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.

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.

That conflict ended in a standoff with both sides accusing the other of occupying its territory.
