Arun Shourie’s incisive intellect He is peerless among India’s public intellectuals Yet my longstanding respect for Shourie must not stand in the way of my countering his unbalanced advice to Narendra Modi as the latter readies for his maiden prime ministerial visit to Beijing this month His advice is a clear prescription for failure It is completely antithetical to what Modi told Chinese President Xi Jinping last year: “India and China are two bodies with one soul” Modi deserves to be applauded for speaking a profound civilisational truth It helps us understand that the current differences and disputes are relatively minor and can be overcome in the light of this truth There is another truth — China is already a global power set to overtake the US first economically and later in strategic strengthChina is also our largest neighbour As former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee would say one can change history but not geography Peaceful ties with neighbours must be a central objective of India’s agenda for national rejuvenation Sound management of relations with China when it is rising as the most powerful nation must be top priority in our foreign policy How India perceives China and how we think China perceives India is of the utmost importance Shourie is wrong on both counts He alludes to China as an “adversary who rains evil” on India Suggesting Modi also thinks so he claims the “greatest common factor” in “each of the PM’s visits abroad has been one: China” If at all an Indian PM has this kind of “China focus” it can only be termed as “paranoia” It would reflect poorly on a rising power like India if its leaders were paranoid about another great and rising nation in its neighbourhood Shourie goes on to say “as we are not able to equal China’s acquisition of influence yes we must seek common ground with all countries that are apprehensive of China today” This is unmistakably advice for India to become junior partner in a US-led strategy for the containment of China which neoconservatives in America have been urging It’s a dangerous strategy which could give birth to a new edition of the Cold War This delusional strategy is doomed to fail because China simply cannot be contained — just as India cannot be contained The rise of China and India will be the two defining trends of the emerging global order in the 21st century What adds to the flaw in Shourie’s advice is this: on the one hand he says “the Chinese establishment feels that Indians are docile people who will always be doing somebody’s bidding”; on the other he suggests that India become a docile instrument in the American neocons’ plan to bring anti-China countries together How will this benefit India Far from stopping China’s rise it will only make the Chinese view India with suspicion This will be heightened if India as suggested by Shourie blocks Chinese investment in its infrastructure projects while welcoming investment from other counties Both countries should heed an old Chinese saying — “Close neighbours are better than distant relatives” Chinese leaders should know that for India to trust them they must stop unfriendly acts such as disturbing the tranquility along the disputed border Our leaders should know that China — and the world — would respect India more if we resisted its unfriendly acts on our own strength instead of becoming part of an anti-China axis with undependable “distant relatives” such as the US Japan or Australia An agreement on achieving irreversible peace along the border and clarification of the LAC are what Modi and Xi should achieve in Beijing Reducing the trust deficit between the two countries it could become an important step towards the settlement of the border dispute on the basis of mutual compromise Shourie is wrong in saying that China perceives India as a “potential nuisance — one that must be kept busy in South Asia and it has a willing instrument in Pakistan” He is equally erroneous in concluding that “in part Pakistan is a problem because of China” Pakistan is a problem for India principally because of its sponsorship of terrorism There is no evidence that China also facing the threat of Islamist terrorism and separatism is goading Islamabad to use terror against India If anything a new opportunity has presented itself to India and China to cooperate in containing religious extremism and terrorism bringing in Pakistan as a partner since the latter is both a source and a victim of this menace The governments of India Pakistan and China should work towards a trilateral summit to discuss issues of common interest If the foreign ministers of China Japan and South Korea — each of them has problems with the other — could meet in March and agree to hold a three-way summit why not a trilateral dialogue involving India Pakistan and China Contrary to Shourie’s claim it is not China that is keeping India busy in South Asia It is we who have chosen to remain busy by consistently failing to sort out our issues with our neighbours Who is preventing India from playing a bigger role in Asian and global affairs It is our own lack of farsightedness and internal political unity Look how misplaced criticism of Modi’s “frequent” foreign trips made him skip the 60th anniversary of the Bandung Conference In 1955 Jawaharlal Nehru and Zhou Enlai played a key role in evolving the Bandung spirit which signified Afro-Asian solidarity In 2015 with Modi absent Xi Jinping became the star of the show in Indonesia Modi should go to Beijing with a bold approach as behoves a self-confident India and seek ambitious outcomes that are mutually beneficial I have just returned from a 12-day tour of China and seen that Modi is viewed as a strong leader with whom Xi another strong leader can have a constructive dialogue for broadening and deepening India-China cooperation China does not view India as a “potential nuisance” but as a potential partner

ability to alleviate both its near-term economic and security concerns India remains among the largest potential destinations for US exports and investmentand shares US desires to disrupt terrorist

Raja Mohan | Updated: June 28 2016 9:39 am India is getting ready for Vienna where the NSG might meet in a special session to consider India’s membership later this year (Source: PTI) Top News China says it does not like India’s song about joining the Nuclear Suppliers Group But India has rightly decided to play it again Undeterred by Chinese opposition in Seoul India is getting ready for Vienna where the NSG might meet in a special session to consider India’s membership later this year If something is worth doing it deserves a second try — after absorbing the lessons from the complex manoeuvre in Seoul last week at the 48-member club that was set up in 1974 to curb India’s nuclear program following its first atomic test India’s quest for the membership of the NSG is neither whimsical nor desperate It is the last step in a bold and sustained effort that began after the 1998 tests to make India a part of the global nuclear management Until then the world insisted India either give up its nuclear weapons or face an ever-tightening regime of high-technology sanctions In 1998 Delhi declared itself a nuclear weapon power and demanded an end to the sanctions The Clinton Bush and Obama administrations working with Atal Bihari Vajpayee Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi explored ways to resolve the irreconcilable contradiction between a non-proliferation regime built around the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and an India that can’t sign the NPT as a non-nuclear weapon state The Clinton administration lifted many of the sanctions imposed after the 1998 tests and discussed removing those from 1974 President George W Bush launched the historic civil nuclear initiative that carved out an exemption for India from American domestic non-proliferation law and the rules of the NSG The Obama administration took the next step of supporting India’s membership of the NSG and other export control groups like Australia group (chemicals) missile technology control regime (space) and the Wassenaar arrangement (conventional weapons and dual-use technologies) Obama’s decision was founded on the belief that bringing India a leading producer of advanced technologies and a major economy in the world into these groups would help strengthen the non-proliferation regime In Seoul an overwhelming majority of the members agreed with this proposition For India this is about reclaiming its centrality in shaping the global order on arms control and the regulation of advanced technologies While India was the natural leader in shaping these debates in the 1950s it lost ground in the 1960s when it failed to conduct a nuclear test before the nuclear non-proliferation treaty was formalised in 1968 In a bizarre move in 1974 India conducted a nuclear test and declared it “peaceful” Its refusal to build a nuclear arsenal in the 1970s put India in the worst of all situations — of demonstrating capability without following through and inviting expansive sanctions Indian diplomacy believed that denouncing the “discriminatory” NPT and calling for universal disarmament was all that Delhi needed to do Its “moralpolitik” seemed to have little interest in ending the punitive sanctions against Indian science technology and industry If Vajpayee broke the mould by declaring India a nuclear weapon power and seeking reconciliation in 1998 the Singh government negotiated the nuclear deal in 2005 but was slow in implementing it The Modi government is trying to overcome the consequences of the past errors and lethargy and make India a rule maker in this critical arena Many have argued that India should be satisfied with the exemption and that there is no need press for the NSG membership This lack of ambition has indeed long been the norm in India’s foreign policy after Jawaharlal Nehru’s exuberance in the 1950s Since Nehru India has invited the charges of conducting a “reactive foreign policy” and “punching below its weight” in the international arena For generations of diplomatists grown up in this era Modi’s foreign policy certainly looks shockingly activist But for those who recognise the recent expansion of India’s material resources and future potential it is about time While the foreign policy conservatives may be out of touch with a new India the realists have asked an important question: Has not China’s “principled” stand on the NPT doomed India’s quest for the NSG membership If you are not an Indian diplomat pushing for the NSG membership you might be on the floor rolling over with laughter at China’s talk of nuclear “principles” After all no major power has violated the norms of NPT more than Beijing both before and after signing the treaty But that should not detain us here The more promising fact is that China has a very impressive record over the last six decades of changing its “principles” according to political convenience That is probably the reason why Delhi has refused to react peevishly to China’s brazen opposition in Seoul In the end there is one thing we definitely know about Modi’s diplomacy: His government is not easily rattled by disapproving noises at home or abroad Delhi renewed efforts to persuade Beijing to change its mind on India’s NSG membership should therefore be an extraordinary exercise in realpolitik that is well worth watching (This article first appeared in the print
