A New Delhi based think tank has studied the term "strategic partnership" through India's agreements. ++ India has signed over a dozen partnership agreements in the last decade ++ The Russia-India partnership was rated the most valuable overall; trade relations with the US hold the most potential. ++ The benefits are threefold: political-diplomatic ties, defense ties, and economic relations. ++ The study however ignores the complexity of global strategic partnerships such as the impact of the US-Pakistan relationship on India.
