India-Australia Relations Likely to Get Stronger
By Rajeswari Rajagopalan
After a decline in Sino-Indian relations, which appears unlikely to improve in the near term, India has maintained a subtle foreign policy approach in its relationship with China while deepening its relationship with Australia and other regional partners.
As Dr Rajeswari Rajagopalan writes in this analysis brief, India is still reluctant to publicly declare its support for Australia. Instead, it is likely to show its preferences through its increase in strategic and economic engagement, with bilateral cooperation between the two countries continuing to grow steadily.
