Australia to join Malabar drill

In Strong Repulse to China, India Invites Australia, Forms 'Quad' Alliance in Malabar Naval Drill

Malabar is created to advance military-to-military coordination in a multinational environment between the U.S., Japan and Indian maritime forces.

India, Japan, the United States and - for the first time since 2007 - Australia will take part in this November's Malabar naval exercise, a move that is likely to lead to protests from China.

India has announced the inclusion of Australian Navy in the Malabar naval exercise amid ongoing tensions with China in eastern Ladakh.

This is also important as China has been breaking the global maritime rules and laws in South China Sea; in some of the recent cases, China unlawfully claiming Vietnamese territory of Paracels Islands and harassing Vietnamese fishing boats alongside threatening other littoral nations- Philippines and Indonesia- and others in the region.

While not a formal military alliance like North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, it is seen by some as a potential counterweight to growing Chinese influence and alleged aggression in Asia-Pacific.

China has denounced the Quad as an attempt to contain its development. In addition, an Indian maritime patrol aircraft and helicopters from both sides carried out coordinated exercises.

Trials resumed after British regulators and an independent review concluded the illness was not a side effect of the vaccine. According to Bloomberg , the participant hadn't received the company's vaccine , but it's unclear how they died.

The upcoming Malabar 2020 exercise "showcases the deep trust between four major Indo-Pacific democracies and their shared will to work together on common security interests", said Australia's Minister for Defense Linda Reynolds, according to the Australian statement. India has already inked mutual logistics support deal with the other two Quad members.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, in his first foreign trip since becoming succeeding Shinzo Abe last month, and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc inked an agreement for Japan to begin exporting defense equipment to Vietnam. In a submission to the United Nations in July 2020, Australia rejected China's claims in the South China Sea region - a stance which brings it closer to the US's own.

"The Malabar series of naval exercises started in 1992 as a bilateral Indian Navy-US Navy exercise".

These were the details of the news Australia joins US, Japan and India in naval exercises in the. for this day.

Once operational, BECA will allow India to use USA geospatial intelligence and enhance accuracy of automated systems and weapons like missiles and armed drones. In 2019, it was off the coast in Japan and this year it will be in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal.
