INDIANS HURRY TO REPOSITION



After Obama visit, India set to play ball with U.S. rivals

New Delhi: If Barack Obama's triumphant visit here gave the world the impression that the Manmohan Singh government was drawing too close to the United States, the Russia-India-China (RIC) Foreign Ministers meeting in Wuhan this week will serve as a reminder that India is still willing to play ball with powers that see themselves as rivals to America.

“The timing of the Wuhan trilateral is fortunate because it allows us to do a bit of a repositioning exercise,” a senior Indian official told The Hindu. “Both Russia and China and everyone else will be able to see that we have not given up pursuing all our other interests just because our relations with the U.S. have improved.”
