  • Strategic Autonomy

    The rise of China demands Delhi intensify its cooperation with Beijing and prudently manage the multiple tensions that could undermine the bilateral relationship.

  • India: Loss Of Control

    Domestic political considerations continue to undermine several aspects of India’s foreign policy.

  • Don't Blame It on China

    Unless Delhi brings greater clarity to the interpretation of the nuclear liability act and the regulations for its implementation, India's hopes of building an advanced nuclear power industry at home and exporting nuclear reactors and services around the world will come to naught.

  • Chinese Takeaway

    Those who think “spheres of influence” is an outdated idea in international relations should take a close look at China’s charm offensive in Southeast Asia.

  • A Moment for Asian Solidarity

    A strong alignment between India and Indonesia holds the key to Delhi’s much-vaunted “strategic autonomy” and Jakarta’s quest for a “dynamic equilibrium” in Asia.

  • He Tried His Best

    There is no avoiding the conclusion that Manmohan Singh will end his prime ministerial tenure without advancing his vision to transform India's relations with Pakistan.

  • Irresolute on the World Stage

    Manmohan Singh should use his upcoming visit to Washington to reaffirm New Delhi's commitment to the strategic partnership.

  • Odd Couples: Obama and Rouhani; Singh and Sharif

    As the UN Security Council grapples with getting control of Syria’s chemical weapons, two meetings in New York will draw considerable attention in the subcontinent and around the world.

  • Passive on Syria

    Beijing is dipping its diplomatic toes in the turbulent waters of the Middle East. But it is not clear if Delhi is ready to do the same.

  • Continental China

    Even as China becomes a maritime power to reckon with, Beijing has no desire to give up on its continental aspirations.

  • Talking to the Taliban: Between Hope and Experience

    There is no evidence to suggest Nawaz Sharif has persuaded the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence to change its strategy to install the Taliban in power and turn Afghanistan into a protectorate of the Pakistan Army.

  • The Arab Divide on Syria

    As Obama seeks support for a bombing campaign against Syria, the Arab League has held the Assad regime responsible for the use of chemical weapons and called for international action.

  • Karzai in Pak

    Delhi must engage all forces in Afghanistan and focus on insulating India from the negative consequences of the new phase that has begun to unfold on India's northwestern frontiers.

  • India and Iraq: Restoring the Old Warmth

    The visit of the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to India marks the rapid acceleration of bilateral ties after Delhi’s prolonged neglect of Baghdad.

  • Power Relation

    Xi Jinping, who took charge of the Chinese Communist Party last year, has quickly proclaimed the “Chinese Dream”—or the great renewal of the nation—as the main mission for his decade-long rule.

  • What Delhi Must Say, What Dhaka Needs to Hear

    Early parliamentary approval of the land boundary agreement with Bangladesh is in India’s interest. If the BJP sees itself as a champion of national security, it must support the bill.

  • Beyond Vikrant

    As India celebrates the launch of the Vikrant, the much delayed first indigenous aircraft carrier, Delhi is not the only one in Asia focused on the virtues of airpower at sea.

  • Unquiet on the Front

    Delhi must move toward more responsible management of its borders with Pakistan and China.

  • Japan’s Marines

    Facing China’s growing military power and Beijing’s increasingly assertive regional policy, Japan may have no option but to make marines a critical element of its new defense strategy.

  • New Middle East

    If there ever was a moment for India to stick by the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other nations, this is it in the Middle East.
