Why was China shocked to see the presence of Indian Air Force at Tokyo’s Air Force base? – China Global Times Japan, China to counter US-fueled growing military ambitions as India begins warplane exercises

Japan and India began their first air combat drills on Monday. This is the first time that the two countries have conducted a joint military exercise. But this has cooled China. China says the military exercise has exposed Japan and India’s growing military ambitions against Beijing.

According to China’s official daily Global Times, India and Japan have started this joint military exercise at the instigation of the United States.

The report, citing analysts, said that this joint military exercise between Japan and India reflects the long-term and ever-increasing military ambitions of both countries.

Wei Dongsu, a Beijing-based military expert, said India wants to register its presence in the purchase of military equipment by demonstrating its military capabilities outside the Indian Ocean region.

His motive behind Japan

On the other hand, Japan has welcomed Indian fighter jets on its soil so that it can send its planes to India in future, Wei said. This would help expand Japan’s military operations in other parts of the world.

The report said that the US is wooing Japan and India in its Indo-Pacific strategy to reduce China’s dominance. While India is involved in a border dispute with China, Japan is planning to intervene in the Taiwan issue.

Despite joint military exercises, the two countries lack the strategic will and capability to fight a war in the event of a conflict with Japan or India, the report said. But China must be prepared to face any adverse situation.

Analysts say that through this joint military exercise, the Japanese Air Force will be able to gain extensive experience from the Indian Air Force, especially in the context of China.
