    Concerned at how it would be perceived by Beijing, India last month suddenly withdrew from the planning of a naval exercise with the US and Japanese navies off the US Pacific island of Guam.


    Instead, India will stick to geopolitically less sensitive separate naval manoeuvres with the US and Japan.

    US and Japanese naval officials visited India last month to discuss coordination for the trilateral exercise.

    The Indian defence ministry first indicated a preference for holding the exercise off the coast of the Japanese island of Okinawa.

    Then it took the view that war games should be kept to the bilateral level for the time being in deference to Chinese sensibilities. The ministry then withdrew from the discussion altogether.

    "Bizarrely, the US and Japan discussed a naval exercise on Indian soil that India was boycotting," said a US defence consultant.

    Beijing claims multilateral naval exercises between India, the US and Japan are aimed at containing its influence and has publicly warned all the governments against joining such exercises.

    Australia's withdrawal from the Quad after 2007 was a fallout of these protests.

    The US and Japan had hoped to give the Malabar label to the Guam exercises, echoing the 2009 Malabar naval actions.

    Tokyo saw this as paving the way to recreating the so-called "Quad" naval exercise of 2007 which saw five navies participate.

    Australia last year indicated its interest in rejoining. Indian officials say that they are only interested in bilateral naval exercises and that Malabar should be confined to exercises with the US in the Indian Ocean.

    This year's Malabar exercise, if held at all, will be a bare bones Indo-US affair in the Arabian Sea later in November. Officials say even this may not happen as both governments keep pushing the date back.

    "The dates of Malabar are still to be finalised and depends on the commitments of the Fifth Fleet's engagement in the Gulf," said an Indian Navy official.

    The Indian withdrawal from the trilateral exercise occurred before the Chinese border intrusion in eastern Ladakh.

    What could one expect?

    We seem to be more concerned about China's security than being concerned with ours!

    Salman Khurshid said: "We will have to accept the new reality of China's presence in many areas that we consider an exclusive playground for India and its friends."China for instance would give a right arm to be in the Indian Ocean as comfortably as India is placed in the Indian Ocean... this is an important critical factor for what we will see as the emerging Asian century," he said.

    We must accept China in our backyard: Salman Khurshid | NDTV.com

    So, is it a surprise?
    So, we are ready to accept their dictation on our foreign affairs
    We give Chinese sensibilities preference and don't mend our course even if snubbed by them.

    What Defence Minister said is that we have all rights to develop border infrastructure.
    But probably he failed to add- ' till that time there is no objection from the Chinese'

    Next would be to scrap the Indian Army since Chinese sensibilities are hurt by it's mere presence inside Indian territory. :tsk:

    Sell-Man Khurshid you are a BAD strategist.Shame on you ... we STILL remember your handicap scam. :tsk:

    This man's ranting are idiotic and passive.

    It is time for China to say that Asia is India's backyard what they consider as their exclusive playground.

    But to be able to do so, we have to prepare and not gas as we are so prone to do!

    We all know what happens to the countries which allows themselves to become "backyard" of some bigger power and it would be really disappointing if such a big country like India becomes that.

    So we are always going to get these shameless corrupt traitor foreign ministers deciding our foreign policies.:tsk:

    A person who has no problem in robbing the physically handicapped will have no problem with selling out our interests. After all it is just an acne- so to speak.

    you mean that India should be part of a regional security alliance against China ?

    Never !!

    Where were these countries whenever India was in trouble against China ??

    Be it 1962 or now !!

    In fact Chinese always fingered India to impress upon that Indians have no friends to cry for them...

    During 1962 all NAM pussies went into hibernation...

    Chinese respect strength, whether it is in numbers or it is a strong individual. Pussy footing in diplomatic language will invite more trouble from our Northern Neighbour.

    Our beloved PM is again reviving dreams of going across the border and walking down the aisle in Norway.

    You have a valid point there.
    if Khurshid reads this..Iam pretty sure this will be his sales pitch to the BJP in case of an objection.
