NEW DELHI, December 5. /TASS/. Moscow could create a basis for cooperation between Russia, India and China, Presidential Adviser Sergey Glazyev told Russian reporters in the Indian capital of New Delhi on Tuesday.
"All the integration projects, including the Eurasian Economic Union, the One Belt, One Road initiative and our idea of free trade with India, are open for everyone," he said on the sidelines of the second meeting of heads of Russian and Indian think tanks. "I my view, Russia’s role may be to create a basis integration suitable for all, so that China and India could work together with us to outline common development plans," Glazyev added.
"We should understand that all our sore spots came to be as a result of someone’s interference. We know that the conflict between India and Pakistan is rooted in their colonial past. Attempts to create a Pacific partnership… without Russia and China, as well as issues between Russia and Japan, are a result of interference by some third party - the English or the Americans, who still live in the past," the Russian presidential adviser noted.
"We need to build our future ourselves and I believe that the idea of great Eurasian partnership stipulates that we should all work together, certainly including India and China, with no exceptions," Glazyev said.
He noted that India was interested in participating in the modernization of the trans-European transport infrastructure. In particular, New Delhi takes interest in the construction of pipelines to Central Asia and Russia, as well as in rail services to Russia.
"Basically, if we tried to resolve all these common issues in Asia together without involving other parties, I think, they would be resolved in no time. And President Putin’s initiative about the great Eurasian partnership envisages that we should define our future together," Glazyev pointed out.
