India invites Australia for Military Exercises

India has invited Australia to participate in the annual Malabar naval military exercises that are going to be held in November along with the USA and Japan.

All the 4 countries accepted that China is a potential threat to them.

China is likely to consider it as a provocative gesture, as it sees the coming together of India, Japan, the US, and Australia, also known as the “Quad”, as an effort to limit its influence, said analysts.

“The Malabar series of naval military exercises started in 1992 as a bilateral Indian Navy-US Navy exercise. Japan joined the naval exercise in 2015,” India’s defense ministry said.

“As India seeks to increase cooperation with other countries in the maritime security domain and in the light of increased defence cooperation with Australia, Malabar 2020 will see the participation of the Australian Navy,” it said.

“High-end military exercises such as Malabar are key to enhancing Australia’s maritime capabilities, building interoperability with our close partners, and demonstrating our collective resolve to support an open and prosperous Indo-Pacific. Exercise Malabar also showcases the deep trust between four major Indo-Pacific democracies and their shared will to work together on common security interests,” Australian defence minister Linda Reynolds said.
