    So, Guys in the modern world , What are the countries which can be considered as India's allies and what are the one which are its enemies..... what are the countries which fall under its protectorate..... We can debate about the future too....

    So right now , the Allies are..... unfortunately none as far as i know... Though in future we may have Japan, South Korea, US, France ,Australia, Russia, Israel as our allies

    And Friends right now are.... Israel, US, Japan, Russia, EU, Indonesia, Brasil, Middle eastern countries, and in future we may add even more to the list......

    Countries inside our protectorate... Right now only Nepal and Bhutan

    Enemies... Of course China and Pakistan while in the future it may expand to include Bangladesh(if we don't improve the ties)

    Countries which view us with suspicion and not as outright enemies will include Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the likes....


    So what do you think guys and why....?????

    A well framed question, sir. In this discussion, there should be an analysis of what the EU and NATO will be in coming years.

    Its funny you mention USA and Russia in the same line. USA and Russian foreign policy is like oil and water.

    That is the big problem for us, we need to balance US and Russia when ever we deal in foreign policy.

    We have no friends or allies.

    We have to depend on each other ie fellow Indian citizens.

    Agree but we must have political, economical and military support of other countries also. By hook or by crook.

    Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests.

    No we don't have a security pact yet with pacific rim countries. Bhutans defense is the responsibility of India. Nepal has a friendship treaty with India renewed recently. With Qatar we have a naval support agreement.

    India has no "allies" as such but good friends and in the rapidly changing dynamics of world relations, friends could become allies. We don't need to create enemies. We have two sworn enemies and it will remain that way.

    They both have the potential to be India's allies.... But the future of alliance with Russia depends on their own relations with china, If they become too close with them(to the point of alliance) then they will only be a friend and not an ally... But if their own fears about the chinese worsen, well who knows they might become one of our allies....

    And Yanks are not any better either, If they will try to be our allies as long as Chinese are the first threat and as long as we dont challenge their complete autonomy.... So when we start getting stronger(albeit very strong) we may not get so many favors or special treatment from them...

    Agreed on the first point

    we have two sworn enemies now.... In future, if we dont improve our ties with our neighbors Bangladesh and sri lanka they may start hating us even more
