Nepal: Use of “China Card”- Nepal Gets rewarded: Update No. 363

Note No. 799     Dated 23-Mar-2018
By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan.
In an earlier update (no. 360 dated 23rd feb.) we had referred to PM Oli’s statement on Indo-Nepal Relations.  We had said that what was more troubling was the open, brazen and arrogant declaration of Oli that he would be able to get more leverage from India by getting closer to China.  Though we criticised the statement, it looks that Oli was perhaps right in his assessment on relations with India.

Indian Foreign Policy Establishment’s China Policy Conundrum

Paper No. 6356                                    Dated 14-Mar-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

India and its foreign policy establishment’s most confusing conundrum once again is to clearly define whether in the larger and long-range perspective China is India’s ‘Friend or Foe’? India’s lack of discerning this distinction makes it ecstatically jump at every crumb of feigned friendship that China spasmodically keeps throwing at India

Myanmar: Rohingya Issue- Getting more and more complicated

Paper No. 6354                                      Dated 08-Mar-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

The Rohingya problem which was a local  bilateral issue between Myanmar and Bangladesh and had then become a regional issue with the Rohingya refugees spreading out of Bangladesh. 

It is now getting into international dimensions and one cannot but agree with the statement of A.M.A Muhith, the Finance Minister of Bangladesh that the Rohingya repatriation back to Myanmar will never succeed!
