India, Pakistan Choose to Remain Disengaged

It is a familiar sight when India-Pakistan interactions raise hopes but only to end up as damp squib. In fact, that is a well-established pattern, and the bleached landscape is littered with carcasses of India-Pakistan summit meetings...

Regional Factors Make Russia-Japan Reset Hit its Fair Share of Snags

The complex, delicately poised reset in the Russia-Japan relationship increasingly seems a distant prospect. Both Russia and Japan desired a reset and saw it being in their best interests...

India extends cautious welcome to Iran deal

A full day after the announcement came in Vienna that Iran and the world powers have reached an agreement on the nuclear issue, Delhi extended a cautious welcome. The foreign ministry spokesperson said that Delhi is waiting to see the text of the agreement but provisionally welcomed the «successful conclusion» of the negotiations...

India’s passage through Central Asian steppes needs rethink

The steppes of Central Asia give away their secrets only grudgingly. The deserving ones have to convincingly show their capacity for persistence and tenacity – and, of course, sheer audacity. That was how Genghis Khan succeeded in conquering Bukhara...

Why Delhi Admonished India’s Modi

...The defeat in Delhi couldn’t have come as a shock to Modi. To his credit it needs to be said that he is a realist who understands the nation’s ‘mood’... Modi has given a free hand to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley with the proviso that he must somehow show results quickly to galvanize the economy and put it on a high trajectory of growth. To be sure, in foreign policies too, there is bound to be some impact. Modi has expounded the ‘Make in India’ project as the centre piece of the country’s economic diplomacy to which he attributes primacy in the foreign policy sphere...

RIC Wades into Asia-Pacific Waters

The meeting of the Russia-India-China [RIC] forum at the level of foreign ministers, which was held in Beijing on February 2, had an extraordinary setting. For sure, the power dynamic within the RIC is dramatically transforming what with the notable improvement in the climate of India-China relations in the past six-month period and with a big upswing in the Sino-Russian partnership, which in turn lends the forum much gravitas...

Obama Hustles Modi, Did He Succeed?

...Indeed, the US objective has always been to recruit India in its containment strategy against China... However, the moment Obama and the spin doctors in his entourage took off for home, Indian officials scrambled to do fire-fighting, distancing themselves from their «strategic misinterpretation» of the joint strategic vision statement. According to them, Modi made it clear to Obama that India’s independent foreign policies would not allow any «third power» (read US) to forge a common front against China...

Obama Prefers Arabia to Taj Mahal (II)

...The US desperately needs Saudi cooperation to address the crisis in Yemen... Today, however much he may respect Brzezinski as a guide and mentor on contemporary world politics («Grand Chessboard»), for Obama himself politically, the crisis in Yemen has the potential to snowball into a showdown with the Republican-dominated Congress and derail the US’ talks with Iran and wreck his entire Middle East agenda...

Obama Prefers Arabia to Taj Mahal (I)

Just hours before the US president Barack Obama took off from Washington for his three-day state visit to India beginning on Sunday, he ordered to simply chop off a poignant slice of his tour itinerary – a memorable visit to the Taj Mahal... Obama decided that he also urgently needed to be in Saudi Arabia and, therefore, once the transactional part of his India visit was over, he would head straight for Riyadh... Clearly, Obama intends to engage first hand at the very earliest the new Saudi leadership under King Salman. A criticality arises, since King Salman who is in the late seventies is known to be suffering from Alzheimer’s, and according to the Wall Street Journal, US officials do not consider him to be a strong or healthy ruler in his own right, which inevitably raises the possibility of others in the royal family coming to the forecourt in a matter of time...

The Lankan Transition Resets Indian Ocean Politics (II)

...The Anglo-American sponsorship of the ‘regime change’ in Sri Lanka means that the West is no longer a discontented party looking in but has become an active player... But the key question in regional politics will be: How far do the Anglo-American interests and Indian interests converge over Sri Lankan developments?.. No doubt, Britain’s recent return to the ‘east of Suez’ (following the establishment of a military base in Bahrain) prompts London to regain its traditional influence over the political elites in Colombo... For the US, of course, Sri Lanka is situated between Diego Garcia and the Malacca Straits; it straddles the sea-lanes of the Indian Ocean through which China conducts the bulk of its foreign trade (including imports of oil)...

US Targets Russia and China with North Korea Pretext

The North Korean state is routinely mocked in the West for engaging in hyperbole and bombast. Ironically, the Western reaction to its latest satellite launch is a carnival of knee-jerk hysteria and hyperbole. But all the bluster has conveniently given Washington an opportunity to proceed with its global missile shield plans. That is far more destabilizing to international security than any alleged North Korean violation...
