Looking for Balance in Power

New Delhi recently hosted the foreign ministers of Russia and China this week in the 15th Russia-India-Chian trilateral meeting. The meet is an attempt of the Centre to get a balanced stronghold in the ties with Beijing and Moscow. Discussions of the meeting took place in the backdrop of a good political scenario in the Western Asia and North Africa region. These discussions focussed on an issue like the multiple challenges faced in boosting the world economy back on track, terrorism concerns, transnational organized crime, drug trafficking, food security problem as well as climate change issues. However, one of the interesting aspects of this meet was the Russia and China's attempts at framing global and regional politics and the emerging divergences of India and them. Russia on its part stated that India would benefit from joining in the Belt and Road Initiative with China. China on its part mentioned the Doklam issue stating that India showed respect to the Indo-China relations by withdrawing troops from Doklam. The trilateral meet had an air of tension due to the strategic changes of the global geopolitical scenario. The proposal by former Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov for a Moscow-Beijing-Delhi strategic triangle didn't elicit the much-garnered response. Post that, the three countries focussed on strengthening the bilateral relationships. The 15th trilateral meeting is a significant one and all the countries have different expectations from it and each country is working on its own strategies to realize their individual goals in coordination with the meet.
