外文标题：Obama's India visit a superficial rapprochement: China
BEIJING: US President Barack Obama's unprecedented second visit to India is a "superficial rapprochement" given their hard differences on issues like climate change and nuclear energy cooperation, a wary China said on Sunday as it kept a close watch on the outcome of talks.
Obama's arrival in New Delhi was sort of breaking news on state-run CCTV which showed live feed of him being received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the airport with questions on how it is going to impact China and whether it was part of US strategy of containment of Beijing's growing influence in the region.
State-run Xinhua news agency in a commentary, said, "The shortened three-day visit is more symbolic than pragmatic, given the long-standing division between the two giants, which may be as huge as the distance between them."
China's Sour Grapes theory is understandable. I can only ask them to apply some 'Malam' for their burns. China would immediately visit Paakis and pledge to buy 10tons of Frog-legs every year, I know... :P

Chinese news agency is right. There are differences and they will take time to resolve. And a common ground will be found, Just like there are differences with China. But those differences did not prevent Modi from giving an equally strong Welcome to Chinese head and his wife just about less than 6 months back.

There was a time when Mr.Obama was not even issuing a US visa to Mr.Modi..Now look how much they are happy to see each other. Changing times, changing Power equations

China is neither concerned nor afraid of growing relations with US. Stop this nonsense. They are simply pragmatic and realists.
