NEW DELHI: China is using the Wuhan coronavirus in the same way it used its economic heft for geopolitical gain. Today, the world is reaching out to China for help even though it is responsible for the pandemic sweeping the world, says Arun K Singh, India’s former ambassador to the US and Israel. In an exclusive chat with Surya Gangadharan on StratNews Global’s flagship Talking Point show, he said an inward looking America under Donald Trump and its incoherent response to the coronavirus, stands in sharp contrast to Beijing’s aggression. With globalisation now in disarray, India will have to tread carefully with friends and allies while shoring up its strategic game against China.
