President Moon is visiting India after a recent tour of Russia in an effort to restart momentum in the bilateral relationship between the Korea and India. But this time the entire geopolitical situation is entirely different than it was when the previous two administrations engaged India about trade and investment. Now trade itself has become a contested topic and the entire order of East Asia has been remade by the rapidly shifting relations between China, the United States, Russia, Japan and even the once-stable European Union. What are we do make of the potential for President Moon’s meeting with President Modi and what can we do to move cooperation in a positive direction?
