On Tuesday, May 24, Tokyo hosted the summit of the leaders of QUAD, an informal alliance of the United States, India, Japan and Australia aimed at containing the People’s Republic of China in the Indo-Pacific region. The summit mainly focused on discussing various anti-Chinese initiatives and the Ukrainian crisis. The summit, in addition to the first persons of the QUAD states, was attended by many other statesmen. Among them was former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who left his post due to health reasons in September 2020. This February, amid the Ukrainian crisis and growing tensions between Taiwan and mainland China, Abe suggested that Tokyo consider the idea of hosting on the Japanese territory nuclear weapons.

Rebuilding the Russian-American Dialogue on Global Security

Russian-American dialogue on global security issues has been among PIR Center's priorities for many years. With the current deteriorating state of the bilateral relations, the importance of such dialogue between the two countries has been increasigly growing over the past few years, a tendency that will expectedly remain valid for many years ahead. 

In 2016, PIR Center in partnership with Centre russe d’etudes politiques (Geneva, Switzerland) and James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (Monterey, USA) renewed its efforts to promote Track 1.5 dialogue between Russia and the United States by establishing a high-level US-Russian Working Group on the NPT Review Process. In 2017, another initiative by the three institutions was launched that brought leading experts on arms control and strategic stability from the two countries to form Working Group on Strategic Stability and De-escalation in US-Russian Relations.
