US can Ill-afford to send Confusing Signals on South Asia to India in 2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The United States in 2019 stands geopolitically and strategically challenged by China in Indo Pacific, Iran in the Middle East and Russia in Eastern Europe, Northern Tier of the Middle East and has a strategic nexus with China.

By Dr Subhash Kapila
