Summit postponed: India is more and more dissatisfied with Russian policy

A number of Indian diplomats are expressing dissatisfaction with Russia's first postponement of the Russia-India summit in two decades, including the diplomat Ashok Sajanhar, who worked in Russia in the early 2000s, and Kanwal Sibal, the former Indian ambassador to Russia. About the dissatisfaction of some political circles in New Delhi about the postponement of the summit, as well as the reasons for the criticism of the Russian policy by the Indians tells the Pakistani edition of The Express Tribune.

Worrying that both countries were unable to host even an online summit

- notes Ashok Sajjanhar, speaking about the dissatisfaction in India with Moscow's policy towards New Delhi.

In addition, a number of sources indicate that Russia allegedly does not notice the threat emanating from China to India, and also criticizes the Indo-Pacific Partnership and India's close relations with the United States and its satellites.

According to The Express Tribune, such publications did not appear by chance and are associated with the Kremlin's statements about Russia's participation in February in the AMAN-2021 joint military maneuvers with Pakistan, as well as with the start of construction in July 2021 of the Pakistan Stream gas pipeline. Thus, a number of Indian experts are trying to drive a wedge into relations between Moscow and Islamabad and force Russia to follow Indian interests.

A series of unofficial responses from India (through the aforementioned articles) to Russia are aimed at publicly forcing it to abandon its rapid rapprochement with Pakistan and follow in the wake of New Delhi

- notes the author of the publication in the Pakistani edition, speaking about the desire of India to use its partnership with Russia against Pakistan and the PRC.

The Express Tribune concludes that India should stop putting pressure on Russia and see it as its “junior partner” - the Russian Federation will not obey anyone, and with the intensification of such information campaigns in the Indian media, the Kremlin will trust India less and less.

    The "jealous fears" of the Indians are clear and understandable.
    But after all, India (its hyper-pragmatic and mega-mercantile New Delhi), in resolving its state foreign policy and economic issues, is by no means "always and everywhere" concerned about "zealous observance of Russian interests" and is "concerned" with this at all ?! winked
    So why then these "double standards" - "capricious offenses (in fact, having a manipulative character!)" Of high-ranking Indian diplomats, and even expressed with such literal (through Pakistani) "circumlocutions" ??!

      You need to talk about Petliura, Bandera and Potroshenko, Zelensky and other traitors, and not poke your nose where you are not asked. In our own affairs, we will sort it out ourselves. And think about how to do so that Ukraine does not fall to pieces.

    What can you say here? India missed an opportunity to break free from the Anglo-Saxon clutches. And now her perspective is quite clear: she will enter the Anglo-Saxon part of the world. And India made such a choice itself. The Indians began to conduct intelligence operations against our developments and participate in the partnership programs of the Pentagon and the London military office (Mi5 or Mi6). In short, they chose their side of the story clearly and unambiguously. Adieu.

    Worrying that both countries were unable to host even an online summit

    Offline - everyone is looking at the covid, many international events (parties) are canceled or postponed.

    Online (remotely) - the Indians themselves are most likely not interested. I suppose that many issues are resolved during informal meetings in a warm atmosphere. The point then is to hold such an "online summit" - there will be no significant agreements, and a summit without results is a failure.

    It is logical to transfer.

    With India, most joint ventures are doomed to turn into a bazaar bargaining with puffing up their cheeks. There is no need to refuse, but you should not worry about the Hindustan offenses on duty. About the service staff of the "Anglo-Saxon world" above everything was written correctly. Vedas, ashrams, multiculturalism are one thing. And business, - India is on the "other" side, although it is not averse to have nishtyaks from Russia on occasion. So it was, and so it will be. Bazaar.

    India has been the leader of the non-aligned movement for many years. Today she needs to really get her allies. There are too many territorial disputes with China and Pakistan. Russia is an unreliable ally, it can abandon it at any time, and it will not be able to compete with China in principle. Therefore, the choice is simple - the United States should become the main ally. Everything is gradually moving towards this. Although it is unreasonable to refer to Pakistani sources. It's like trying to study the domestic political situation in Russia from publications published in the United States.
