Linee strategiche (http://www.lineestrategiche.org/). Some news by The National Interest, Project-Syndicate, Limes online: 
 
Iran
 
–  Human Rights and the Iran Nuclear Talks (Ariane Tabatabai, The National Interest), The election of President Hassan Rouhani in June 2013 has led to changes in Iran few could have imagined. Yet many commentators have been quick to point out where the rate of progress leaves much to be desired. They argue that, despite Rouhani’s preelection promises to improve human rights in Iran, the country’s track record in that area has, in fact, worsened. Some have gone as far as to suggest human rights should be addressed as part of the ongoing negotiations between Tehran and the P5+1 on the future of the Iranian nuclear program.

Middle East

Saudi Arabia / Pakistan
 
– Saudi Arabia’s Pilgrimage to Pakistan (Mai Yamani, Project-Syndicate), http://www.lineestrategiche.org/news/saudi-arabias-pilgrimage-to-pakistan-mai-yamani-project-syndicate-/
 
Cyprus / Europe
 
– Cyprus: The New Key to European Energy Security? (Robbie Gramer, The National Interest). The European Union’s dithering response to Russia’s invasion of Crimea can be blamed in large part on Europe’s overdependence on Russian energy imports. In response, EU leaders met on March 21 to discuss diversifying its energy sources, including seeking natural gas supplies from the United States to supplant Russia’s grip over European energy markets. Yet Europe will also need to search its own backyard for alternate supplies given the significant time and investment it would take to establish a supply route from the United States capable of usurping Russia’s supply.

Europe

Germany
 
– German Diplomacy: Reckless or Clever? (Leon Hadar, The National Interest). Since the collapse of the Berlin War and the reunification of Germany in 1990, a lingering debate has been taking place in Berlin and in other Western capitals about the role that the Germany would or should play on the world stage in the post–Cold War era.

Eurasia
 
– Merkel, Putin and the Lessons of History (Klaus Larres, Peter Eltsov, The National Interest). On March 18, the Crimean peninsula became part of the Russian Federation. So far Russian President Putin has shrugged off global protests about his flagrant violation of international law. He has decided to simply ignore the warnings of leaders such as President Obama and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. Greeted by thousands of people on Red Square in Moscow, Putin said “Crimea and Sevastopol are returning to … their home shores, to their home port, to Russia”.

Global

For far too long, the West has harbored illusions about Vladimir Putin’s Russia – illusions that have now been shattered on the Crimean peninsula. The West could (and should) have known better: Ever since his first term in office as Russian president, Putin’s strategic objective has been to rebuild Russia’s status as a global power.
