With China’s rising international status, the importance of India-Japan security relations has grown commensurately. India’s and Japan‘s importance for each other security has grown commensurately with China rising international status. Yet their relationship illustrates the aspirations and limits of the Look East Policy. India’s and China’s Japan’s common concern vis-à-visabout China is as much a product of political proximity as of strategic ambiguity. Many of the dimensionsDimensions of this relationship, including the construction by JapanJapan’s construction of economic corridors in India, have potential strategic consequences. Their cooperation offers a mix of integration and balancing vis-à-vis China. In the strategic domain though, the convergence between Tokyo and New Delhi is still in its infancy while Indian and Japanese decision makers are very careful in their commitments towards one another. Both India and Japan are supporting a transition towards a balanced multipolar system in Asia. Both however aspire to some form of leadership, but in Asia and need the other in the process. But both each will welcome the other as a comprehensive partner only as long as the other will not seek dominance.
