Title: Australia can’t continue to divide the Indian Ocean in two

Author(s): David Brewster

Excerpt:

We’re approaching an Indo-Pacific strategy with a glass half-full – best to fill it up entirely.

By David Brewster

Australia’s definition of the “Indo-Pacific” currently includes much of the Pacific Ocean as well as the eastern Indian Ocean, but excludes the western Indian Ocean.

By Manjeet S. Pardesi

Recent years have witnessed a dramatic transformation of the Indian-Australian strategic relationship. While Australia worried about India’s naval expansion in the late 1980s, and recalled its high commissioner from New Delhi after India’s 1998 nuclear tests, India and Australia are fostering a close strategic partnership today.
