Episode 129: Is India the Linchpin of the Evolving World Order?

Ep. 129

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, attention quickly turned to India to determine whether it would condemn the attack and support western sanctions. This week, we are joined by Jeff Smith, a research fellow at Heritage’s Asian Studies Center with a focus on South Asia, for a deep dive on U.S.-India relationship in light of the war in Ukraine and China’s growing threat. 


How did India develop its longstanding relationship with Russia? What does the war and the “no limits” partnership with China mean for that historical partnership? How can the U.S. continue to strengthen its relationship with India and how should the U.S. think about India’s position in the democratic world? These questions and more are addressed on this week’s episode of Fault Lines.
