A Missed Opportunity?

A Missed Opportunity?

The Nehru–Zhou Enlai Summit of 1960

(p.100) Chapter Five A Missed Opportunity?
India and the Cold War

Srinath Raghavan

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines the claim that the Nehru-Zhou summit of April 1960 was a missed opportunity for settlement of the boundary dispute. It argues that the summit must be viewed in the context of wider developments in the Cold War as well as Indian politics. Drawing on fresh sources, the chapter contends that perceptions of China's territorial ambitions, India's relative weakness and shifting geopolitics of the Cold War are crucial to understanding the stance adopted by the Nehru government and the outcome of the summit.
