New Delhi, June 3 (ANI): China could be placed under more pressure to deliver on key global issues in the wake of the United States and India seeking to forge stronger ties through their first-ever strategic dialogue being held in Washington on Thursday and Friday.

India, as a major power in Asia, has long placed its relationship with the US at its heart especially in regards to its rising regional influence, the China Daily quoted Hu Shisheng, a scholar of South Asia studies at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, as saying.

"The US has already held many such dialogues with China and Pakistan, and now India needs to verify its importance to the US through the same channel," Hu added.

"The US may hope to get from India what it failed to get from China, and through a strengthened cooperation with another Asian giant, pressure China more on many issues," Hu said. (ANI)
