‘India will not ally with US against China’
Beijing: Chinese analysts say that US efforts to make India part of its alliance against China will not succeed as they believe India pursued independent foreign policy focusing on its national interests.
US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta`s visit to New Delhi is as part of Washington`s efforts to make it part of alliance against Beijing but India`s interest lie with Beijing, Wang Dehua, a specialist on South Asia studies at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies said.
"It seems that the US is sparing no efforts in forging a semi-circle of alliance against China from the South" as Panetta has attended the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore and afterward visited Vietnam and India, Wang, a specialist on South Asia told state-run Global Times which carried an article highlighting Panetta`s visit to New Delhi.
"But India has its own agenda in the region," Wang said noting that India wants to be independent in making its own foreign policies while maximising its national interests.
"For example, India has refrained from becoming deeply involved in the South China Sea rows because it viewed any friction with China as being against its fundamental national interests," Wang said.
"India`s interests lie in wider economic and cultural cooperation with China. This is China`s opportunity to break up the US intention to contain China," Wang said.
Recent write-ups in the Chinese media were consistent with expectations that India would remain independent.
Another article in the Chinese version of the Global Times said that China should would work to improve bilateral ties with "clear goals" to strengthen friendship taking into consideration New Delhi`s independent foreign policy and its recent decision to pull out of South China Sea oil blocks exploration.
"For a long time, India has not figured as an important centre of Chinese foreign policy and China has not decided on a clear goal in its India policy", the write up published in Huanqiu Shibao, the Chinese version of the hardline Global Times daily run by the ruling Communist Party of China, (CPC) said two days ago.
"Now, the activity of the Indian military in the Indian Ocean has increased and the Indian Navy is also sailing more and more towards the east, lack of mutual trust may lead to both sides adopting a mistaken strategy. China should have clear strategic goals towards India", it said.
