Australia-India. Cooperazione tra i due paesi come opportunità per rafforzare la fiducia regionale

Radhey Tambi, The Interpreter:

As maritime neighbours, India and Australia form the bookends of the Indian Ocean region. At a time of “big power muscle movement”, as Australia’s Navy Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Jonathan Earley put it recently during a visit to India, cooperation between the two countries is an opportunity to foster regional trust.

According to the Indian Maritime Doctrine, the region from the east coast of Africa to the western shores of Australia is the primary area of responsibility of the Indian Navy, whereas the north-eastern part of the Indian Ocean is a priority area for Australia as described in the 2020 Defence Strategic Update.
