外文标题：Beijing failed to gain India’s support for Silk Road projects, says Chinese think-tank
BEIJING: China has failed to secure India’s backing for its mega Silk Road projects during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit last week even though his trip constituted a significant step to build mutual trust, a state-run Chinese think tank said.
“Modi’s first journey to China since he assumed office constitutes a significant step in building the Sino-India strategic mutual trust,” an article written by Liu Zongyi, research fellow of the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said.
“In the first place, the state heads of the two countries have strengthened mutual trust with practical actions,” it said stating that Modi has been given an “unprecedented welcome and reception in China”.
“Beijing received some return from New Delhi. Modi revealed at Tsinghua University that Chinese tourists would be able to apply for Indian e-visas, which, however, is not stated in the joint statement,” it said
Even India participates in Chinese silk road projects, it is unlikely for China to put India as the priority. There are over 60 countries, and China can leave India for the time being as it is not one year or two years project, it is min. decade or maybe 100 years project. China can focus on other priorities first, then come back to India later which is what India wants. Win-Win for both China and India.

PMs China visit made no progress. Investment announced may not see the light of the day. The same was the result of PMs Japan Visit and Obama’s India Visit.

India expected some break through in boarder issue and support for permanent seat in Security Council of UN. China didnot budge even an inch inspite best efforts by our PM. Any way thing do move slowly in such matters.
Unless border issues are resolved, how can they expect business growth

It is a good news for all the Indians, conveying the failure of India’s support to China for its so called “silk Project” It shows that India is having a very provident mind-set in protecting the India’s security/interest, etc. As per this article, the project is having proposition to traversing through POK’ which will be a chronic drawback to India. China cannot take India for ride over all its diplomatic strategies.
