Why Gadkari's visit to Iran is important

The Chabahar port, says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar, 'can be the first significant footfall in an Indian variant of the 'Belt and Road' initiative.' Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to depute Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to represent India at the inaugural ceremony of Iran's President Hassan Rouhani on his second term is a most appropriate, timely and thoughtful decision. 'Appropriate' because it is a signal that India attaches high importance to relations with Iran. Gadkari is a ... Rediff.com, 1 month ago

Let's not gloat about the BRICS declaration

'By crudely dragging the topic into the bazaar to flog it for momentary pleasure, we turned it into a dead carcass by the time Modi even got back from Xiamen,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. The BRICS statement naming the terrorist groups active in the South and Central Asian region was brilliant news insofar as India and China could reach consensus on such a vital front of regional security hardly days after the two countries were peering into the abyss of a war. But what followed turned ...

The winners and losers in Trump's Afghan strategy

'Delhi has identified itself with Trump's Afghan strategy whereas the Chinese stance is calibrated -- observant and objective, keeping a distance,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. New Delhi and Beijing are the only two regional capitals that have commented on US President Donald J Trump's speech on August 21 outlining the way forward in Afghanistan. The Indian foreign ministry statement was effusive in praise while the Chinese statement has been one of cautious and guarded hope. Delhi has ...

China is on a strong wicket in Asia

'It is an unpleasant fact of history that stronger nations dominate the power play and the only way it can be mitigated is through recourse to diplomacy,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. Recommended for you: India's Chinese Challenge The regional setting in which the India-China standoff at Doklam is playing out can only be ignored at our risk. Most Indian pundits are training their guns on China's 'bullying -- its growing capacity to dominate the discourse regionally or bilaterally. This ...

Will Russia mediate between India, China?

'Russian diplomacy is presumably at work.''The ground is slippery, because "territorial sovereignty" is a hugely sensitive issue,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. Through the month-long India-China standoff in Doklam near the Sikkim border, Moscow has not spoken. Russian diplomacy is presumably at work. The ground is slippery, because 'territorial sovereignty' is a hugely sensitive issue. Meanwhile, top Kremlin official Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of Russia's Security Council and a close ...

China plays its Kashmir card: Why India must be on guard

'It will be foolhardy to overlook that this stunning shift in China's stance comes as the culmination of the severely damaged India-China relationship under the present government,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. India will surely reject -- if South Block has not done it already -- the resolution passed by the Organisation of Islamic Conference's Council of Foreign Ministers on July 11 regarding the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. India's consistent position is that it rejects such ...

Terrorism is a grey area in India-Israel ties

'Unsurprisingly, the joint statement issued after Modi's visit contains a paragraph on terrorism.''It is on the usual lines that India would have with, say, Croatia.''The surprising part is that it shies away from getting into specifics,' points out Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. Israel has given a masterly lesson to sister embassies in Chanakyapuri what media management skill is all about -- how the Modi government's ban on journalists accompanying the prime minister during his tours abroad can ...

India must not be carried away by Israel's bluster

'The real challenge cannot be underestimated considering that this is still very much a "boutique relationship" -- a transactional relationship at its core based on its utility value to both countries -- but enveloped in an aura of romance,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. Without doubt, the India-Israel relationship enjoys 'bipartisan consensus' in both countries. Therefore, it will be a contrived ploy to suggest that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bringing the relationship 'out of the ...

5 takeways from Modi's US visit

'China was the elephant in the Oval Office and Trump would have sensed that Modi's foreign policy architecture has become disoriented sans the US' pivot to Asia,' points out Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump held talks, stepped out into the Rose Garden at the White House and read out prepared statements, each from his own perspective -- and the two versions apparently make a 'joint statement'. The Trump White House issues joint statements in ...
