US President Donald Trump wants India to join his team of Japan and Australia to contain the rising China, but inconsistently he is outright opposed to protecting the interest of Indians living in America. This duality has been shocking. Trump wants India to perform the task as an ally of America. But he is not willing to help India and Indians. For him the utility of India remains restricted to pitting it against China and not more than that.  

Xi Jinping’s China must thank herself for having India, Japan, US and Australia arrayed against her in a Quadrilateral agreement. If India totally abandons her age-old foreign policy of not aligning with any major Power and finds herself aligning every more closely with the United States, the credit for such a development should also go to China. Beijing wanted to encircle India with her ‘string of pearls’ policy. It is now boomeranging on itself.
