An Indian Navy Warship Replenished American And Japanese Warships During Ongoing Joint Naval Exercises In The Bay Of Bengal, Thursday.

The Australian Navy Joined Indian, Japanese And American Warships For Annual Malabar Exercises That Began Tuesday In The Indian Ocean Marking The Growing Strategic Convergence Of The Four Countries Amid Rising Concerns About Chinese Assertiveness In Asia.     

India’s Decision To Include Australia For The Annual Drills Comes In The Wake Of A Push By Washington For Deeper Security Collaboration In The “Quad,” The Informal Group That Includes The United States, Japan, Australia And India As A Counter To China.
