Are PM Modi’s visits to foreign countries a benefit for India?
Mr Modi and his foreign trips are often trolled by the social media sites and some of the News channels these days. However the importance of his foreign trips can hardly be neglected. India is yet to benefit from his Foreign trips as of now. But it would be completely unfair on our side to judge him on his foreign policy in such a short span of time.
The world is moving towards complete globalization. Also, ‘International relations’ has become a very crucial element of good governance in any country. Our Prime Minister has identified the need of the hour in maintaining and strengthening these international bonds to ensure safety and security for all the countrymen in the long run. Since 2014, India has maintained very good relations with both these major countries- USA and Russia.
Russia is considered to be India’s most trusted ally. However, in recent years, Russia, at times, has raised concerns over India’s growing friendship with USA. However, Mr Modi’s strategic move to be in the good books of both these major powers, by befriending USA.
Mr. Narendra Modi is also planning to develop healthy relations with Afghanisthan. He is doing it by undertaking development programmes in the war torn country. It is a move that will help improve India’s image on a global platform thereby enabling us to voice our opinions strongly in the matters of fight against Terrorism. He also encouraged education for girls.
