The Russia-India-China Strategic Triangle: Prospects and Limits of Cooperation

Student: Leyla Turayanova

Supervisor: Sergey I. Lunev

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: International Relations (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2016

The idea of establishing a strategic triangle comprising Russia, India and China was first mooted by the erstwhile Russian Prime Minister Primakov as far back as 1998. Although the strategic triangle has not yet become a reality, the concept gave rise to the RIC (Russia-India-China) consultation mechanism. This paper explores evolution of the RIC format, examines recent trends in bilateral Sino-Russian, Sino-Indian and Indo-Russian relations, analyzes basic factors influencing the formation of the triangle, and discusses political and economic implications of the Russia-India-China partnership. Close attention is being paid to practical ways to enhance trilateral cooperation. The paper reveals that the establishment of the Moscow-Beijing-New Delhi triangle has strategic importance for Russia as it would boost its internal development and the role on the global scene.
