A Reboot at G7


APLN member C. Raja Mohan wrote about PM Modi’s first trip abroad in his third term and argued that it is a chance to re-energise relations with the West.

In his first trip abroad during his third term as prime minister, Narendra Modi will attend the summit of the leading Western nations — the so-called Group of Seven — in Fasano, Italy. A significant improvement in the relations with the US and Europe is one of the more important legacies of Modi’s first 10 years in office. The PM will now have a chance to reconnect and reboot the relations with the leaders of the West at the meeting of the G7 which is marking its 50th anniversary this year.

The G7 summit will also showcase the growing conflict between the West on the one hand and the Sino-Russian alliance on the other. This presents major new opportunities as well as challenges to Indian diplomacy. Early next month, Modi will travel to Kazakhstan to join the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. He will look to engage with the Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
