The Chinese media seems to have been in complete distress. Just read out what the Chinese state media Xinhua is saying -
The Chinese state media Xinhua has said that obama’s journey to india was “more symbolic than pragmatic.”
It elaborates further –this visit would fail to bridge vast differences between the two countries over major issues including environment and food security.
Lets see what the article says – “For one thing, Mr. Obama’s “Pivot to Asia” policy has been distracted or even derailed by the undying conflicts in the Middle East and Ukraine”
“He [Obama] needs this trip to tell Capitol Hill and his supporters that his administration can make progress on important relations. More frankly, he needs India to side with him.
“For India, a closer relationship with the United States is compatible with its multi-faceted diplomacy and could be commercially beneficial.”
“Three days are surely not enough for Mr. Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to become “true friends,” given their hard differences on climate change, agricultural disputes and nuclear energy cooperation.”
