India and US have been moving forward in improving their strategic relationship. India’s nuclear programs, the disputed borders, the prospective strategic convergence in India-US relations, the Doklam,Tibet issue and India’s announcement to conduct naval exercises in South China Sea will determine Sino-Indian relations in near future. It was only in late 1998, that India could become friendlier with US. Particularly after 9/11, India and US have further strengthened their partnership intending to fight against Global terrorism. All short of terrorism always find some links, in Pakistan, which is openly supported by China. China is also friendly with US, certainly for economic reasons, as it is to prevent the India-US partnership aimed at containing China. Despite that China has not refrained itself from providing military assistance and nuclear technology to Pakistan, because as per them, a weak Pakistan would raise India’s dominance in the region. India needs a better relationship with US, to contain China’s hegemony in South Asia and domination in Indian Ocean Regions.
The US, too requires India’s assistance along with Japan and Australia to create a power formation in South Asia, that would assist each others in containing and engaging China. Chinese too require US assistance for suppressing India’s influence in the region..
