Differences with friendship with America

Differences with friendship with America. The ‘Howdy Modi’ program became the first stop of PM Modi’s US visit to the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly and bilateral talks with the US President. The most talked about Modi’s visit was the same event held on September 22 in the city of Houston, Texas. By American standards, it was a crowded crowd, attended by about 50,000 people, mostly Indians. Even though most were American citizens, they can also be said to be pro-foreigners who had gathered to welcome the Indian Prime Minister. Unexpectedly, US President Donald Trump was also present in it. Many Republican and Democrat MPs also participated in it. The presence of the representatives of both parties broadened the nature of the program.

In Houston, the two leaders praised each other freely. Whether it was the issue of trade, security or political trends, it seemed that the leaders of the world’s oldest and largest democratic countries were speaking in unison. This indicated that all disputed bilateral issues would be meaningfully discussed and resolved at the earliest. Earlier there was some uneasy feeling about the trump in India. One of his statements was the role in which he said that Prime Minister Modi had allegedly asked him to mediate on the Kashmir issue. After this, New Delhi was apprehensive about the removal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir that Pakistan might not join Washington on this issue. These fears proved to be Nimrule from the Modi-Trump meeting. While Trump described the Indian Prime Minister as a special friend and great leader, Modi did the same. He also raised the slogan ‘Abki Bar, Trump Sarkar’. This should have been avoided, but this is the political style of Modi. The pink photo of Houston only lasted for a while. A few days later, Trump was confronted with reality by Trump’s bilateral talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan and his next day Prime Minister Modi. The enduring nature and barriers of Indo-US bilateral relations were also evident in the Modi-Trump talks.

The notion that India and the United States have been nurturing common interests for a long time is not correct. Improving relations between the two countries is a matter of recent times. For almost 34 years, both countries have been quite apart from each other on many issues like security and strategic interests. This snow began to melt a decade ago in relationships. Activism in this direction began in late 2008 during the tenure of Bush-Manmohan Singh. Houston may have had a festive atmosphere, but on September 24, when the two leaders sat down to discuss bilateral issues, the much-awaited trade agreement was not agreed upon. India gets substantial trade benefits from the US. India has a trade surplus of about $ 24 billion. As such, India is included in Trump’s list of countries that are operating unfair trade policies. Trump has promised to improve it. Due to this, the US withdrew the GSP status given to Indian companies in June. These issues were expected to be resolved in the Modi-Trump bilateral talks. It was also anticipated that India would announce more hydrocarbon imports from the US, but no bilateral trade agreement could be reached. This reflects the complexities of the global trade scenario, which is becoming increasingly uncertain and unstable due to Trump’s surprise policies and the trade war with China.

New Delhi’s failure to agree on a mutually acceptable agreement with a trade surplus country is not a good sign in the global scenario. At present, India is working not with the US, but with the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership ie RCEP countries, including China and most East Asian countries. India is incurring a huge trade deficit with most of these countries. India’s uneasiness deepens that Chinese goods may be dominated at the expense of domestic manufacturers. New Delhi’s failure to materialize any acceptable trade deal with major trading countries or groups has its roots in India’s weaknesses in the global export market. India is yet to achieve the status of a competitive and quality manufacturer linked to the global supply chain.

On the business side, there was a disagreement between Modi and Trump during bilateral talks on the issue of security and terrorism. Prime Minister Modi’s full emphasis in Houston, where global terrorism was particularly on the poison of jihad spreading in Pakistan, but the priorities for Trump were different. In a press conference with Imran Khan, when Trump was asked whether he agreed with PM Modi’s assessment that Pakistan remains the axis of terrorism? Trump responded with a retort, saying, “My point is more towards Iran.” That country is truly a terrorist.

The differences between New Delhi and Washington over Pakistani terrorism and perceptions about Iran are decades old and despite the climate in Houston, there is no hope of change. Such a stand on the issue of trade and terrorism does not mean that there is no scope for cooperation in the defense sector. The US has emerged as India’s largest supplier of military equipment and activism between the military forces of the two countries has also increased over time. These days the trilateral Malabar naval exercise between India, US and Japan continues in the Pacific Ocean. China will be watching this practice. This indicates a big challenge for India. This challenge is not Pakistan, but China. How India deals with this challenge, this issue will remain important for India’s security and prosperity in the long run. It would be better for India to maintain a cordial relationship with both America and China without compromising their national interests. In this context, the proposed informal talks between Modi and Chinese President Xi Chinfing in Tamil Nadu in early October will be very important. It will guide New Delhi on how it can manage relations with Beijing and Washington.
