US fails to drive a wedge between India and its BRICS partners

Posted by seumasach on August 6, 2016


6th August, 2016

Despite the recent US charm offensive against India, New Delhi has resisted the temptation, remaining committed to the BRICS ideal of multi-polarity. India maintains mutually beneficial relations with China, regardless of “brief bumps” in the relationship, geostrategic analyst Matthew Maavak told Sputnik.

Modi says sky’s the limit with Xi

Posted by seumasach on September 17, 2014

“Modi visualizes the development of India-China relationship as far beyond a bilateral partnership.

Indian Punchline

18th August, 2014

A lot of preparation is going into the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to India next month. It is difficult to recall such dense traffic in the run up to a high level India-China exchange. It must be the ‘Modi effect’– suffice to say, Beijing is approaching Xi’s visit with high expectations of a historic breakthrough in relations with India.

India’s ‘Look East’ policy in times of change

Posted by seumasach on August 10, 2014

“The fact of the matter is that the headlong plunge into a new level of military involvement in the Middle East (Iraq) and Eurasia (Ukraine) incapacitates the US from advancing the rebalance strategy in Asia and China is taking advantage of it. Wang’s meeting with the US secretary of state John Kerry in Myanmar yesterday gives a flavor of the Chinese confidence that the Barack Obama administration has its hands full during the remaining period of the presidency (until end-2016) and comes under compulsion to “respect China’s legitimate rights and interests” in the Asia-Pacific and to enter into a constructive engagement with China.” So much for Obama’s grand pivot to China initiative!

M.K.Bhadrakumar Indian Punchline 10th August, 2014 The frequency of high-level interaction between India and China has perceptibly increased since the new government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi took over in late May.

The Dragon spews fire at the Elephant

17th October, 2009

The surprise element was almost completely lacking. The expectation in Delhi for a while has been that sooner or later Beijing would hit out. Verbal affronts from India were becoming a daily occurrence and a nuisance for Being. Not a single day has passed for the past several months when either influential sections of the Indian strategic community or the English-language media, tied by the umbilical cord of financial patronage to the Indian establishment, failed to indulge in some vituperative attack on Chinese policies and conduct towards India.
