During the visit Mr. Trump envisioned a regional leadership role for India not confined to South Asia but extending beyond.
India is one of the Asian countries where Trump can see a reflection of his own protectionism.
India can only seek to make the withdrawal process more drawn-out and Kabul’s role in the negotiations more robust.
President Trump was at his restrained best in India, conscious that he was held in high esteem by the Indian public. (Some 56% of Indians view him positively, which exceeds his favorable rating back home.)
The fate of the treaty now depends on the political will of the United States establishment.
Trump has shown his supporters with his India trip that their leader is respected on an international stage, and Modi was able to show his supporters that the world's biggest power is with him.
The bedrock of the relationship is simple enough: India and the U.S. share a remarkably similar vision of how they would like the world to evolve in the coming decades.
[I]f Pakistan sets its own house in order, reduces dependency on the IMF and takes care of the FATF issue, this would deny Washington the use of its financial leverage and enhance Pakistan’s bargaining position.
Trump will be in India on a standalone visit, meaning he won’t be covering any other nation in the region on this trip.
Political marketing has never been a bed of roses; it has always been able to break away from or bypass societal and legal constraints.
