Japan-India Summit Significant when Geopolitically Viewed:

Paper No 6455              Dated 4-Nov-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s shadows hovered ominously over the Japan-India Summit 2018 even though not explicitly mentioned by name as Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and Indian PM Narendra Modi confabulated at Tokyo on October 29 2018 for their annual dialogue. This is borne out by the contents of the Joint Japan-India Vision Statement 2018 and the summations enshrined.

Japan- Enhancing Security & Military Profile in Indo-Pacifc:

Paper No. 6451 .          Dated 26-Oct-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Japan imperceptibly but surely is engaged in enhancing its security and military profile in a comprehensive manner which augurs well for overall Indo Pacific security and stability in what can be described as a joint but undeclared collaboration of the United States, Japan and India to provide an existential counterweight to China’s worrying military rise generating turbulence on its peripheries.

China's Political Outreach to India 2018 Contextualised By China-US Trade War

Paper No. 6416 :           Dated 29-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s political reachout to India, markedly in 2018, needs necessarily to be analysed in the context of the increasing China-US Trade War. Chinese present reachout to India is transactional and not incorporated in China’s Grand Strategy and India would be well advised not to make things easier for China by siding with it by perceptional proximity to China against the United States.

South China Sea's Annexation By China and Japan's Strategic & Economic Security

Paper No. 6406                            Dated 10-Aug-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China’s forcible annexation of virtually the entire maritime expanse and consequent militarisation of the South China Sea in the last decade has generated grave regional and global complications. Japan as an Asian power contender with China and the nation whose strategic and economic survival is critically dependent on the sea-lanes that traverse the South China Sea gets logically drawn into South China Sea conflictual dynamics.

United States Pillars of Asian Security 2018:

Paper No. 6385                 Dated 4-June-2018
By Dr Subhash Kapila
United States strategic embedment in Asian security can only be successfully effective when US policy in 2018 reflects that India and Japan are the pillars of Asian security and therefore a US “Strategic Imperative” and not a policy choice. Implicit in the foregoing is that the United States must extend strategic equitability in its relationships with India and Japan.
 

Chinese President’s 2018 Reset Policies towards India and Japan analysed

Paper No. 6374                               Dated 07-Apr-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s main thrust in 2018 of resetting China’s relations with India and Japan arises not from some heavenly divinations but stand laced with crucial geopolitically and strategically calibrated end-aims to create a breach in China’s hemming-in by US-led Indo Pacific security template
