Q. The Indian Government has invested significant diplomatic capital in bilateral engagement .However Regional multilateral agreement are equally important. Discuss. Comment

Model Answer:

The Indian Government has invested significant diplomatic capital in bilateral engagement .However Regional multilateral agreement are equally important. Discuss.

Regional multilateral agreement are equally important because of the following reasons:

1) Commonality of threats.
2) Provide avenues for bilateral discussion on the sidelines.

Though India’s attitude towards regional multilateral agreements is not significant in the following manner:

1) One Belt One Road: Because of China – Pakistan economic corridor , India did not join.
2) Shangri-la dialogue: India has attended 12 out of 16 meets since its inception in 2002.This year India was conspicuous by its absence.It missed out an important avenue to put across its view due to absence of full –time defence minister.

However it is siginificant in this manner as well:

1) Become a member of SCO: Expressed desire for enhanced connectivity and trade exchanges and also pledges his commitment in the collective fight against terrorism.
2) Own version of multilateral dialogues : through Raisina dialogue and Gateway of India dialogue

Thus it could be seen that India has balanced approach towards both of them.
