Recently, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to India for a five-day visit, which she worked since January of this year’s first visit to India. During the visit, the United States and India agreed to nuclear non-proliferation, security and other areas of cooperation based on the strategic dialogue. Indian media on Clinton’s visit to India tour commented that India-US relations into a new strategic partnership track.
Not long ago, Hillary Clinton in a speech at the US-India Chamber of Commerce, in particular, the use of “US-India 3.0″ to describe the relationship between the two countries to be upgraded. Agence France-Presse reported previously, some Indian commentators have complained that Obama came to power high-profile diplomatic contacts with China, and efforts to help India’s “old rival” Pakistan to maintain domestic stability, which makes sense of some of India was “ignored.” Therefore, some analysts believe that the Clinton’s trip to India, the most important is the “calm” about India.
sort out the India and the United States signed several important cooperation agreements, it is easy to see, including the “new technology protection agreement”, “end-user monitor the agreement,” “civilian nuclear cooperation agreement” signed the agreement bound to the future development of India’s strategic value.
However, the U.S. is not without reservations. In these agreements, the United States set a lot of restrictions. For example: The U.S. has the right to conduct site safety supervision India; the U.S. has the right to India to launch U.S. satellites for verification, to ensure that their equipment is not “misuse”; the United States can monitor their advanced weapons technology sold to India does not flow into a third country, and so on. Analysts pointed out that these restrictions will undoubtedly make the India-US cooperation agreement package “gold content” discounted. According to the agreement, India to buy US-made advanced technology and equipment being monitored at any time in the U.S., India to cooperate with any third country when these devices are difficult to use. Even with, where relevant, will be the U.S. master.
Indo-US cooperation agreement signed in India to buy advanced U.S. technology and equipment large paved the way, but it must be noted that India once relied on the United States advanced equipment, to a certain extent, is bound to restrict its own R & D equipment. For example, in military enterprises, if India imports from the United States to rely on long-term aircraft, missiles and warships, etc., can hardly be sufficient funds to develop its own advanced equipment, will delay the process of building their own arms. For decades, the Indian armed forces rely heavily on arms imports from abroad, which led to the development of Indian-made weapon is extremely slow. India’s annual military spending of more than 200 billion dollars, while the Air Force is purchasing 126 fighter aircraft of foreign advanced cost will reach ten billion U.S. dollars or so.
years, the US-India nuclear cooperation in the boycott on the lot, but the thorny problem now finally bear the “immortal.” Hillary 20, announced United States and India have been on two U.S. civilian nuclear reactors in India on a new agreement. According to Hillary’s argument, the construction of two nuclear reactors will not only promote the bilateral civilian nuclear cooperation, but also “reactor exports to the United States billions of dollars in income to bring the two countries to create employment opportunities for the people of India to create the necessary energy,” is a “win-win” move. Clearly, the United States and India are concerned, this result seems to be “happy.”
Indeed, based on India’s strategic importance in South Asia, and the United States and India in many areas of strategic interest, particularly the US-India civilian nuclear cooperation between the two countries successfully concluded the agreement, both from the international political point of view, or from economic interests, relations between the two countries more closely in the future. Analysts believe that Hillary Clinton’s visit to India by promoting the development of bilateral strategic relations, a major purpose is to try to win over India to join the U.S. Asia-Pacific security strategy. Among them, the war on terror, the United States wants India in the fight against insurgents in Afghanistan and hide in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan to cooperate in terms of terrorists. The reason why Hillary Clinton’s last year’s terrorist attacks in Mumbai as its first stop of his visit to India, the main reason is to strengthen India’s anti-terrorism cooperation with the United States. However, India to safeguard its national interests, but also has its own security strategy considerations. This is to strengthen domestic security, improve anti-terrorism combat, focusing on economic development. Therefore, in Afghanistan, India has been “shy”, do not want to get involved, especially involved in fighting terrorism and so reluctant to send troops.
Thus, the Indo-US political interaction has yielded some results, reflecting the development of strategic cooperation between the two sides will and demands, but some important issues in the two countries had reservations, which undoubtedly India-US relations to the future development of more variables left.
