    Research Fellow, Dr. Jagannath Panda's article ‘Why the US is ill-suited to mediate India-China border dispute’ has been published in Responsible Statecraft, an online portal of Quincy Institute for Responsible Starcraft, Washington DC, USA, on October 15, 2020.

    The piece argues that the U.S. mediation in the India-China boundary dispute would have largely detrimental consequences for both India and China. Beyond reasons that stem from claims of resolving sovereign disputes bilaterally, the unlikelihood of easy compromises from either of the three leaders- Modi, Xi and Trump, the changing geopolitical order, and growing domestic economic and political concerns in all three countries render any third-party mediation between the two Asian giants highly unlikely — let alone by the United States.
