LIVE: A View from Afar – Regional Disputes on the Increase: Turkey-Greece + China-Taiwan

Article sponsored by

Hi I’m Selwyn Manning and you are watching… A View from Afar.

Today we examine how a dispute between Turkey and Greece has its parallel in South East Asia with hostilities intensifying between China and Taiwan.

It appears both disputes have origins in forcible partitions, and, of course, a battle to control exploitable mineral resources.

How can these two disputes be resolved? What impact are the disputes having on regional and global security?

With respect to Turkey and Greece, can NATO effectively intervene? And with regard to China and Taiwan, can any other global body assist these two states, these two economies, to consider rapprochement?

To discuss these issues we are joined by political scientist, and former US Pentagon analyst, Paul Buchanan.
