Media: Russia made a choice between China and India

Moscow proved its priority in relations with Beijing by canceling the Russian-Indian summit due to the overly pro-American policy from the side of New Delhi. Experts from Modern Diplomacy write about the complicated relations in the Russia-India-China triangle.

Twenty years ago, the Russian Federation and India signed a strategic partnership agreement, after which the Kremlin provided comprehensive assistance to the Indian side both financially, economically, technologically and militarily. Since the agreement was signed, a bilateral summit has been held every year, but it was canceled in 2020, which may be the eve of a serious split in relations between the countries.

In recent years, there has been a very close rapprochement between India and the United States, which, in particular, was expressed in the signing of the Basic Agreement on Exchange and Cooperation, which completed the formation of a close alliance between New Delhi and Washington.

India's role in the Asia-Pacific alliance with the United States, Australia and Japan is evidence that Indian interests are fully aligned with American interests.

- note the analysts of the publication.

The purpose of this alliance is to oppose China and its policies, which contradicts the interests of Russia, which has declared its relations with the PRC strategic.

If a country wants to harm China, Russia feels obligated to break off relations with it.

- believes Modern Diplomacy, explaining Moscow's choice in favor of Beijing.

      I am interested in another thing - since when is the BELGIAN (read British-American) edition not biased? Everything and always promotes the interests of those WHO pays. On whose funds does it exist? Certainly not on donations. Always and at all times, the media served someone's interests.
      Another point - since when does modern Russia give preference to one over the other? And where does it say that the strategic partnership agreement with India BROKEN? The work is being conducted, somewhere more successful, somewhere less successful, BUT IT IS WORKING.
      This edition is still living in the realities of the last century, where everything was black or black. or white. In the current conditions, this is not done (except for very obvious terrorists or Nazis).

        The logic in this case is simple, if the publication expresses the Western point of view, then it is impartial and independent, if the point of view is pro-Russian, then automatically tendentious and propagandistic. winked It's like you were born yesterday laughing

      "The Kremlin provided all-round assistance to the Indian side both in financial and economic terms ..." - this part reminds of delirium!

      Why nonsense? If the GDP is greater, then nothing? Sponsored there is not written. What the help consisted is not specified. For example, it could be related to the payment system.

    canceling the Russian-Indian summit because of the too pro-American policy on the part of New Delhi.

    So China for the sake of Russia is not going to break with the United States. The sanctions will not be re-read that the United States has imposed. So for Russia, China and India are not going to "die". On the contrary, they hope that Russia will harness for them! And they spoil Russia with pleasure.

    Take a look. And Putin, on this, does not pay attention.

      but it is China that pays for gas, etc.

      - So China pays with this "alcohol" of its own, Chinese consumer goods, Chinese used construction and truck vehicles and other Chinese crafts ...
      - When you look ... - how the population of the Far East has degraded, which communicates so directly with the Chinese and most of all consumes various "Chinese products" (and this "alcohol" as well); then you involuntarily begin to believe what this video clip is broadcasting ...

    As Vladimir Putin said, the Russian Federation will not be friends with someone, against someone.
    India needs an ally in its confrontation with the PRC and, if not the Russian Federation, then naturally the United States, especially since the United States is also interested in India as a counterbalance to the growing influence of the PRC.
    Therefore, the Russian Federation did not choose the PRC, but India chose the United States.
