The basic question is how large a place does India have in Chinas foreign policy and what will that policy toward India be in the future. Sino- Indian relations have been examined in order to determine the most plausible objectives sought by Chinas strategy toward India. The United States, with no direct interest in the Indian subcontinent, other than keeping it from becoming a cockpit for great power conflict, has the opportunity to obtain an accommodation with China while the Soviet Union pursues a policy of containment of Peking. The unanswered question is the eventual cost to the United States of abdicating to the Soviet Union the responsibility for the major strategic military role around the periphery of China.
