Modi walks tightrope between US-Japan and China at G20

Critics say Indian PM is trying to please everyone before election

NEW DELHI -- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to join U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe in the first such trilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires this week, amid escalating U.S.-China trade tensions.

Modi, who arrives in the Argentinian capital Thursday for the two-day summit starting on Friday, is also scheduled to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. It will be their fourth meeting this year, as both sides aim to build trust and establish common ground.
