China’s Global Times publishes an article praising Narendra Modi as “India’s Nixon”; Japan’s Shinzo Abe opts for Twitter diplomacy, honoring the prime minister elect as one of his three follows; old-school Putin just picks up the phone and calls in his congratulations; and the White House makes an awkward announcement that Modi is welcome to visit the United States anytime – let’s just forget about the whole visa ban.

World leaders have been lining up to congratulate Modi, and with good reason. After a decade of Congress rule, Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been swept into power in a resounding victory. The BJP has its own unique ideas on what’s best for the country, which could spell major changes for India’s foreign policy.
