India Absent At Belt And Road Forum But Its Presence Felt At China’s Mega Show

India is often depicted as an elephant in Chinese state media articles and cartoons. On Sunday, that elephant seemed to have leapt out of the pages and entered the venue of the Belt and Road Forum (BRF), China’s grand show of economic might and growing strategic heft, and became a heavy presence that no one wanted to talk about, but everyone was aware of. India, the fastest growing developing economy with a 300 million and growing middle class, cheap labour, proficiency in English and young population, was easily the most notable absentee at the BRF on Sunday. Major western powers did not send heads of states either, but were represented by high-level delegations. The US, South Korea and Japan – not known for happy ties with China – too sent delegations; even a reclusive North Korean government dispatched two representatives though they remained suitably unobtrusive on the first day of the two-day forum. India took a decision not to deploy even its China-based diplomats for the forum because of its concerns and objections over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) passing through Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK). China, it was learnt, was aware that India’s concerns with CPEC had made it difficult for its top leaders to attend the forum. But Beijing had expected that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would send some level of representation to the forum. For example, though India was invited by China to send a contingent of troops to participate at the World War II commemoration parade in September 2015 in Beijing, it declined the invitation but sent Minister of State for External affairs VK Singh to attend the military parade. China probably expected a response on similar lines. But that didn’t happen. A senior politician from the South Asian neighbourhood with ancient ties with India but increasingly close relations with China took two steps back and threw his hands up when asked about India’s absence. “It’s India’s concern,” he said with an awkward smile. Few other diplomats who didn’t wish to be named said it was India’s decision not to attend the forum and that they had no comment to offer. There would have been few mentions of India at the academic and discussion sessions that followed the inauguration of the BRF by President Xi Jinping. At a session on cooperation between think tanks in countries under the BRI, former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd made a rare mention of India. He said China, India, Russia and the US should come together to develop a long-term security architecture. The policy document on the BRI, titled “Building the Belt and Road: Concept, Practice and China’s Contribution” also had to inevitably mention India as it talked about the BCIM-EC (Bangladesh, China, India, Myanmar Economic-Corridor). Among the handful of Indians present at the forum on Sunday besides Beijing-based Indian journalists was Sudheendra Kulkarni, chairperson of the Mumbai-based Observer Research Foundation. He criticised India’s decision not to participate at the forum. “Whosoever has advised the PM, has given a very, very bad advice,” he said. “India has isolated itself by not participating at any level in the BRF. India has concerns and reservations and these are legitimate ones. And it could have expressed many of the things it has put out in the official statement by coming here and making its point on the forum as some of the participants made in the morning in an oblique way of course,” he said. “But by staying away, India has isolated itself because today at the BRF, practically the entire world is here. Including the US and Japan which have serious reservations of China,” he said. It now remains to be seen how China, usually depicted as a giant but gentle panda in state media cartoons, reacts to India’s decision.

India Outsmarts China on OBOR

India Outsmarts China on OBOR When Nepal’s President Bidya Devi Bhandari came to India on a five-day visit, she didn’t know that her country’s northern neighbour, China was watching her first ever foreign trip very keenly. Bidya Devi Bhandari is a constitutional head of Nepal who has no decision making power, yet Beijing seemed to be wary of her visit because she wore on her sleeve a very high national symbol and it is that of President. As per media reports, when Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias ‘Prachanda’ recently made a visit to China, his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping turned out to be one which led Prachanda come out with no fond memories. It is said that he was asked to implement all agreements signed between the two nations when KP Oli was the Prime Minister. No new bilateral agreement was signed between Nepal and China during Prachanda’s visit. A few weeks after his arrival from China, Prachanda cleared the way for Bidya Bhandari’s visit which could not take place last year as Nepal’s ex-Prime Minister Oli cancelled it in the last moment in an attempt to embarrass India. Apart from giving red-carpet welcome which included ceremonial reception at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, Bidya Bhandari was offered all necessary helps to make her trip comfortable and memorable. At the moment when China is leaving no stone unturned to make its forthcoming summit on One Belt One Road(OBOR) highly successful, India’s attempt to throw all charms around Nepal would not have given Chinese authorities a good night sleep. India has also assured Nepal help in conducting local government body polls scheduled to be held in May and June. Conducting local body polls smoothly would help Prachanda strengthen his leadership further in the background of the fact that provincial and national elections are also going to take place later this year. This will be the first time in 20 years that local elections will take place in the Himalayan nation, which will pay the way for full transition of the country into republican democracy, besides unencumbered execution of developmental agenda of the government. But political parties in the Madhes region, Nepal’s plain area which is home to around 50 percent of the country’s total population, have threatened to boycott the polls to pressure Kathmandu to address their demands, including the amendment of Nepal’s new Constitution. The Prachanda government has tabled the revised Constitutional amendment bill in Parliament, but it is not confident that whether Madhesis would welcome it or not. It is in this view, Prime Minister Modi’s assurance to Prachanda of help during their telephonic talks on April 25, assumes high significance.

Dry run for Russia-Iran-India Trade Transport project tomorrow - China's Silk Road still a concept

India is moving ahead with its plans of accessing transnational multi-modal connectivity to articulate its role in the proposed transportation architecture in the region and beyond. This follows India’s decision to become the 71st signatory to Transports Internationaux Routiers or International Road Transports (TIR) Convention—an international transit system, designed to facilitate the seamless movement of goods throughout these countries in Asia and Europe. “The streamlined international system for the movement of goods by road and other modes will, in particular, enhance India’s International ‘North-South’ Transport Corridor, a key trade route between Central Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States in the north, and southern ports in India and beyond, such as Chabahar in Iran,” IRU, the world’s road transport organisation said in a statement on 7 March. Experts say India should leverage Chabahar to make INSTC a viable proposition. “We have to make best use of Chabahar which can open the entire central Asia to us,” said Saurabh Chandra, former secretary in the department of industrial policy and promotion. =================================================== DISCLAIMER: Information, Facts or Opinion expressed in this Video are Presented as Sources and do not reflects views of INDIA TUBE and hence INDIA TUBE is not liable or responsible for the same.

The US state department said the budgetary request of its South and Central Asia will support the two initiatives: the New Silk Road (NSR) focused on Afghanistan and its neighbours, and the Indo-Pacific Economic Corridor linking South Asia with Southeast Asia.

This request will be leveraged through side-by-side collaboration with regional countries, other bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, and the private sector. It said "the importance of...the New Silk Road grows" as the transition in Afghanistan continues and the US "strives to help the Afghan people succeed and stand on their own."

The state department said it will deepen support for the objectives through "far-reaching" public diplomacy programs.

According to James McBride of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New Silk Road refers to a suite of joint investment projects and regional trade blocs that have the potential to bring economic growth and stability to Central Asia.
