The US House China Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party has suggested that India join NATO Plus, a select group of American friends. India’s possible membership in this small group of defense partners would improve the sharing of information, give India access to cutting-edge military technology, and strengthen the relationship between India and the United States in the defense field.

These changes show that India’s role in countering Chinese influence and keeping peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific area is becoming more and more clear. The committee is run by Chairman Mike Gallagher and Ranking Member Raja Krishnamoorthi. They want to improve global security and stop the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from being aggressive in the Indo-Pacific area. This idea fits in with the work that Indian-American activists, like Ramesh Kapoor, have been doing for the past six years to get India included in NATO Plus.

What is NATO Plus?

NATO Plus is an agreement between countries that have formal defense relationships with the U.S. and NATO member countries. At the moment, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Japan, and South Korea are all part of the NATO Plus group. These countries work together to improve their security efforts as a whole.Adding India to NATO Plus is a good idea from a military point of view for both India and the United States. By joining this small group of close American allies, India would have easy access to the latest military technologies and information. This would speed up the development of defenses. India’s defense relationship with the US would get even stronger if it joined. Its policies would also be more in line with those of two powerful countries, the US and Russia.

India’s Role in Countering Chinese Influence

The committee wants to make diplomatic deterrence stronger by helping Taiwan join foreign groups. It suggests changing the TAIPEI Act to openly oppose any attempts by the CCP to weaken Taiwan’s sovereignty by using UN Resolution 2758 or the United States’ One China Policy in a way that doesn’t match up with their real goals. These acts show how much the committee wants to keep Taiwan’s status and fight the CCP’s influence.

The move shows that the US needs India to be a part of NATO Plus in order to deal with the strategic threat from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The US wants to stop the CCP from getting aggressive in the Indo-Pacific area. This move comes at a time when both the US and India know they need to counter China’s growing power and keep the area stable.

The committee points out that economic penalties against China will be most effective if key allies, like NATO, NATO plus Group G7, and Quad members, work together to respond to an attack on Taiwan. The united attitude of these countries not only makes China less likely to act aggressively, but it also shows how important it is to work together to stop China from acting aggressively.

This new suggestion is a lot like the one made by US Congressman Ro Khanna last year, in which he called for India to become the sixth country in NATO Plus. Congressman Khanna said that this move would make it easier for India and the US to work together on defense, which is important because China and Russia are becoming more powerful.

In the words of Congressman Khanna, “I have worked on trying to add India as the sixth country to NATO Plus. This would make it easier to have this growing Defense Partnership and make sure that we are moving India closer to a defense security alignment with the United States and Russia.”In his previous proposal, Khanna seemed to back making ties between the US and India stronger. India is becoming more important in the Indo-Pacific area. If India joined NATO Plus, it would strengthen its role as a key ally in promoting peace, stability, and deterrence in the face of changing geopolitical challenges.
