Why India & the West are wary of each other | India's geopolitical dilemma 3/3 | DW Analysis

With the threat from China mounting, and Russia in the grip of war, India needs friends – and the democracies of the West are the obvious candidates. But this relationship is complicated – overshadowed by the legacy of colonialism, suspicions of Western double standards, and concerns in the West that the India of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is losing its commitment to liberal democratic values.

In the third and final part of “India’s Choice,” a special series on the geopolitical dilemmas facing India, DW’s Richard Walker explains how the West is trying to recruit India for a democratic pushback against authoritarian China – and why there are lingering doubts on both sides about how close the relationship can get.

Featuring interviews with Jay Panda, Vice President of India’s ruling BJP, Shashi Tharoor of the opposition Congress, Hartosh Singh Bal of The Caravan Magazine, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Tobias Lindner, Minister of State in the German Foreign Office, Lisa Curtis, former Senior Director, US National Security Council, and Garima Mohan of the German Marshall Fund.
