The global uncertainty unleashed by U.S. President Donald Trump has two of Asia's biggest economies going on the diplomatic offensive. For India, the aim is to fight protectionism and continue reaping the benefits of globalization. For China, it is a welcome opportunity to play the part of responsible superpower. Both, however, are keen to win reliable allies as they confront a world that seems to grow more unpredictable by the day.

NEW DELHI Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resumed diplomatic activities after a six-month hiatus, visiting three Western European countries and Russia to rally support for globalization and push back against a polarized U.S.-China world order.
