Egreteau (2012) cites the views of Chinese diplomats on the modern contemporary India. It is found that they have negative connotations about modern India. Chinese diplomats consider India to be naïve and passionate. They also feel that the image of India to be a country needs to be clean. There is also the perception of corruption in India. The innate communalism must be addressed. There have been allusions that the Sino–Indian interactions are affected beyond repair. Another important factor that impedes the progress is the role of the US in the relationship that is forged between China and India.
Turner (2016) states that there is the US rebalance of the Asia Pacific that is a major force in the China and India relationship. In general, USA seems to favour China over India in terms of trade relations. There is strong US presence in China when compared to that in India. US needs to favour the rise of China over India. In this India is missing from many of the key security issues for USA. There are also ontological American self that play a factor in the relationship. Owing to these factors India and China relationships seems to be strained in the current times.
Added to this paradigm, there are many mutual territorial issues, geopolitical issues and geo civilizational issues that need to be contended in this paradigm. People need to consider these innate issues and Indians also view the Chinese with apprehensions (Wang, 2009). There is also the issues of economic facts and marketing for the same consumer bases that has increased the innate tensions existing between the nations. There are a number of territorial disputes that have arisen in these nations that need to be addressed. From these analogies, it can be stated that the possibility of China and India working together seems very low. It cannot be refuted that the China-India economic alliance has the potential to alter the world. The countries have the largest economic consumer spending and the capability to alter the world.
They can effectively replace US and EU. A scientific alliance between these two nations can have far reaching consequences. The combined pool of the resources can lead to better scientific deliveries and also leads to unimaginable progress in the growth of the science and medicine. The economists of the world agree that the partnership that is forged between China and India can be a formidable alliance which can dominate the world markets and the security issues (Hopewell, 2015). There are political talks that are going on between these two nations to address these facts. It is an understanding that if these two nations can put aside their differences and find a common platform to address the issues there is a possibility of stemming into world leaders.
