India, which is busy making friends with the White House, has been poured cold water

With Biden’s swearing in as president of the United States, it seems that Biden is becoming the mainstream mood in the United States to hope that he can make the United States “sick, weak, angry, divided and violent” rise again. < / P > < p > but does it sound strange to say that a South Asian country thousands of miles away is gazing westward with unprecedented enthusiasm and high hopes for the new Biden to bring miracle to its own country? < / P > < p > you’re right. India, the US “strategic partner” who is suffering from the epidemic crisis and economic difficulties, is currently addicted to a “new topic”: how to more skillfully demonstrate Biden’s “class feelings” towards the United States. In 2001, as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden advocated the lifting of sanctions against India; in 2008, Biden helped guide the US India “historic” civil nuclear agreement to pass in the Senate < / P > < p > according to the Indian media, in the past four years, the trump government, which has repeatedly exerted pressure on India and frequently threatened with tariffs or even sanctions, has become a sharp contrast at this time, setting off Biden with “the glory of human nature”. Therefore, they generally believe that Biden, who pays more attention to the alliance, is expected to put the US India Economic and trade relations back on track. < / P > < p > because of his Indian origin, Kamala Harris was warmly welcomed by Indian media, politicians and commentators after he was elected vice president of the United States. Some people called his election India’s “proud moment”. < / P > < p > I still remember that as soon as Harris was elected, modi tweeted congratulations, saying that this is a “historic moment” and looking forward to meeting with Harris and strengthening India US relations. In his letter to Harris, the leader of India’s Parliament called him “the daughter of India”. < / P > < p > what makes Indian media very proud is that besides Harris, India has many “own people” in the White House. “India today” inventory said that Biden’s team of Indian Americans “unprecedented number”, in addition to Harris, there are 20 Indian Americans in important positions. When explaining why India is so full of expectations for Biden’s government, the Indian media inevitably involves China. Indian media believe that under the background of the uneasy border between China and India, and India’s long-standing aspiration to be a “great power with sound and color”, India urgently needs the US as a friend. < / P > < p > according to India today, compared with 59% of the Indian people clamoring for the war against China in August 2020, the mood in India has cooled slightly. Recent polls show that 57% of the Indian people believe that negotiation is the best way to solve the border crisis between China and India. However, whether it is conflict or negotiation with China, India seems to be a little “weak” and hopes to draw on the United States to embolden itself. In addition, in 2019, with the abolition of article 370 of the constitution, India’s relations with Pakistan have fallen to the lowest point in decades. After that, the Indian media played up that “the embrace of Beijing and Islamabad is obviously one of the main reasons why New Delhi needs friends from Washington.”. < / P > < p > the ideal is full, but in other words, whether India can count on “American friends” is still a question mark. In Biden’s task list, the mountain of domestic problems is obviously a higher priority. Abroad, European allies, East Asian allies, NATO, Middle East issues, climate issues, Iran’s nuclear issue They are also waiting for Biden to “turn a new page.”. Obviously, Biden has a lot more important things to deal with before India. < / P > < p > as for how much role Harris, the “daughter of India”, can play in US India relations, her Indian uncle, from the perspective of a senior defense scholar, said that Harris’s Indian lineage will not benefit India, “they will not avoid criticizing India and will not let India do whatever they want.”. < / P > < p > according to US media reports, Harris’s Indian blood may also become her “pain point”. “On the one hand, she represents the oppressed African Americans, and on the other hand, she represents the oppressor Brahman in the caste system of India,” the commentator said. Perhaps in order to get rid of this shackle of identity, in 2019, when article 370 of India’s constitution was abolished, Harris publicly said that the United States was very “concerned” about India’s potential human rights violations. < / P > < p > What’s more, the times have already changed. As Japan’s Asahi Shimbun said in an editorial after Biden’s inauguration, the downward trend of the sense of American existence may not be reversed. Leaders of all countries, including Japan and European countries, still need to be prepared. The era of relying on a particular big country is gone. Only by themselves can we be reliable. Japan and Europe, the closest allies of the United States, have begun to understand this truth after receiving Trump’s “education”. India, which is determined to be a “big country of sound and color”, may also want to pay “tuition fees”.
