After Talking Peace With China, India Steps Up Military Ties With Japan


In a move likely to irk China, India and Japan significantly stepped up defence ties a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and China’s President Xi decided to move beyond the Doklam stand-off to step up border security cooperation. Beijing sees Japan as a regional military rival with which it has territorial disputes. India and Japan have a “Special Strategic and Global Partnership.”

The expansion of military ties between the two countries comes during the visit of Union minister Arun Jaitley to Japan on his last trip as Defence Minister before he hands over the portfolio to his successor. Nirmala Sitharaman takes full-time charge of the Ministry tomorrow. While in Japan, Mr Jaitley visited a Japanese Navy base and ‘flew’ a Japanese P-1 aircraft simulator.

The Indian and Japanese armies will plan joint anti-terrorism exercises for the first time next year. Read More…
