QUAD AS A TOOL FOR INDIA’S COMPETITIVE MILITARY ADVANTAGE
The world is going through the tough time during this pandemic period. Millions of people have lost their life and billions of people have lost their livelihood both in organized and unorganized sector. There are different theories going through the origin of the corona virus. Many people including the scientific community suspect that the virus was man made as a biological weapon and unintentionally has spilled over outside, though there are no concrete evidence to prove that theory. But the origin of this virus is China which leads to a strong voice from the world community to isolate that country and it must be made accountable. On the other hand, China has taken a powerful weapon called ‘expansionist strategy’ to become a super power in the near future. In this context, some of the most powerful countries in the world have come forward to join hands to thwart any Chinese misadventures and to protect the friendly countries. Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) was formed by world’s four great democratic countries such as India, the United States of America, Japan and Australia more than a decade ago. Quad has become an important tool for India’s competitive military advantage. This article tries to provide insights into ‘Quad’, and its importance in India’s foreign policy.
