China’s perception of India has moved from utter despise to benign neglect to reluctant acceptance of its importance as the world discussed a rising India in recent years. Finally, the attention India is getting from the US, Japan and the ASEAN upsets China and seen as impacting on its formidable position in Asia-Pacific. China does not bother so much about India as such, but fears the role of the United States and Japan to prop up New Delhi to counter Beijing’s influence in the region.Beijing always tried, though without success, to keep New Delhi out from the regional arrangements and the evolving security architecture of the Indo-Pacific region. China’s perception of India’s Look East Policy, therefore, appeared to be negative and hostile as New Delhi became active in the region asserted its rights in the the South China Sea and deepened its engagement with Washington, Tokyo, and Hanoi.
