India’s border clash with China is unmasking a greater geopolitical situation. China’s growing aggression in Asia is expanding, but India is not putting up with it. From resistance in the eastern Ladakh region to a closer tie with the United States, how is this Asian democracy going to play its hand on the global stage?
How is the United States going to play a role in making a regional alliance with India? If the two are aligned in the form of government, and they have a common agreement over the rules-based order, how will their relationship affect Asian politics? Will China be affected by a stronger India–U.S. tie?
