Chinese diplomats and experts visiting the G8 summit for the “outreach
program” were upbeat about the first trilateral meet between Russia, China, and
India hoping that it will develop stuttering bilateral and strategic ties with
India and maintaining global peace.
The trilateral meeting
will occur for the first time on the sidelines of the G8 summit and focus on
their respective roles to positive impact regional peace and fight terrorism.
In the past, the Foreign Ministers of the three nations have met on the
sidelines of the United Nations’ meeting and in Vladivostok, Russia in June
2005 and this is the first time the top leaders are meeting together.
China has already established a strategic partnership with Russia which is
being developed well. India and Chine also upgraded their bilateral relations
to a strategic partnership level during Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao's visit to
India last year. While there have been numerous meetings at various levels, the
relationship has not developed into desirable levels.
