Surge of Saudi nationalism hurts US

'The surge of Saudi nationalism is the last thing Washington wants,' says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar.

Who will blink first? Trump or Qatar's emir?

'Did Trump hint at US military intervention in Qatar?' asks Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar. In a shocking performance by his own standards, US President Donald Trump tore into Qatar in highly inflammatory language accusing it as a State sponsoring terrorism and casting it as an adversary of the United States. Make no mistake, this was no early morning Twitter, no 'Trumpspeak' at the golf course in Florida on the weekend. Actually, believe it or not, it happened while reading out from a prepared ...

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 ...

Modi-Trump meet: Why the lack of euphoria is good news

The fantastic notions regarding the 'defining partnership' that accrued during the Obama years are withering away.We see none of the euphoric build-up customary to India's encounter with US presidents in recent times.These give Modi wriggle room to work on the much-needed reset of India-US ties, says Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar.

All of India's parties must rally behind R N Kovind

'The Opposition parties should seriously give thought to endorsing Kovind's candidacy and close this chapter of divisive politics,' advises M K Bhadrakumar. Like many others, the first thought that came to me too was Kovind Who? -- as a friend starkly framed the shock and awe when the name of the BJP's Presidential candidate surged into view yesterday. But then, that dismal perception has changed dramatically overnight. From all accounts, Ram Nath Kovind also happens to be eminently qualified ...
