Policy Study

24/10/2017

The summer months bring a certain lull and calm into Indian domestic politics. Because of this, but also as a result of the long-standing confrontation of Indian and Chinese troops in Bhutan, we continue with our focus on the India-China relations and India’s position vis-à-vis the Chinese OBOR initiative. The visit of the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in India features prominently and has to be seen also in the wider context of the geostrategic implications of the tense bilateral relations between India and China.
