    We begin this week’s show by talking about the implications of Poland’s $10.5 billion purchase of anti-air Patriot missiles from the US.

    Then we discuss the ongoing negotiations between Myanmar and Bangladesh over refugee repatriation. After that, we explain why Israel is volunteering to share its intelligence on Iran with Saudi Arabia. Once that's done, we explore what's behind the Chinese Ambassador to India suggesting that his country could rename and even reroute the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, popularly known as CPEC, in order to appease New Delhi. And finally, our top story of the week is the conflict reports that Daesh has carried out its first attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

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