India has effectively endorsed an internal US document that pitches it as a prominent player in Washington’s strategy to counterbalance China in the Indo-Pacific region.
“India and the US have a Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership and given our substantial bilateral agenda, our growing economic engagements and a convergence on strategic and security interests, both countries have a common interest in promoting security and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond,” said the MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava during the weekly media briefing here on Thursday.
“A strong India, in cooperation with like-minded countries, would act as a counterbalance to China,” said the paper.
