India’s Inescapable Strategic Imperative 2020- The ‘Quad’ Option

Paper No. 6551       Dated 20-Mar-2020

By Dr Subhash Kapila

India for all purposes is virtually a full-fledged and active proponent of the Indo Pacific strategic grouping ‘The QUAD’ comprising United States, Japan, Australia and India but India imparts it with muted diplomatic tones so as not to raise China’s hackles against which ‘The QUAD’ is pointedly intended at and structured for in operational concepts.
