Kommersant Writes, Xi-Modi Summit Will Strengthen Role of ‘Moscow-Beijing-Delhi Troika’

Oct. 15, 2019 (EIRNS)—In their daily wrap-up of Russian media coverage of major international developments, TASS reported yesterday: “Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the ‘beginning of a new era’ in relations between India and China following President Xi Jinping’s informal trip [Oct. 11-12] to the South Asian country. This rapprochement between Beijing and Delhi is radically changing the situation in the Indo-Pacific region, opening up new opportunities for Russian diplomacy, Kommersant wrote. According to diplomats and experts interviewed by the newspaper, now Moscow would not have to constantly make a difficult choice between two strategic partners, and the Moscow-Beijing-Delhi troika will become a determining factor in global politics.”

The TASS account continued: “Indian Ambassador to Moscow D. Bala Venkatesh Varma told Kommersant that the second informal meeting between the leaders of India and China was another example of India’s strong relations with leading world powers. The meeting will have a positive impact on relations within the Moscow-Beijing-Delhi trio and as far as interaction among the three countries within BRICS goes, the diplomat added.”
