Implications Of The New Indo-US Strategic Embrace

  • An attempt to gang up against China will bring back strains in bilateral ties
  • The US continues to be ambivalent on India’s position on the McMahon Line in its boundary dispute with China
  • India’s entry into UN Security Council  will depend on active support from Washington as well as China and Russia
  • A close Indo-US strategic embrace may force China-Russia-Pakistan to realign and form a partnership
  • China is a major source from which India needs significant investment in infrastructure. Will it continue to come?
  • India, China have common positions on climate change, WTO and greater say in IMF and World Bank. A split will weaken India’s position.

It’s taking steps to implement the “strategic partnership” between the two sides that firmly puts India at the centre of the US’s evolving security architecture for Asia.
