BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- India has come under the diplomatic spotlight as a country positioned to tilt the regional power balance, with the leaders of China and Russia as well as the U.S. and Japan holding three-way meetings at the Group of 20 summit here.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin met on Friday, agreeing to deepen their cooperation in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's unilateralism.
