The White House released a 10-page document on Wednesday outlining the Trump administration’s strategy against China as of 2018-highlighting India’s role as a new ally in Asia.
The document contains some surprises and outlines plans to support allies and promote neighboring economies and counter-espionage activities.
However, the cooperation between the United States and India plays an important role in the evaluation.
It said: “A strong India cooperating with like-minded countries will maintain a balance with China.”
“China aims to dissolve US alliances and partnerships in the region. China will use these bonds to reduce the vacuum and opportunities created.”
The White House National Security Council report stated that the United States will “[a]I will build a quadrilateral security framework with India, Japan, Australia and the United States as the main hubs. “
The Trump White House released documents from one week before President-elect Biden took office. Critics accuse Biden of being naive during the rise of China, especially in terms of trade policy.
President Trump initially established a friendly personal relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, but this bond was deteriorated by a trade war and was designed to force the two sides to reach an agreement to reform China’s economic policy. Last year, Trump authorized sanctions on Chinese officials to eliminate Hong Kong’s political autonomy and abuse Uyghur Muslims. He also vowed to “decouple” the United States and China economically in response to fraud in the early COVID-19 data.
With Trump as president-elect, Biden has not spoken to Taiwan’s president because he won the election.
Trump visited India in February and hosted “Howdy, Modi!” in 2019. The rally was held in Houston, and 50,000 Indian Americans welcomed the visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi).
The strategy document stated that the United States will seek “[a]Accelerate the rise of India and enhance its capabilities as a net provider of security and major defense partners; consolidate a lasting strategic partnership with India, based on a strong Indian military, who can cooperate with the United States and our partners in the region Cooperate effectively to resolve common interests. “
A man who “behaved abnormally” on the Manhattan subway…
The document says that the United States should “[p]Cooperation with India’s artner on cyber and space security and maritime awareness [and] [e]xpand US-India intelligence sharing and analysis exchange. “
The vision of promoting the development of India also involves “[w]Orc[ing] Cooperate with India and Japan to provide funding for projects to improve regional connectivity between India and countries in the region. “
Although the strategy is outdated, it emphasizes other traditional US priorities, such as protecting Taiwan’s de facto independence from China and persuading North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons. Since the drafting of the document, due to espionage concerns, the Trump administration has conducted a successful campaign to discourage allies from using the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei to build 5G infrastructure.
The document says that the United States should “[e]Enable Taiwan to develop effective asymmetric defense strategies and capabilities to help ensure its safety, freedom from coercion, resilience, and the ability to engage China at its will
