Narendra Modi-Xi Jinping ‘informal summit’ equally important for both leaders given US’ unpredictability
China’s president Xi Jinping, the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi unofficial meeting which is going to be held on Friday and Saturday of this month has a more important. Recently, the official didn’t reveal the talk between Asian leader which was taken place in Wuhan, Central China in Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit. In the last few years, PM Modi and China president met for 10 ten times. However, this two days meeting of Modi and Jinping is comparing with late Former President Rajiv Gandhi meets with China president in the year 1988 for the first time. In 1954 first president Nehuru visit China to meet President after 34 years Ravi Gandhi tour to China got a more importance and response.
There are many reasons behind multilateral meetings of Modi and Jinping. It is not new to Jinping to meet the official without any formalities. In earlier, the former US president Barack Obama had a meeting at Marina Lago in Florida. When the Donald Trump came to power, the international meeting of Modi and Jinping become a highlight.
Bilateral issues to be discussed:
In the last summer, the high tensions occurred between China and India for 73 days due to doklam. The conflict did not lead to war, but peace was restored by the withdrawal of troops. This issue, which has been resolved for decades, is also expected to be discussed at a meeting of two leaders. The meeting in central China, which has trade relations with India, predicts that India’s growing exports to India and an unexpected turn around in a bilateral trade. China’s support for Pakistan in the case of terrorism, India has a strong position to disagree with China in a number of issues such as China’s Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPE) and membership in the NSG. India has expressed serious objection over the build-up of the CPEC project over Pak occupied Kashmir. China’s attempts to make India part of the belt and road infrastructure project that China started with big goals in the old Silk Road shadow of centuries has not been fulfilled.
China and India are good with Trump style:
The American president Trump’s unpredictable and uncertain policies led China and India to cope with their differences and become closer. America’s rivalry with Russia is to increase the former Cold War period due to the Western crisis. On the other side, the Trump attitude in the trade sector is to pump up to China. The trump is followed by the tariffs and taxes that are becoming damaging to China. Furthermore, the efforts of the US to shift North Korea into the Chinese satellite nation has also led to a change in China’s attitude. That is why China is trying to better relations with Japan and Vietnam, ignoring regional differences. This trump will have to look at how much of the summit will contribute to strengthening China’s friendship with India due to the policies of the Trump.
Modi first visits China to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization become a highlight. There is an increase in this distinguishing asset with the Prime Minister of India. However, there is no joint statement of the two days before the end of the meeting. There will not be a joint press conference of the two leaders. Details of their discussions, if any, will be revealed later, the Chinese minister said.
The first US president Richard Nixon, who went to visit Genocchio in 1972, not only with the meeting with Rajiv, Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, was also compared to the Modi-Jinping meeting with Mao Zedong. The Nixon-Mao meeting is expected to meet the Indian and Chinese leaders without the help of diplomats in this luxury home. But the results of Mao-Nixon were immediately visible. Since then, relations between capitalist America and Communist China have grown faster than ever. Even if Modi and Jinping ‘unauthorized’ meeting do not give such immediate results, experts predict that the direction and stages of the two Asian countries can change.
