Watch the full video (above) of the discussion between Ambassador Shyam Saran, Srinath Raghavan and Zorawar Daulet Singh, where they analyse the complicated relationship between India and China.

As the dust settles from the last year's Doklam Standoff between India and China, relationship between the two neighbours has entered a state of flux. Even as domestic political priorities have come to the fore in both countries, India and China are discovering new spots of friction and struggling to evolve a sustainable framework of cooperation.

 Against the backdrop of the latest diplomatic efforts by both sides to put the relationship on an even keel, Centre for Policy Research's (CPR) in-house experts on Chinese and Indian foreign policy consider the geopolitics, strategy and economics underpinning this new conjuncture in India-China relations and its implications for the two countries, for Asia and beyond. 

Ambassador Shyam Saran is a senior fellow at CPR, a former foreign secretary and has served as the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Nuclear Affairs and Climate Change, as well as chairman of the National Security Advisory Board.

Srinath Raghavan is a senior fellow at CPR. He is also a senior research fellow at the India Institute at King’s College, London.

Zorawar Daulet Singh is an author and foreign affairs analyst. He is a Fellow at the CPR. He is also an Adjunct Fellow with the Institute of Chinese Studies and a Visiting Fellow at the Forum for Strategic Initiative.
