美国和伊朗在叙利亚

普林斯顿——继美国总统奥巴马接受控制叙利亚化学武器库存的国际倡议之后,美国军事打击叙利亚的可能性已经越来越小。国际社会呼吁避免叙利亚暴力活动升级的外交压力越来越强,直接导致了此次军事行动在最后时刻调头。没有伊朗的参与根本不可能实现这一目标。

在与叙利亚外长瓦利德·穆阿利姆的联合新闻发布会上,俄罗斯外长拉夫罗夫提出了一份最初与伊朗达成一致的议案,呼吁叙利亚“将化学武器的储存点置于国际控制之下。”化学武器库存将会被销毁,同时叙利亚将全面加入国际《禁止化学武器公约》。俄伊提案的第二部分呼吁在联合国安理会主持下展开国际努力,以遏制叙利亚叛军使用化学武器。

穆阿利姆立即接受了这项提议。几小时后,联合国秘书长潘基文也表示赞同,奥巴马则表示“我热切希望能够以非军事方式解决这一问题。”

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
