“It is especially important for those interested in peace in Central Asia to demonstrate willingness and ability to make a sharp rebuff of any manifestations of instability. It is critical to state that opening a new front of global jihad and of global war on terrorism in Central Asia will not succeed; the countries of the region will not allow it. However, such a message can only be made convincing and effective by, first, actually realizing the entirety of the imminent danger in the region and by, secondly, using combined forces,” Associate Professor of MGIMO University of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Ivan Safranchuk.
“Those who like it hot are unlikely to be disappointed by 2015. Different scenarios are still possible as far as the actual taste of it is concerned, but the aftertaste is not in any doubt. Hot and bitter contrasts sharply with icy-cold. What kind of heritage has the year 2014 left for us? Will it be chilly old peace, or a new Cold War?” – PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov.
The head of the NTIA, Larry Strickling, has confirmed the US government’s March 2014 statement on its intention to transfer control of IANA functions to the global community of stakeholders. But, unfortunately, a clear outline of these future plans is not yet available. It is not yet known what body will monitor how well ICANN carries out its functions, or what will happen if the quality of implementation of the IANA’s function proves to be unacceptable.” – Michael Medrish, Director of the Internet Support Foundation.
