The British did it first. And a 10-year old boycott of Narendra Modi by the European Union is also coming to a grinding halt

 Anyone who believes international relations are governed by morality is living in a dreamworld. It may be cynical, but it is a fact. The US had no problems with Saddam Hussein gassing his own people as long as he was battling the Iranians. The moment he ceased to be of any use to him, they attcked Iraq and deposed him on the patently false charges of amassing WMD.

When an anti-Modi stance appeared the line to take to gain brownie points with people the US and EU was trying to please. Now that the befits of the earlier policy have dwindled, these govts are changing track so as not to be deprived of what they percieve to be their share of the spoils. If any further proof is required, then look at the continued and unbroken engagement by the world's "democracies" with various military regimes.

In international relations there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies, only permanent interests. Lord Palmerston's words are as relevant today as when he made them nearly 200 years ago.

Exactly what Outlook is doing in this issue, right?
Also note, the conservatives are in power. So, a more pragmatic approach is expected unlike in the case of Mr.Blair.
