In the spring of 2021, a controversial rare earth metals mining project proposed in Greenland thrust the island's “kitchen-table economic issues” to the very center of the geopolitical stage. A snap election was called over whether to mine critical metals at the site, called Kvanefjeld—an election that resulted in a clear “no” vote from the Greenlandic people and ended decades of rule by the dominant Siumut Party. It is fair to say that this was a “No” heard round the world, ushering in a new coalition government led by the Inuit Ataqatigiit and Naleraq parties, and a new approach to self-determination and natural resource management for Greenland as it asserts its newly strategic role in the Arctic—a cold region, hotly contested.

Darrell Castle talks about the end of the unipolar world that has existed since 1991. American Foreign Policy seems to have brought about the rebirth of the cold war as the world is dividing into different camps or choosing sides in the old game of world domination politics. Transcription / Notes DANGEROUS DAYS Hello this is Darrell Castle with today's Castle Report. This is Friday June 24th in the year of our Lord 2022, and I will be talking about the end of the unipolar world that has existed since 1991. American Foreign Policy seems to have brought about the rebirth of the cold war as the world is dividing into different camps or choosing sides in this old game of world domination politics. The weapon the U.S. uses in this cold war is economic sanctions which tend to weaken the U.S. and strengthen its adversaries. A second title to this Report could be bad governance but I'm trying to be kind, so I gave it the title of the results of bad governance. The Biden Administration just announced that it is sending $1 billion more in weapons to Ukraine for 18 more Howitzers, more long-range missiles for long range rocket systems as well as Harpoon anti-ship missiles. These are weapons whose only purpose can be to strike at Russia's Black Sea fleet. The Russians seem to be intercepting and destroying much of the shipments as they cross the borders into Ukraine so less and less are effective. The weapons shipments need no further Congressional approval since congress has already signed off on $40 billion which leaves the choice of weapons with the President or those of his choosing. This brings the total to something like $56 billion and climbing so the question becomes how much is enough, $60-$70 billion perhaps. It is apparently very expensive to weaken Russia as Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin told us was the real purpose. So, we play this cold war game as we fight a losing proxy war against Russia in Ukraine while conditions here in America are deteriorating rapidly. I call that bad governance. People are suffering but this American President seems incapable of caring or even noticing. Gas prices above $5 per gallon on average nationwide. The cost of basic food necessities soaring all of which destroys real wages of the American people. Crime rates including murder are also soaring out of control, and all taken together looks very bad. The people see the 10's of billions being poured down the ratholes in Ukraine and they must be wondering what about us. Almost daily the administration seems to find new ways of provoking a nuclear confrontation with Russia. The latest is a blockade of materials through Lithuania to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad which is a small sliver of land and people between EU and NATO members Poland and Lithuania. Supplies from Russia come through rail lines and gas pipelines. Lithuania announced that it was banning rail transport of goods subject to EU sanctions which includes coal, metals, construction materials and technology, or about 50% of all goods, but not food according to the Lithuanians. The Russians demanded an immediate lift of the ban or else. Or else what? The Russian statement reads like this, “If in the near future cargo transit between the Kaliningrad region and the rest of the territory of the Russian Federation through Lithuania is not restored in full, then Russia reserves the right to take actions to protect its national interests.” The usual diplomatic protests were delivered as well as a statement that the ban was a violation of Lithuania's international legal obligations. Russia also stated that it considers the action to be “openly hostile.” The action by Lithuania to provoke a nuclear armed country with which it shares a border is a serious matter with potentially dire consequences. The Foreign Minister of Lithuania said they were simply complying with sanctions imposed by the EU, and that they were taken after consultation with the European Commission and under its guidel...

International report
Turkey in efforts to create Black Sea corridor for Ukrainian grain

International report

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 11, 2022 4:41


Turkey is at the centre of efforts to get millions of tonnes of grain from blocked Ukrainian ports onto world markets, to alleviate scarcity and curb soaring food prices. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Turkey this week for talks on the creation of a Black Sea corridor to facilitate the flow of grain. Not long ago, ships carrying Ukrainian grain to global markets were a regular sight sailing through Istanbul's Bosphorus waterway. But not anymore. With Russia's naval blockade of Ukraine – the world's fifth-largest grain supplier – prices are hitting record levels, threatening turmoil.  "In Lebanon in 2020, wheat imports were 75 percent from Ukraine," points out Yoruk Isik, a geopolitical analyst in Istanbul with the Washington-based Middle East Institute. "If you want to go buy wheat right now, you will pay lots of money, and maybe you won't even find it. So, in a country like Lebanon where there is already a financial crisis, you will have a major crisis. "A couple of years ago, pitta price in Egypt went up like 3 euro cents or something, and there were street protests. So this crisis has the potential to evolve." Appeals to respond The threat of a global food crisis is prompting some NATO countries to call for intervention. Discussions Wednesday between Lavrov and his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, focused in part on creating a Black Sea corridor to allow Ukrainian grain to access world markets.  Ankara says such a deal would avert the risk of confrontation between NATO and Russia, given Russia's strong naval presence in the Black Sea. "They have eight or ten submarines in the Black Sea and battleships," claims Mesut Casin, a Turkish Presidential advisor. "These battleships can fire cruise missiles. If they fire, what can we do? That time should be Nato Russia war; this is a big danger." How shutting Russia out of Turkish airspace will curb Moscow's influence in Middle East But Ankara talks Wednesday between the Turkish and Russian foreign ministers saw little progress in opening up a Black Sea grain corridor. A key issue remains the removal of mines protecting the Ukrainian-held port of Odesa. Lavrov speaking at a joint press conference in Ankara, said it was down to Kyiv to resolve the situation. "To solve this problem, the only thing needed is for the Ukrainians to let vessels out of their ports, either by de-mining them or by marking out safe corridors. Nothing more is required," said Lavrov. But before removing the grain, Kyiv is looking for security guarantees that Russian forces won't launch an amphibious operation against the vital port of Odesa. Lavrov pledged Russia wouldn't attack, but Ukraine's Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, dismissed the offer as "empty words."  Grain crisis 'leverage' There is skepticism over Russia's commitment to easing the grain crisis, with analysts saying Moscow could be using it as leverage. Lavrov even claimed soaring wheat prices have little to do with the Ukrainian conflict.  If Ukrainian grain remains trapped, analysts say Ankara will face growing pressure to give NATO warships access to the Black Sea through Istanbul's Bosphorus waterway, which Turkey administers under the international Montreux Convention.  "Technically and legally, the straits are closed to the warships of the two belligerents, Ukraine and Russia," said Serhat Guvenc, professor of International Relations at Kadir Has University in Istanbul. "The others, Turkey has asked them kindly not to send any warships." Turkey threatens to dash Swedish, Finnish hopes of quick NATO entry "So, at one point, Turkey will be presented with a demand either by NATO or a NATO member to send warships into the war. Turkey's options are really narrowing in the context of the Russian-Ukrainian war," continued Guvenc.  But Mustafa Aydin, president of the International Relations Council of Turkey, a research organization in Istanbul, says Turkey is determined to prevent new protagonists from entering the Black Sea and expanding the war. "It also does not want to see an escalation of the insecurity situation by bringing in new forces like the NATO forces to balance the Russians because the calculation is that that would inevitably create a more dangerous situation for all Turkish security and also for the regional security," said Aydin.  Ankara is also well aware of how much Moscow wants to keep the Bosphorus closed to NATO ships, giving Turkey powerful leverage over Russia.

With Australia's federal election results (mostly) known and a new Prime Minister and Foreign Minister sworn in, Allan and Darren examine the meaning of the election and what lies ahead for Australia in the world. As they first discussed in 2019 (episode 19), it is the practice of all government departments to prepare an “incoming government brief”: a document presented to the new (or returning) minister for each department, for the purpose of providing a descriptive overview of what the department does, and highlighting the most important issues facing that particular portfolio as the new term commences. Allan and Darren offer their own thoughts on these matters in this episode.  However, the election result itself is significant in its own right, so before discussing the path ahead for the new Labor government of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and the specific challenges facing Foreign Minister Penny Wong, Allan and Darren offer their own analysis of the result - both those factors specific to Australia but also what it might mean in a broader comparative context.  We thank Dominique Yap for helping out with audio editing today, and Rory Stenning for composing our theme music.
