and Finland have unnerved President Putin of Russia, some Scandinavian countries have already abandoned their policy of pacifism. Major powers particularly the 4-member Quad grouping have too activated their dialogue process on regional security issues. Should India Worry about Russia-China partnership post-Ukraine Crisis?

  • May 30, 2022. By Aditya Gowdara Shivamurthy, ORF. As the humanitarian situation in Sri Lanka turns grave, the people of the island state have continued to demand President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s resignation. Much of this anger against the Rajapaksas’ economic mismanagement and populist policies seems justifiable. But there is another reason for this crisis that remains less discussed within Sri Lanka, i.e., China. China, however, has conveniently shifted the blame to the borrower rather than the creditor. It has held Sri Lanka responsible for the depletion of its foreign exchange reserves and long-term economic mismanagement vis-à-vis unsustainable project proposals and borrowings.
