Unpacking the India-China relationship: A dangerous stalemate

China is India’s largest neighbor and second-largest trading partner. At the same time, China is India’s primary external rival, and relations between the two countries have grown more tense amid violent clashes on the Himalayan border.

On GZERO World, Ian Bremmer discusses the precarious India-China relationship with Samir Saran, President of the Observer Research Foundation, a leading Indian think tank. Saran says there is a paradox in the current status quo, where despite tension in the Himalayas, trade between the two countries is expanding in China’s favor.

India-Canada: Trudeau's "perverse politics" threatens relations, says Samir Saran

India-Canada relations have hit a crisis point following Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s bombshell allegation in September that India was responsible for the murder of a Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in British Columbia last June. The fallout was swift: India’s foreign ministry dismissed the accusation as “absurd,” both countries expelled top diplomats, and tensions have escalated significantly.

“Friends don’t do this in public,” Samir Saran, President of the Observer Research Foundation think tank tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, “This was something that should have always been in the private mode.”

Can the India-Canada relationship be fixed after a suspicious murder?

In September, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau leveled a bombshell accusation in Canada’s House of Commons: He announced there were “credible allegations” India was involved in the killing of a Sikh separatist leader and Canadian citizen, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in British Columbia in June.

New Delhi immediately dismissed the claims as “absurd” and demanded any evidence be released publicly, which Canada has yet to do. But the diplomatic fallout was swift: Canada expelled the head of India’s security service in Canada, and New Delhi demanded dozens of Canadian diplomats leave India.

On GZERO World, Ian Bremmer speaks with Samir Saran, President of the Observer Research Foundation, a top Indian think tank, to discuss the fallout from the shocking allegations, the history of the Khalistan separatist movement within Canada, and where the two countries go from here, given their strong diasporic and economic links.
