Growing India-China relations..

Two articles and both by Chinese authors. Both showing how India-Chinese relations are improving with each passing year.

First by Le Yucheng, Chinese Ambassador to India and second by  Tang Lu, Mumbai Bureau Chief of Xinhua News Agency.

This is welcome given the role both these countries are going to play in emergence of Asia (minus Japan) in global polity. Though, one disagrees that this is just this government’s doing. Efforts have been made in the past to link more and more with China over the years. China’s role in Indian politics has been understood for a very long time. It is just that certain things take time for materialise. Though, one cannot dispute how well these relations have been marketed and sold under the new govt. It is a master of all such ceremonies.

The near collapse of US and Europe has led to focus on China for taking up the role of the global leader. It realises that alone it might not be able to and may take more time.  With India as a co-partner, it gets more credibility (due to India being a democracy and soft power) and might take lesser time as well.

It will be interesting to see how Indo-China games play out in future..
