On Thursday, India's prime minister, Narendra Modi comes to Washington and will address a joint session of Congress. There are a lot of expectations for this visit, as Washington really wants India to be a strategic partner in its China containment strategy. But India has its own interests, and while it is more than happy to work with the U.S. on trade, economic development, and even military tech and industrial capabilities, it has taken its own course on China and as we know, Ukraine. So what, if anything, will both sides get out of this week's visit? Quincy Institute scholar Sarang Shidore sets the table for us, on the relationship that the U.S. wants with India, and the relationship that actually exists.
In the first segment, Kelley and Dan talk about the building pressure on NATO members to come up with a blueprint for Ukraine membership — or a non-NATO arrangement that is the next best thing to Article 5.
