AUKUS partnership’s nuclear submarine deal destabilizes the Indo-Pacific region and serves no one’s interest — least of all France, which was stabbed in the back. Will the vessels ever be delivered as promised? Washington couldn’t care less. It’s all about money and American jobs.

A fundamental shift in thinking is needed under which inspections become an interactive, two-way process. The accusatory hunt for a presumed cheater that has been used in the past needs to change. What's needed is a process that builds trust and provides incentives for cooperation.

U.S. return to the Iran nuclear deal could be difficult. Much has changed in the world in the past four years, including the recent assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist. China’s help may be needed more than ever.

Any resolution of the nuclear issue must start with the recognition of the DPRK’s deep concerns. While the six-party talks have not yet resumed and risks remain, China will remain critical to the future outcome.

With China, Russia and the U.S. all developing major space programs, trilateral accords and communication will be key to avoiding misunderstandings – or war – between nations.
