International Press Brief

Putin and Constitutional Reform in Russia

On 15 January, during his speech to the Nation, Vladimir Putin announced a constitutional reform that will give Parliament more powers and promote the Council of State of an advisory body to the Constitutional body. Dmitry Medvedev's government immediately resigned and the chief of the Tax Authority, Michail Mishustin, was appointed Prime Minister. The mention, during the speech, to an end of the limitation "maximum of two terms in a row" in the Presidency launched the debate on the political future of the Russian President.

United States - Iran Tensions

The death of General Soleimani, commander of the Quds unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, in Iraq by order of the American President, increased the level of tension between the two countries and across the Middle East. In retaliation, Iran announced that it would remove limits on enriching uranium and launched a missile battery against U.S. bases in Iraq. On the other hand, fearing a new conflict on national territory, the Iraqi Parliament has called all foreign forces to leave the country.

Turkish military operation in Syria

After the US withdrawal from northern Syria, Turkey has launched a military operation in the against the Syrian Democratic Forces, with fighter from the Kurdish YPG, long-standing allies of the United States. Suffering heavy casualties and lost territory, the Kurds are now negotiating support with Assad and Putin. What will be the impact of this new escalation in the Syrian conflict for Europe, the United States, and upon political and security dynamics in the Middle East?
