Commenting on the impact of COVID on US Election, diplomacy as a whole, Prof Mattoo said: ”I think in terms of India, clearly there is bipartisan support for better relations with India. In terms of the larger international system, I think there are concerns about China and China’s recent belligerence which cut across the partisan divide. In terms of fundamentals, I don’t think there’ll going to be differences. Yes, in terms of nuance, in terms of style and perhaps in terms of little substance, there will be differences…but I would say whether it would be Biden-Harris or whether it is Trump– Pence, you will see more continuity in US foreign policy than can be imagined”.

Discussing the recent India-US 2+2 Dialogue Richard Rossow said: ”We do recognize the threats that India very much recognizes. The Indian Ocean has quickly become consistory territory. When we look at the neighboring countries–Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan, China is there…China is picking up its activities..they got more ship sailings and who knows where this could be leading to. That’s where I think the great continuation and kind of expansion is the US apertures to see. When we talk to the Indo Pacific, it’s a balanced narrative. It’s not just what India can do in the Pacific…but what the US can also do”.

Covering India-US relation under the new administration on–tackling China, terrorism, and climate change, Dhruva Jaishankar said: ”On the strategic side, what and how the new China policy is going to be will depend on the outcome of the election…some things to watch out for–Russia Policy and West Asia and Middle East Policy. On the bilateral side, trade and immigration are two big issues. When it comes to climate issues, the ‘Democratic’ administration would be more cooperative. Technology transfer is another topic that parties (Democratic Party, Republican Party, and the US Congress) in improving relations with India.
