Thunder and thunder from previous visits to India
Xinhua News Agency, New Delhi, February 26 (international observation) and extended its visit to Indian thunder and rain. Xinhua News Agency reporter Zhao Xu, the US President, ended his visit to India on the 25th.During the visit, the United States and India reached a compromise on trade disputes.  Analysts pointed out that in the context of the US election year, alternately choose to complete the first visit to India since taking office at this time, the political considerations behind it.India wants a gradual opportunity to resolve the trade issue with the United States, but the differences between the two sides are obvious and I am afraid that they cannot be bridged in the short term.  Unsolved trade differences The United States is currently India’s second largest trading partner.Indian Prime Minister Modi hopes to boost the domestic economic development by meeting with the reorganization, persuading him to abandon the increase in tariffs, and immediately restoring India’s GSP scheme.  On the 25th, after a joint statement with Modi after ancient talks in New Delhi, the two sides agreed to quickly conclude trade talks, but a series of “limited trade agreements” expected by some media were not mentioned.  Modi said that India and the United States will continue negotiations on bilateral trade and strive to achieve good results.Reached a consensus, the focus of the United States and India is to establish a fair, reciprocal long-term economic relationship, and the teams of both sides “have made progress in reaching a comprehensive trade agreement” but “have not yet reached an agreement.”It has also once again openly opposed India’s “unfair” high tariffs on US goods.  India and the United States have begun trade talks since the second half of last year, but have slowly reached an agreement.According to US media reports, the two sides have significant differences on agricultural products, medical equipment, digital trade, and tariff increases.  In the opinion of analysts, the absence of U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer in this visit gradually reflects a breakthrough in the trade negotiations between the two sides, which also shows that a trade agreement may not necessarily be reached quickly.Before the US presidential election in November, it is difficult for the US-India trade talks to make progress.  Indian public opinion pointed out that no matter whether the two sides can finally sign a trade agreement, India’s demand for the US to restore 青岛夜网 the replacement of the GSP may be difficult to achieve.  After the United States paid more for less, the only gain this time in this trip was arms sales.The joint statement said that India and the United States have signed an arms sales agreement worth more than $ 3 billion, and the United States will sell 24 “MH-60 Romeo” and 6 “AH-64E Apache” gunships to India.  In the past few years, the United States has been trying to win India in its strategic layout in the Asia-Pacific region. In fact, it has become India’s “primary defense partner”.India hopes to strengthen its defense relationship with the United States to enhance its own branch in Asia and even internationally.  However, an anonymous source in the Indian military revealed that there are serious differences between the military and the government over arms procurement.The military believes that, as a traditional weapon supplier, Russia reduces competition because weapons-related technology transfer is the focus of the arms purchase contract, while the United States only sells products to India, but keeps a close eye on technology transfer.  Analysts point out that the United States gives India more and less, and India’s independence is more prominent under Modi’s administration. It is difficult for the United States to really draw the Indian team.  This year is the election year in the United States. The arms sales contracts and the “intimate relationship” shown with Modi are conducive to competitive re-election.However, criticisms of the Modi government have emerged in India, noting that India has not been too involved in domestic affairs such as the US elections.(Participating reporter: Xiong Maoling)
