Talks with US, Japan not directed at China: India

[ via Hindustan Times ] 26 Dec

A week after it held the first trilateral meeting with the US and Japan, India on Monday said it was not directed against any third country and clarified that Beijing has not voiced any reservations over the exercise.

"The trilateral is not aimed at an any third country. It is aimed at leveraging opportunities for cooperation among the three countries," Gautam Bambawale, joint secretary for East Asia in the external affairs ministry, told reporters in New Delhi.

"These discussions mark the beginning of a series of consultations among our three governments, who share common values and interests across the Asia-Pacific and the globe," the Indian embassy in US said in a statement.
