Interesting. US relations with India are usually soured by the concern that India will go communist or have strong socialist tendencies. There's
been a bit of a thaw recently tho, hopefully this won't freeze things up again.
It might also be sensible to see this in the light of other Russian-Chinese military exercises, and too see that as a possible counter-weight to US
involvment in central asia, which is traditionally a 'geo-strategic' powerbase of the Russians.
