According to the Times of India, Dean Thomson, deputy assistant secretary in the US State Department, said that countries that have a dispute with China have to be brought to a stage. As China has increased or increased its influence through devious policy, it has to be stopped. We have a special look at the border countries of China. Washington is increasing diplomatic pressure on China. The US Secretary of State led a meeting of foreign ministers of India, Japan and Australia earlier this month. This meeting in Tokyo can be seen as a possible fight against China’s growing assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific region.
At the same time, next month India will host the biggest naval exercise Malabar with the United States, Japan and Australia, on which China objected. Beijing said this month that the US accusations against China put an end to the ‘Cold War mentality’. At the same time, on the visit of the US Secretary of State, Indian officials said that during the visit, Mike Ponpio will be accompanied by Defense Secretary Mark Oslo. India is expecting another military signature among the US, which will make it easier for India to reach the sensing American satellite. An Indian official said, “There is more potential in our defense cooperation.”
On the India-China dispute, the Trump administration believes that steps were deliberately taken from China in eastern Ladakh to provoke India. In today’s time China talks about China but at the ground level its intention is not clear. If China’s intentions were clear, it would not do any such thing as permanent construction on LAC.
