India’s anxiety to sign bilateral trade deals with neighboring nations and regional organisations to boost her exports took another step forward when it pinned its hopes on acquiring a seat at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation‘s high table last week. The  Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), is a central Asian grouping dominated by China and Russia, and looked upon by many as an emerging counter-weight to NATO.

India’s decision to join the SCO comes close on the heels of New Delhi signing 34 deals with the Uzbekistan government,  admist  plans for consummating an FTA with ASEAN nations to create the worlds largest regional trade agreement and a call for peace following the Jasmine revolution. Joining the SCO will not only give India a leg up in being part of one of the world’s most regional powerful groups, but will also enhance the flow of Indian goods and energy resources into these vastly emerging economies. Afterall, the  SCO countries (full members and observers) comprise a hefty 25 percent of the Earth’s land area. In addition, membership of the SCO will align India’s regional security interests with that of Russia and China which are increasingly gaining power and prestige over central Asia.

It's against India's policy of joining any power blocs. This is against the spirit of neutrality. India must maintain good relations with all power blocs and not to side with any of them. India must maintain balance with West and East. This new fools who are making foreign policy decision had destroyed the five decades old policy of neutrality.

What if Pakistan joins a power block  that is against India?  For a country to survive it must not be
so inflexible in its foreign policy.

You have enemies surrounding you.  Is it not your government’s duty to do what it needs to protect the
country’s interests?
