Allies & Axes!

Russia, presumably, is reluctant to join the US-led Axis made to protect the Pacific Ocean, as well the Indian Ocean. It may be the reason behind Moscow’s repeated action of maintaining a safe distance with the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (also known as the Quad or Asian NATO), which is an informal strategic forum between the US, Japan, Australia and India or a diplomatic and military arrangement between the four countries in order to counter the growing economic and military power of China in the Indo-Pacific Region. According to diplomatic sources, a new Axis is all set to be formed for strengthening Maritime Trade and Strategic co-operation in Asia.

Sources close to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs recently revealed that India, Japan and Russia would soon meet in order to shape the plan. India, which plays a lead role in this venture, hinted that the discussions would be held at the Track-Two Stage, first…

Experts are of the opinion that it is India’s special strategy to include Russia, popularly known as a close ally of China, in the game-plan. The South Asian nation has always claimed that the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean are open, generous and transparent waterways in Asia. New Delhi has already urged Moscow to join the efforts to maintain transparency in this region. During his recent meeting with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov, Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla discussed this particular issue, and informed Morgulov that India wanted Russia to boost co-operation with other nations on this sea route. As the proposed move would serve interests of both the countries, the issues of ensuring peace, stability and economic prosperity of the Indo-Pacific Region would certainly benefit Russia. The Kremlin has reportedly agreed to join the initiative.

According to Strategic Experts, the Emergence of a new Axis, along with the existing Quad, would make it difficult for China to exercise its supremacy in the Indo-Pacific Region
