Economic relevance and geopolitical significance have drawn attention of the world towards Indian Ocean and the Pacific. US, Japan, India and Australia have increased their naval cooperation for securing the sea lanes of communication over these oceans. The term ‘Indo-Pacific’ has rattled the Chinese security establishment and also the state funded think tanks and every discussion revolves around IPS, the acronym for India Pacific Strategy in China. Majority of think tanks in China are of the opinion that Indo Pacific strategy will adversely affect China’s economic, military and strategic interests, particularly the BRI, and therefore Chinese countermeasures are compulsory. It is important to understand their views on this initiative of the US.
