Averting India’s Fall into a Geopolitical Trap » Indian Defence Review

July 13, 2018

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a foreign policy course-correction after realising that the strategic tilt towards the United States has not only grossly upset India’s geopolitical image but also undermined national interests. Indian interests are being particularly affected by the US decision to link its sanctions on Iran and Russia with India, with the Countering America’s Adversaries through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) having the potential to damage India’s defence preparedness. India has decided to defy the US diktat and made it clear that Trump’s “me first approach” is not acceptable and that it would not be guided by any other country on its import of weapons. It has decided to go ahead with the purchase of the Triumf missile and also announced its commitment to follow UN sanctions, not US sanctions on Iran.

Eastward ho! India looks beyond SAARC » Indian Defence Review

July 13, 2018

India, once again, is thrown into a piquant situation in its own neighbourhood. In the penultimate year before this NDA government goes to the polls, its ‘Neighbourhood First’ policy of 2014 has not yielded much gains. The evolving situation in South Asia has often needed quick readjustments, but India’s inability to rise to the occasion and stick to its muscular-policy matrix has been a sombre reminder of the limits of its power play in an assertive region.
