Japan Visit by US President Trump May 2019- Vexatious Geopolitical Overhang Analysed.–

Paper No. 6544                    Dated   27-May-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

US President Trump’s ongoing visit to Japan (May 25-28 2019) takes place when Japan singularly stands out contextually as US bulwark against vexatious geopolitical overhang of challenges posed to US by China, North Korea and South Korea which raises questions whether United States can afford ruffling Japan on trade issues particularly.

Russia’s Japan Policy on wrong side of Geo Political Realities:

Paper No. 6483              Dated 22-Jan-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Russia seems in 2019 to have got its geopolitical realties wrong going by the condescending and arrogant statements of Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov made at  an annual conference directed at Japan on the controversial issue of Japan’s claims on Russia to restore the Northern Islands which Russia had captured after Germany’s defeat in Europe in 1945 invoking Japan’s defeat subsequently.

Japan’s Security Challenges and its Deterrent Military Posture:

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Japan facing comprehensive threats from a militaristic China and its nuclear proxy North Korea has finally woken up from its Peace Constitution Article 9 slumber realising that the ‘China Threat’ to Japan’s National Security is real and embarked on review of reinforcing its deterrent capabilities both in terms of military hardware and operational doctrines.

Paper No. 6451 .          Dated 26-Oct-2018

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.

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.

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

Indo Pacific Treaty Organisation Emerges Asia Security Imperative in end-2017

Paper No. 6325                                 Dated 05-Dec-2017

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Indo Pacific Asia as a geopolitical conception replacing the earlier concept of Asia Pacific has evolved markedly since 2008-2009 synchronous with China’s switch from exercise of ‘Soft Power’ to ‘Hard Power’ in Chinese strategic formulations in its Asian strategies which since then singularly are characterised by aggressive military brinkmanship.
