    This week's program starts off by commenting on the reports that Trump granted the CIA drone strike privileges.

    After that, we take a look at the significance of this year's trilateral military drills between the US, South Korea, and Japan. Once that's done, we analyze the importance of the stunning victory that Prime Minister Modi's BJP just scored in the Uttar Pradesh regional elections. Then, we raise awareness about the massive humanitarian crisis that's unfolding in the Horn of Africa region. And finally, our top story of the week is China's "BRICS-Plus" proposal and the reason why India's not too happy about it.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com.
