India And Japan: An Alliance To Contain China And Strengthen The Indo-Pacific

India’s foreign minister, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, has done a lot of diplomatic work these days and has visited some key countries in East Asia. More precisely, on March 5 and 6, he visited South Korea, and immediately afterwards, Japan from March 6 to 8.

In both democratic and pro-Western Asian countries, the first man of Indian diplomacy sought to strengthen above all security and economic cooperation, as well as political ties. In the simplest terms, it could be said that the Republic of India is looking for partners to contain the People’s Republic of China, its biggest rival in Asia, especially in the Indo-Pacific region. India’s relations with Japan are particularly significant as the two countries share concerns about China’s increasingly assertive economic and military moves in South and East Asia.
