Is Modi joining the Indo-Pacific containment of China, or not?


An informal India-China summit between the two leaders was held on April 27-28, 2018. Although it did not capture much attention of the Western mainstream media, it has signified a decisive, if not yet a U-turn, change to the India-China relationship. Let us have a quick look at the background. Firstly, a 73-day military standoff … Continue reading

One of the reasons for the India-China discomfort


The Economic Times, the leading Indian daily newspaper in English with a readership of over 800,000, published an article stipulating “three key reasons why India and China must not go to war at a time like this” on Sep 12. “Moving away from ‘assaulting with stones’ to ‘building with BRICS’ could be the new mantra … Continue reading

Is China still the global manufacturing hub?


Activity in China’s manufacturing industry has been shrinking at a quick pace in the last four years, missing also the market expectations in the last news reported on January. The official purchasing managers’ index (PMI) registered a weak level of 49.4 in January, compared with the previous month’s 49.7 and below the 50-point mark that … Continue reading

Rising India is vital to allied hopes to contain China


With Australia firmly in the geopolitical mix, no one is publicly talking about China and containment, but all strategies are going in that direction. A recent cover of India Today magazine has Prime Minister Narendra Modi dressed up as Superman, fist outstretched, flying around the planet and restoring his country to its rightful position as … Continue reading

China wants great power without great responsibility


Forty-three years after Richard Nixon made his famous visit to China, that country has seemingly decided to take a page from the former U.S. president’s Treasury Department. As China lowers the value of the yuan, the country’s economic policy makers are mimicking the blasé attitude of Nixon-era Treasury chief John Connally, who dismissed international complaints … Continue reading

Baby gender inequality set to improve in India and China


The simple selfie stick is turning into a wand of prophetic political propensities due to untiring efforts of its major user…the present Prime Minister of India. In his latest social message to his country people, Narendra Modi, urged parents to post selfies with their daughters. This advice was to give political and social mileage to … Continue reading

The Chinese ‘century’ is already over


Last Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry completed a two-day trip to Beijing. The day before, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi wrapped up his three-day visit to Xian, Shanghai, and Beijing. Everyone, it seems, is going to China, implicitly acknowledging that this is indeed its century. In reality, however, the period of Chinese primacy, … Continue reading

India and China- A hope for the future


The India–China relationship has always been troubled, but the visuals of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to China were certainly heartwarming. President Xi returned Mr Modi’s gesture of breaking the protocol to receive him. That aside, 24 deals were signed between the sides. The visit did turn out to be ‘successful’ considering the fact that deals … Continue reading

India plays soft power game in China’s backyard


To those who wonder why Narendra Modi, India’s prime minister, was in distant Mongolia this week trying his hand at archery, playing a traditional fiddle and receiving the gift of a racehorse called Kanthaka (after Buddha’s mount), the short answer is: China. Just as a resurgent China fears containment and encirclement by the US and … Continue reading

United States succeeds in pitting India against China


Some people regard the territorial disputes between India and China as a major issue to exploit in pitting India against China. In fact, the disputed areas give neither China nor India advantage to attack the other as their geological layout facilitates defence. The two countries deploy heavily armed troops there for defence instead of attack. … Continue reading

Modi to visit China for peaceful solution of border dispute


Last September, Chinese President Xi Jinping conducted his peace offensive at India by promising $30 billion in investment and raising the prospects of growth of trade between China and India. Xi has been conducting such peace offensives all over the world. One of his two major offensives is the establishment of the Free Trade Area … Continue reading

As Obama visits, signs that India is pushing back against China


When Sri Lanka unexpectedly turfed out President Mahinda Rajapaksa in an election this month, it was the biggest setback in decades for China’s expansion into South Asia – and a remarkable diplomatic victory for India. Despite New Delhi’s protestations, diplomats and politicians in the region say India played a role in organising the opposition against … Continue reading

China seeks to expand free trade area to South Asia in quest to dominate all Asia


Geologically, the Himalayas are regarded as the boundary of South Asia. As China lies to the north of the Himalayas, it is certainly not a part of South Asia and it has never claimed that in history. However, a Reuter’s report says that China is very interested in having its status raised from “observer” in … Continue reading

Mao: A Chinese madman’s legacy of enmity


India and China are both peace-loving nations. They do not like the use of force and have never had the ambition to conquer the world. According to well-known scholars, that is the reason why, unlike Egypt, Babylon and others, their old civilisations have been able to survive for thousands of years. Now, there is constant … Continue reading

India and China’s pragmatism to challenge U.S. superpower status


When Narendra Modi greeted Xi Jinping with the idea of “INCH (India and China) towards MILES (Millennium of Exceptional Synergy)” [Note 1], the new age of “pragmatism”-based multi-polarity has taken another great step to replace the fading age of liberalism-based dominance by the United States. In terms of military might, innovation capability, financial market leverage, … Continue reading

China working hard to woo India; Russia sees chance for new cold war with America


Chinese President Xi Jinping is showing China’s goodwill in India, especially China’s desire to resolve its border dispute with India peacefully and maintain peace along the disputed border so the dispute can be solved. Russia wants a Russia-China-India alliance to counter the U.S. It seems that there is no way to form such an alliance … Continue reading

Chinese army incursion into India’s territory


The fresh transgression by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in Ladakh‘s Chumur that began on Thursday morning — hours before Chinese President Xi Jinping landed in India — tuned grave by late night. In terms of numbers, this is the third. One other has been on at Chumur, and one in Demchok. But going by … Continue reading

China wants a military base on Maldives in Indian Ocean


When China’s President Xi Jinping visited Indonesia last year, he raised his idea on reviving the maritime silk road running from China through Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean to Europe. His true intention may well be to obtain trade related shipping facilities along China’s trade lifelines linking the Middle East and Europe. The US … Continue reading

India being hotly courted internationally; difficult for China to woo


The US wants India to encircle China in China’s west; Japan wants India to join it in confronting China, Russia wants to have a Russia-China-India alliance while China wants to solve border disputes to improve ties with India. When Modi won the election, he said good relations with China were his priority, but the US … Continue reading

Japan and India pledge to strengthen ties as China rises


Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged an upgrade of economic and security ties with India, saying Japan would double investment and expand defense cooperation amid concerns about China’s growing influence in the region. Abe and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi at a summit meeting in Tokyo yesterday agreed to elevate ties to a special strategic and … Continue reading

China’s Xi goes to South America to break US dominance


Reuters today reported on Xi Jinping’s goal of pushing for the developing world’s rights. Reuters quote Chinese President Xi Jinping as saying in an interview with South American media, “China would try to better play the role of a responsible major power and promote the rights of the developing world.” However, Reuters says that there … Continue reading

A new power structure in Asia: India + China + Japan


India under the leadership of Narendra Modi may be able to ease the symbolic tension between China and Japan, and also rise quickly to join them to co-lead a new age of politico-economic vicissitude in East-to-South Asia in the wake of the diminishing influence from the United States. Geo-economics is the foundation of this emerging … Continue reading

India’s Modi calls for greater cooperation with China, as India aims to rival China economically


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged greater cooperation with China on Monday and said he planned to visit Beijing soon, underlining his administration’s promise to make a new beginning with the country’s giant neighbor. India and China have rapidly expanded commercial relations in recent years but political ties remain difficult, after a dispute over their … Continue reading

India’s government to promote civilian settlements along border areas claimed by China


The Narendra Modi government may not only strengthen ITBP deployment and infrastructure along the India–China border, but also promote civilian settlements in border areas. Unlike the UPA regime that was reluctant to undertake aggressive deployment of troops in stretches close to the India-China border, the Union home ministry may now go for a formal survey … Continue reading

New Indian leader will place 90,000 soldiers along border disputed with China


India is creating a mountain strike corps of 90,000 soldiers along the 2,000-mile stretch of disputed border with China. Just last year Chinese troops entered territory claimed by India, high in the Himalayas, sparking a three-week standoff. China will be a top foreign policy challenge for Narendra Modi, the incoming prime minister who won a … Continue reading

China’s isolation: Beijing has no friends


China has become a global power with extensive outreach to all continents. But it has never been so isolated. Beijing, perhaps blindsided by its military buildup and a perceived decline in U.S. military capabilities, has revived fear and loathing among several of its 14 bordering neighbours, as well as a host of offshore countries. China … Continue reading
