Myanmar: India’s Tough Choices

Myanmar: India's Tough Choices

On 26 July 2021, Ambassador Rajiv Bhatia, Distinguished Fellow, Foreign Policy Studies Programme, spoke at a live Q&A session on Myanmar’s Generals and Democracy: India’s Tough Choices with Surya Gangadharan at StratNews Global. Ambassador Bhatia discussed the tough choices Myanmar presents for India, especially after the generals seized power from the democratically elected government of Myanmar in February 2021. With China challenging India’s influence in Myanmar and the horrendous abuses committed by the Myanmar military, India tries to balance between addressing issues and the need to stay on good terms with the generals.
