After hearing the things that America has said in praise of India, China is sure to get chilly again. The US has not only named India as its major ally in the Hindi-Pacific region, but has also recognized that India is emerging as a major power in the world. The administration of US President Joe Biden described India as its most important ally in the Indo-Pacific region and said it welcomed India’s rise as a major power in the world and its role as a watchman of the region.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price said at the press conference, “India is an important partner of the US in the Indo-Pacific region.” We welcome India’s rise as a major power in the world and its role as a sentinel of the region. ‘ Earlier, US Secretary of State Antoine Blinken, India’s Foreign Minister S.K. Jaishankar was interviewed on Tuesday and the two leaders discussed the situation in Myanmar and other issues with common concerns.
Blinken expressed concern over the military coup in Myanmar and also discussed the importance of the rule of law and the democratic process. The two leaders discussed regional developments, including the importance of Indian and US cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. “Both sides hoped to increase regional cooperation through the Quad and to meet challenges such as the Kovid-19 epidemic and climate change,” Price said. In response to a question, Price said the US and India’s “overall global strategic partnership is multifaceted as well as broad.”
This comment of the US in the context of India is also important because China has been showing its grandeur in the South China Sea. The United States is considering India as its important partner to end this blight of China in the Indo-Pacific region. This is the reason why China is so uncomfortable about the quad, but the new leadership of America is in favor of pushing this entrenchment. After the talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden on Monday night, there is also a possibility of a quad meeting soon. In the statement issued by the US on the conversation, the quad has been specially mentioned.
A group of four countries from India, America, Australia, Japan have been advocating for a rule-based system in the South China Sea and the Indian Pacific region. China sees this as a front against itself. Recently, Russia also raised questions about this alliance. However, India has been clear that the quad should not be viewed as a barricade against any country. Sources said the new US President Joe Biden wants to unite the four major democratic forces in the Indo-Pacific region. America wants to set its endo-Pacific policy on the basis of Quad. Sources say that an online meeting may be held soon.
