Dialogue 11/08/04 India looks east

08-04-2011 22:23 BJT

India has long accused China of formulating a String of Pearls strategy along the Indian Ocean. New Dheli is not happy with the all weather ties between Islamabad and Beijing. So, the Indians decide to help Vietnamese navy get modernized and seek to establish the Indian forward military presence in Vietnam in what is called their Look East Policy. The Indian ambitions draw praises from Washington immediately. Japan looks relieved since all of these countries are reluctant to see the rise of a strong Chinese military. In today's discussion we are pleased to have Professor Tao Wenzhao and Mr. Brandon Blackburn-Dwyer. In a satellite interview, we shall be talking to Professor MD Nalapad with the Manapal University in New Dheli in a satellite interview.
In international politics, realists seek balance of power regardless of ideological differences. Vietnam and India, locked up in geopolitical and territoral animosity with the PRC, begin to forge their own alliance although India still declares itself to be leader of the non-align movement. Will the Asian version of a NATO be set up to antagonize China? This is likely to trigger arms race and add to the regional instability. Who will benefit from the growing mistrust and confrontation? A very difficult answer, but one thing is sure, the military industrial complex in all countries  concerned will receive more orders.
Under discussion:
1. India Looks East
2. India enlists Vietnam in containing China
3. Japan and US Stand Behind India
4. What is String of Pearls Stragety
