Modi Diplomacy- Xi's India Visit

Personal relation between leaders has a long tradition in international diplomacy. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi readies to take part in his first summit with US President Barack Obama, pundits and the media have focused a good deal of attention on their encounter, billed to detangle the relationship and reenergize the strategic partnership.

 

From India’s standpoint, attracting Chinese investment is imperative for reviving growth. Besides, its deepening ties with Japan, Australia and Vietnam have opened up more room for manoeuvre in Asia

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Japan, and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India have been portrayed as a challenge for India’s economic diplomacy. Strengthening relations with one is being seen as an alternative to the other. 

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has bent over backwards to befriend China. Yet Chinese President Xi Jinping’s India visit has been marred by border incursions, including one that ranks, in terms of the number of intruding troops, as the worst in many years.

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the US will cap a very busy three months for India’s foreign policy. It has also been a heady period, with India being wooed by multiple strategic partners.

 

China is India’s largest trading partner (although the trade deficit between the two countries has been widening), and trade and investment will undoubtedly be foremost on both leaders’ minds.

The visit is the latest sign of easing suspicions between the two huge countries - which between them have 2.6 billion people - dating from a month-long border war in 1962 that left around 2,000 soldiers dead. That conflict ended in a standoff with both sides accusing the other of occupying its territory.
