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 (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)...

Opportunity in the Arctic: Defrosting Russia and America's Chilly Relationship

While the Arctic might not seem like a priority for many Americans, it should not be overlooked as an important region for salvaging the U.S.-Russian relationship.

A Clean Break is Needed (III)

...Without doubt, the Peshawar school attack is a defining moment. Pakistan cannot afford to carry on as before. Perhaps, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could be given the benefit of doubt when he insists that Pakistan will no more differentiate between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Taliban. In immediate terms, Sharif’s handling of the Indian demand for continued detention of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, operations commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba who was a key operative in masterminding the Mumbai terrorist strike in November 2008, becomes a test case...

A Clean Break is Needed (II)

At first sight, the Afghan-Pakistani differences and disputes pose the single biggest negative feature of the regional security scenario in South Asia. However, that will be to underestimate the potency of the dark clouds gathering on the horizon of India-Pakistan relationship.  While the Afghan-Pakistan problem is easily definable, that is not the case with the unfinished business of the Partition involving India and Pakistan in 1947 where politics mixes with religion, national identity and a huge backlog of blood-soaked history...

A Clean Break is Needed (I)

The ghastly attack on an army school in Peshawar last Tuesday appears to be a topping point, finally, in Pakistan’s existential struggle with terrorism. Will the Pakistani leadership rise to the challenge? An equally daunting challenge awaits the policymakers in New Delhi. How does the Indian leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi respond to the watershed event of last week in Peshawar?..

Modi, Putin and the World Order (II)

...Modi is not bogged down in ideology when it comes to India’s relations with the world community. He views the world order almost exclusively through the prism of India’s interests... Modi cannot be unaware of the ground rules of predatory capitalism. His cautious remarks to the media in Putin’s presence suggest that while he may not take recourse to a path of strategic defiance, on the other hand, he seems acutely conscious that abject surrender would only set the stage for further demands and the ultimate outcome would be detrimental to his government’s nationalist agenda and the protective system it promotes for India’s economic and cultural independence...

Political Successors of Banderite Killers Slap Poland in the Face

The Polish social democratic political party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) considers the Ukrainian parliament's recent recognition of the UPA as fighters for independence to be an insult to Poland and its President, Bronislaw Komorowski, an SLD representative stated at a press conference on April 12. The UPA is the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, a wing of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). In the days of the Second World War it collaborated with Hitler’s Germany, including the Wehrmacht, police and security services.
