Strengthen India ties to deal with China, think tank tells Biden

Widen South Asian focus from Afghanistan to bigger Indo-Pacific picture, experts say

NEW YORK -- The Biden administration should deemphasize the war in Afghanistan and give more attention to South Asia as a whole, particularly India, in a broader Indo-Pacific framework, all with an eye on China, a congressionally funded bipartisan think tank in Washington recommends in a new report.

As America and allies push for a "free and open Indo-Pacific" and to respond to a more assertive Beijing, the United States Institute of Peace has released "China's Influence on Conflict Dynamics in South Asia," a report to serve as "a road map for the next U.S. administration while it advances the Indo portion of that vision."
