‘Obama’s India visit aimed at containing China’

Obama’s arrival was a breaking news on state-run CCTV which showed live feed of him being received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the airport with questions on how it is going to impact China and whether it was part of the US strategy to contain Beijing’s growing influence in the region.

Highlighting the significance of Obama’s visit from China’s point of view, Prof Wang Yewei of the School of international relations at the Renmin University told CCTV that Obama became the first US President visiting India for the second time and the visit was also aimed at leaving his diplomatic legacy.

Also from US point of view, India is the key for America’s so called Indo-Pacific strategy aimed at containing China besides balancing Beijing’s Silk Road push into the Indian Ocean, he said.
