  14. 14. Pakistan-China-Russia Ties, Need of the hour  The formidable triangle between Moscow, Beijing and Islamabad has been shaped from scratch as a result of recent geopolitical shifts.

Which forced both Russia and China to look for new allies. Both Moscow and Beijing are distrusted by the West for opposing U.S. global dominance.

  18. 18. China’s goal to change world order  China & Russia were not always fond of one another, but the “enemy of my enemy is my friend” factor plays a crucial role in the developing relations between China and Russia.

  24. 24. A New Market For Russia  Pakistan, has a developing economy and requires both military equipment and energy supplies from Russia and protection from China. In that case, Russia will open a new market for its military equipment, while possibly continuing to supply weapons to India.
  25. 25. Tough Time For United States  Are we approaching new bipolar world order or the age of international order with present globalization tendencies? To a large extent, it will all depend on the U.S. and its role in tough conditions when the center of power is being scattered and no country in the world is capable of influencing international relations alone.
  26. 26. U.S Presidential Challenge 2016  It must be noted that all presidential campaigns in the U.S. share the same expression that is directed against Russia and China, while not paying any attention to the fact that the U.S. will have to adapt to the changing world order and the balance of power, especially in the coming years when the new president is elected in 2016.
