    Japan is wooing India to contain China: Chinese expert - The Times of India

    BEIJING: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is wooing India to contain China by establishing a close security partnership with the country to garner support for Japan's territorial disputes with Beijing, a commentary in a state-run daily here said on Friday.

    "Abe wants to build a close security partnership with India so as to contain China on both its eastern and western fronts. It also wants support in its territorial dispute with China," a commentary in the web edition of the China Daily said.

    The commentary said Abe, who has sought to build security options for Japan beyond the current US-centric framework, has argued that his country's ties with India hold "the greatest potential of any bilateral relationship anywhere in the world."

    Modi is seeking to strengthen economic and strategic cooperation with partners in East and Southeast Asia as part of his government's "Look East" strategy, the commentary said.

    Indeed, the Chinese expert's fear that the flanks of China is being secured to ensure territorial expansion is no longer China's free run is correct.
