NEW DELHI, (BM) – An agreement on the use of each other’s military bases was concluded by India and Australia, the Indian Foreign Ministry said June 4, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The agreement between both parties is to provide access to each other’s military bases – a pact that will clear the way for new military exchanges and exercises in the Indo-Pacific region.
An agreement on mutual logistic support was signed during a virtual summit between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison.
To clarify, India has entered into a similar treaty with the United States, which is seen as part of broader security cooperation to balance China’s growing economic and military weight in the region.
Unresolved issue of drawing the border line between the former British India and Tibet. Two sections were considered controversial. One of them, with an area of 518 km², is located in the north-eastern part of Kashmir, also known as Aksai Chin.
The second disputed region is located in the northern part of the modern state of Arunachal Pradesh, occupies an area of 82.88 thousand km² along a border area of approximately 700 km in length.
One of the reasons for the aggravation of relations between the countries was the fact that India discovered a road built by China through Aksai Chin, apparently constructed to improve access to Tibet, where the situation was tense then. In 1960, the PRC proposed to give India the eastern disputed site in exchange for free hands within the western.
According to another version, the real reason for the Chinese invasion was India’s political asylum to the fourteenth Dalai Lama, who fled from Tibet after the Chinese captured this country.
