From The Editor’s Desk

It is my pleasure to present August 2022 Edition for our esteemed audience across the globe.

The world has shockingly witnessed the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who has been a major name in global politics and is given significant credit for the transformation of Japan across the decades. I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the Japanese nation and the world community in this regard.

Sri Lanka’s economy has seen a downward spiral with the island country plunging into a severe political and economic crisis, European Union has greenlighted €1 billion in aid for Ukraine, while the United States has announced a latest push in the Pacific.

Moreover, President Biden embarked on an official tour to the Middle East, starting from Israel and ending at Saudi Arabia, while Russian President Putin and Turkish President Erdogan embarked on a visit to Iran where the latest edition of the Astana Peace Summit was held. President Putin has also said that West can not isolate Russia or send it back in time.

Furthermore, there have been talks between Russian Foreign Minister and the US Secretary of State, while Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal has discussed Afghan situation with Afghan Foreign Minister Muttaqi, and Pakistan has called to action for the advancement of UN Agenda in Africa.
