The U.S. foreign policy has undergone a change in which engagement with countries will be done on issues with little or no trade-off among them. What does this change mean for India-U.S. relations? 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-
  • In the intro, mention the various issues on which the U.S. has been dealing on a parallel line without trade-offs between them.
  • In the body, mention the changes in the foreign policy of the U.S. in which issues such as trade, security, human rights, climate change each is dealt with separately without compromise on one for the other. For India, it means that countries are no longer designated as adversaries or allies instead engagement would be multifaceted.
  • Conclude by stating that India needs to take into account this changing foreign policy stance of the U.S. and can no longer bank on being the ally of the U.S. on every issue.
