New Delhi: Tukish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in New Delhi today, on his first ever visit to since a coup threat in Ankara lat year. India on the other hand has shown confidence to make distinction between "good friends that has stood by it and the message is for Turkey to heed.
However, in another demonstration of India's masculine foreign policy, it subtly sent a message to Turkey over its support to Pakistan's position on Kashmir. Just before the Turkish President arrived in Delhi, Indian vice President paid tribute to victims of Armenian genocide which is sensitive part of Turkey, and less than 24 hours ago before his visit India will be hosting the President of Cyprus.
Turkey is also working on infrastructure development in PoK and India would convey its protest, sources said.
The Turkish President, too late to call for his visit has got a taste of the change templated by Indian Foreign Policy, where the South Block would not shy away from perusing its national interests more assertively.
Earlier, Vice President Hamid Ansari went to Armenia and visited the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex to pay tribute to American Genocide victims on April 25. After paying tribute, he said "This is tragedy, indescribable things done to humans by humans."
'Armanian genocide' is said to be the first genocide of the 20th century by American historians, a connection countered by Turks by Turks by calling it inter-communal warfare and wartime relocation.
By recalling the American genocide, New Delhi is provoking Ankara that has often threatened retaliation against Armenians diaspora pushing to recall the killings as Genocide in their respective aliments.
While the second message would be to meet Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades for whom India rolled out the red carpet and it would be hard for the Turk's to ignore. PM Narendra Modi have repeated its support for the sovereignty of Cyprus.
