When Indian Prime Minister Narnedra Modi visits Japan on November 11, on a 48-hour trip for the Third Annual Summit meeting, Tokyo is expected to sign its first major defense deal in the last 50 years, the sale of US-2 Amphibious aircraft to India. Sources also say that the aircraft will bear the name US-2i, which clearly indicates how serious Modi is about promoting the “Make in India” campaign. The US-2 aircraft will enable India to better surveil its Exclusive Economic Zone in the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean region. This will in turn speed up an Indian Navy response to incidents near the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, major strategic holdings from a geopolitical viewpoint.

Apart from in-depth exchanges on bilateral, regional, and global issues to further deepen the broad-based and action-oriented partnership between India and Japan, Modi’s visit will also reportedly see a civil nuclear deal. Such a deal, if concluded between New Delhi and Tokyo, would definitely antagonize Beijing. China has continuously tried to stop India’s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) citing as a reason that India is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). New Delhi should understand that China wants to penalize it for growing closer to the United States and engaging with Japan in the pacific region. Beijing also does not want to let down its all-weather ally Pakistan by accepting India’s global role as a responsible nuclear power. By convincing Tokyo to sign the civil nuclear deal, New Delhi has played a major trump card. Reports suggest that the deal between India and Japan would be concluded along the lines of the NPT, and Tokyo would walk out of the deal of India carries out a nuclear test, which it is highly unlikely to do considering its past record.

From an economic viewpoint, also, the civil nuclear deal is highly lucrative for both India and Japan. For India, the burgeoning demand for electricity to feed its mushrooming industry since the liberalization of economy in 1991 has emerged as a major problem.



ここらへんの動きは、評価するよ、安倍ちゃん。
