In this regard, the old territorial disagreements are fading given the new need to find opportunities for coexistence in the large Indo-Pacific marine space”, Head of the Center for Asia Pacific Studies at IMEMO RAS Alexander Lomanov told Kommersant.

“This is an encouraging trend for Russia because now Moscow will not have to make a difficult choice between its two strategic partners – China and India. Levelling out the contradictions between the two partners of the Moscow – Beijing – Delhi triangle will make it a more efficient and capable structure, though, in the long run, the emerging rapprochement between China and India may reduce the role of Moscow,” the expert noted.
