Indias Foreign Relations-2007 Documents (Parts I & II)

Avtar Singh Bhasin (Editor)
Synopsis "The series India's Foreign Relations, showcasing, as the name implies, documents of India's foreign relations is published annually. Since its launch in 2005, volumes for 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 have made their appearance. The present is, therefore, the 6 in the series.

A look at the contents would show that the debate on India -- US Civil Nuclear Energy Cooperation Agreement dominated the foreign policy discourse during the year. The position taken by the Left Parties on the subject was an important element in this debate. Since the Left Parties provide outside support to the Government in Parliament, their stand on this vital policy matter, impacted the domestic policies of the country. The Bharatiya Janata Party, as the principal opposition party and the party which initiated the process of strategic cooperation with The United States when it was in power, under the innocuous heading "Next Step in the Strategic Partnership" also found fault with the proposed agreement on several counts.

The documents have been arranged thematically, region-wise and chronologically. A large number of agreements of diverse nature were signed with various countries during high level visits abroad and in India in the course of the year. Considering the increasing bulk of the collection, agreements that have bearing on strategic and foreign policy issues alone have been included here. However, in the case of neighbouring countries, as per past practice, all agreements even of non-political and non-strategic nature would be found, since India's relations with its neighbours need to be covered comprehensively."
