Biden administration will continue to expand bilateral partnership with India, China is the big reason!
Washington. According to a report in the US Congress, President Joe Biden 's administration may continue to expand bilateral partnership with India and concerns about China's growing economic and military power in the region is a major factor behind the intensification of these ties. According to the latest report on Indo-US relations released by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), "Many predict that the administration will focus more on domestic developments, including human rights, in India, but due to the greater need for balance than China's broader policies." Not likely to change.
The report, which is traditionally prepared for US lawmakers, said, "Independent observers widely believe that the Biden administration can continue to expand bilateral ties (with India) and that most people are concerned about China's growing interest in China." Concerns about the economy and military might are considered factors to strengthen these ties." The CRS report, prepared by independent experts, is not considered an official report of the US Congress. The US Congress has been making many such reports public. The report has been prepared by a number of experts from South Asia under the leadership of Alan Kronstadt. It states,
The US, Japan, India and Australia had in 2017 shaped the pending proposal to form a quadrilateral alliance or 'quad' to counter China's aggressive behavior in the Indo-Pacific region. President Joe Biden held digital talks with leaders of the group, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the Quad's first summit in March. In it, Biden said that an open and free Indo-Pacific region for all is essential and that the US is committed to working with its partners and allies to achieve stability in the region. China is involved in territorial disputes in the South China Sea and the East China Sea. It claims sovereignty over the entire South China Sea. However, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Taiwan claim the opposite.
