    This week’s program begins by explaining how Cambodia’s brinksmanship surprisingly resolved the country’s months-long border dispute with Laos.

    Then it segues to into discussing the terrorist attack earlier this week in the Burkinabe capital of Ouagadougou. After that, we take a look at the post-election unrest in Kenya and the impact that it could have on East Africa as whole. Next, we examine the conflicting reports which claimed that Saudi Arabia called upon Iraq to mediate between itself and Iran and explore why this would be a good idea if it ever materialized. And finally, our top story of the week is how the controversy surrounding Confederate monuments and their possible removal is radicalizing both sides of the political spectrum in the US.

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