My questions is what are some specific ways India can help in USA's containment strategy of China?Try to be specific economically,logistically, in an alliance,ASEAN etc... Naval land air etc... Remember USA has many bases and allies in the Pacific how would India fit or not fit into any of this? And why or why would India not choose this role?
