first_imgFrom US perspective, China, Russia and India are allFrom US perspective, China, Russia and India are all threatening its status as a superpower. The US does not want to see a stronger India, it said.”In fact, the likelihood for India to station its naval forces in the South China Sea remains quite low. Yet, it may strengthen its military presence in the Indian Ocean. For instance, there is Indian Navys ambitious Project Seabird, which pursues the construction of facilities to berth the nations aircraft carriers,” the article said.”In addition, it may also cooperate with Vietnam by selling equipment to Hanoi, conducting military drills, regularly visiting Hanois ports, inspecting ships and so forth. Maintaining a close military bond with Vietnam conforms to Indias Act East strategy,” it said.”Strengthening its military presence in the Asia-Pacific region is the ultimate purpose for the US to propose US-India joint naval patrols. Washington believes that Beijing, which has already broken through the first island chain, is challenging its maritime hegemony,” it said.”Freedom of navigation is never an issue in the region. The White House is just finding excuses to enter the waters and even attempting to station its forces in Philippine naval bases,” it said.”Apart from drawing countries outside the region, such as India, Japan, South Korea and Australia, the US is also inciting South China Sea claimants to stir up trouble in the region. Over time, these countries will realise that it is the US, rather than China, that is militarising the South China Sea and destroying the peaceful and stable environment there,” it said.
