India’s External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, on Friday clarified that India has no intention of joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), led by Western countries. Jaishankar stated that the military alliance is not suitable for India. NATO is an intergovernmental military alliance comprising 31 member states, primarily from Europe and North America, aimed at ensuring the freedom and security of its members through political and military cooperation.

India’s stance comes in response to recent recommendations from a powerful Congressional Committee in the United States to strengthen NATO Plus by including India. NATO Plus is a security arrangement that brings together NATO and five aligned nations (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, and South Korea) to enhance global defence cooperation. The proposal aimed to enable seamless intelligence sharing among these countries, allowing India to access advanced military technology without significant delays.

However, India rejected the suggestion, with Jaishankar stating that the “NATO template does not apply to India”. It is important to note that the proposal came ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the United States.

Why US invited India to join NATO?

The United States believes that India should join NATO to safeguard its borders from China and enhance global security to counter Chinese aggression in the Indo-Pacific region. 

“Winning the strategic competition with the Chinese Communist Party and ensuring the security of Taiwan demands the United States strengthen ties to our allies and security partners, including India. Including India in NATO Plus security arrangements would build upon the US and India’s close partnership to strengthen global security and deter the aggression of the CCP across the Indo-Pacific region,” the Congressional Committee recommended.

Leonkov, the editor of Arsenal Otechestva, a Russian military affairs magazine, told Sputnik that the Kakhovka Dam attack aligns with the West’s ‘scorched earth’ scenario for Ukraine.

  3. Foolish decision. India can’t even get back its own borders from China, with the recent issues. India is trying to go the route of Turkey, where they play both sides of the fence, to which no one is fooled. I predict one day China will invade India successfully. China is much better at warfare than India is.
