Because of all this, the Chinese press is on edge about Obama's visit, which really means the government that controls that press is wary of the visit.
While American and Indian outlets have focused on improved military ties and nuclear deals...
... an op-ed in China's Xinhua says the U.S. and India aren't on the same page about many big issues like climate change, writing, "Economic growth and eradication of poverty is more urgent for Indian officials than cutting carbon emissions."
Another concern in the Chinese press: that Obama's visit is an attempt to further pit China and India against each other.
The U.S. and India have both taken China to task for pushing its borders, especially at sea. And China National Radio warned this week that "America would use India as a counterweight to China."
And the Global Times writes the visit is a trap to get India to help counter China's rise. But the article holds out some hope, urging China and India to move toward "cooperation, instead of contention."
