Indeed, the international order is wide-open to multifaceted peace and security challenges. Expeditious assimilation, industrial development, augmented trade and inclusive societal growth necessitate dogmatic stability. Hence, state influences concerning international peace and security are vital and wanted. China has established itself amongst twelve leading peace-keeping donors of the international community, besides the United Nations Security Council’s permanent memberships, presently it is the largest provider of peace-keeping troops. Particularly, Africa has witnessed China’s greater than before peace-keeping participation since 2017. Hence, over 2,400 peacekeepers of China are among seven UN peace-keeping operations in Africa including Darfur and South-Sudan. China’s offerings to UN peace-keeping operations have extended significantly through the preceding era, particularly in Africa. Thus, to conclude China’s image as an expanding influence, it’s increasing character in peace-keeping operations, and the consequences of Sino-African affairs. Thus, it desires to offer international order with a different over-all design, with the ultimate aim of maintaining peace besides growth through dynamic peace-keeping engagement in Africa.

Abstract: US Taliban Doha Accord: A Compromise This paper attempts to find out that the US peace agreement with the Taliban is a promising step, but is rife with ambiguities because the hasty peace deal reached in Doha on February 29 has undermined the Afghan government and avenged the US-Taliban's nefarious zero-sum game. It can change all that goes forward. However, it marks a significant breakthrough in the two adversaries nearly two-decade long conflict and a peaceful terrorism-free Afghanistan is the desire of everyone in the region. But the current environment in Afghanistan, in which the agreement signed, raises some questions in the minds of all strategists .Is it a compromise, or a doomed deal? All the stakeholders expressed hopes of peace returning to Afghanistan, but various dignitaries could not hide the apprehensions about the longevity of the deal as well as prospects for peace in the statements

On the other hand, parents were aware of both the positive and negative impacts of technological gadgets on their children’s socialization. Interestingly, parents found a positive relationship between excessive use of technological gadgets and virtual socialization of children. Furthermore, usage of technology has limited children’s activities inside the house, less active in community engagements and sometimes showing aggressive behavior on keeping them away from the technological gadgets. The study recommends that parents need to educate and supervise their children’s activities and limit their access to technological gadgets in order to focus on physical socialization of their children so as to reduce negative effects of technological gadgets.
