伊斯坦布尔峰会后的北约

过去的一周里,北约26个成员国的国家政府首脑会聚伊斯坦布尔,召开了重要峰会。这次峰会选择在这座连接两个大陆的城市召开是最恰当不过的。在伊斯坦布尔,不仅泛大西洋各国的重要联系均有所加强,与其它地区的合作桥梁也得以建立。在对伊政策产生分歧之后,本届峰会体现了泛大西洋安全合作的最新力量,加强了北约在合作中所起的主导作用,这在峰会做出的重要决策中有着明确的体现。

首先来看阿富汗问题。伊斯坦布尔会议上,北约决意扩充驻阿富汗的稳定力量。我们将增派人员充实驻阿省区重建小组,支持中央政府权力的拓展,加速发展和重建的步伐。我们还将加大对临近选举的支持力度,因为选举结果对确保阿富汗长期稳定与和平,防止该国再次沦为恐怖分子的庇护所有着至关重要的意义。

其次是伊拉克问题。应伊亚德·阿拉维总理的邀请,北约决定为伊安全部队的训练提供帮助。除了继续支持波兰对多国分治的领导,北约还将在协助伊拉克战后重建中发挥重要作用。在向伊拉克新政府进行权力移交之际做出这项决定,更加显示了它的重要。北约盟国都毫不犹豫地承认伊拉克稳定符合各自共同的利益,而北约在争取稳定的过程中应发挥自己的作用。军队的训练在伊拉克稳定中起着关键的作用,而北约在这方面有着宝贵的经验和技能。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
