SINGAPORE: The implications of the Ukraine war, a possible escalation in the Taiwan Straits and the overall security in the Indo-Pacific were the main topics that dominated the Shangri-La Dialogue, Asia’s premier defence summit organised annually in Singapore by the International Institute for Strategic Sudies (IISS), a London-based think tank. Another key focus area was the need for strategic rivals China and the United States to keep channels of communication open at all times so that any misunderstanding doesn’t snowball into a conflict. In this edition of ‘Simply Nitin”, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, who is attending the summit, gives a sense of what’s happening there.
