By any standard, such a comment, that apportions virtually an equal role to both India and China, is extraordinary.

But ever since the two countries began discussing global security issues in 2000, China has grudgingly begun to revise its opinion. The Chinese have lost their older certainties and are reacting to the new environment they find themselves in.

China's paramount foreign policy priority is to manage its relationship with the US. This has proved tougher ever since the Republican administration took office last year.
