For much of the period between 2014 and 2017, uncertainly regarding the other side’s policies and intentions leading to tension, mistrust and competition characterized the relationship. It was an unusual spike in the post cold war era and only subsides in 2018.

Wuhan and after

Over the post decade, 3 historical forces have been shaping India-china relations.

  1. Changing world order and rise the Asia, A phase that generally traced to the period after the 2008 global economic crisis.
  2. Idea that with the west’s declining capacity and inclination to responsibly manage international and Asian affairs, India, china and other re-emerging powers are being threat into new order building roles that would requires coordination and cooperation to preserve institutions and norms.
  3. Changing south Asia with china’s 2013 and 2014 policy declarations of deepening ties with its periphery including with sub continental states, followed soon after with the ambitious belt and roads initiatives and the china-Pakistan economic corridor in April 2015.

Question behind that- How would India and china relates to each other as their footprints grew in their overlapping peripheries?

It was only with the outbreak of the border crisis and the possibility of a conflict that both leadership undertook a sober assessment of the complex historical forces at play. When situated against the broader picture of emerging. Multipolarity, uncertainty on the future of globalization and the still long journey toward social and high tech rejuvenation of their economics, it led to a similar conclusion by the two leadership, A lessening of regional tension was in the national interest of both countries.

# Wuhan 1.0  (5 pillars)

1.Simultaneous emergence of India and china.

  1. A positive factor for stability in the global power flux.
  2. Importance of respecting each other sensitivities, concerns, aspirations.
  3. Strategic guidance to their respective militaries to manage the border peacefully.
  4. Both sides would strive for “greater consultations on all matters of common interest” which includes building a real “developmental partnership”.

India china policy should be guided by 3 grand strategic goals:-

  1. Inclusive security architecture in Asia that facilitates a non- violent transition to multipolarity without disrupting economic interdependence.
  2. A fair and rule- based open international order to better reflect India and developing economy interest.
  3. Geopolitical place and sustainable economic development in the neighborhood.

The recent stability in India-china relations is a choice made by both sides. History is obliging both countries to step up and play constructive roles to Shape the emerging world order even as it is impelling both sides to learn to co-exist in a common neighborhood.
