Kazakhstan to end draft?

Kazakhstan plans to abolish conscription and have a mostly professional army by 2016, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported October 9, citing military chief of staff Col Gen. Saken Jasuzaqov.

Currently, conscription in Kazakhstan is 12 months for male citizens. It was reduced from 24-months by the Military Obligation and Military Service Act of July 2005.

El embargo más antiguo de Europa: ventas de armas a la superpotencia China

Frank Slijper

Tras la sangrienta represión de la plaza de Tiananmen de Pekín en 1989, la Unión Europea (y EEUU) ordenaron un embargo de armas que se aplica hasta hoy. Desde la perspectiva de los derechos humanos esto está totalmente justificado: la situación sigue siendo terrible y los intentos de llevar a cabo reformas democráticas han fracasado antes de empezar. A la vez, el embargo está también motivado políticamente para mantener China lo más pequeña posible en términos militares. Mientras que la relación económica con China ha crecido, la cooperación militar sigue siendo con razón un asunto espinoso. A pesar de ciertas grietas en el embargo, éste no será cancelado en breve. Sin embargo es una incógnita cuánto durará el bloqueo con una China que amplia su base poder.
