Data hazards. Western financial firms are embracing Chinese mobile payment apps, but they allow Beijing to harvest data without resorting to illegal means, FP’s Elisabeth Braw writes.

2

Stable state? Afghanistan is careening toward becoming a failed state. In an interview with Lynne O’Donnell, Pakistan’s ambassador to Kabul advocates for engagement with the Taliban government.

Burning out. A few months ago, finding a bed in New Delhi’s COVID-19 wards was a matter of life or death. Now, the city’s empty COVID-19 wards are a sign of its resilience, Avtar Singh writes.

4

Course correction. The Biden administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal endangered vulnerable Afghans. Although much of the damage may be irreversible, it’s not too late for Washington to change course, Kelley Currie writes.

5

Nuclear smuggler. A.Q. Khan, who passed away on Oct. 10, was the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb—but he also played a key role in North Korea’s weapons program, Mike Chinoy writes.
