US Seeks Formal Alliance Similar to NATO with India, Japan and AustraliaAccording to State Department Official Says

Washington’s goal is to get countries in the Indo-Pacific region to work together as a bulwark against ‘a potential challenge from China’, says the US official- He says the four nations are expected to meet in Delhi sometime this autumn

Washington aims to formalise its closer Indo-Pacific defence relations with India, Japan and Australia – also known as “the quad” – into something more closely resembling the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nat), a senior US State Department official said on Monday.

The US government’s goal is to get the grouping of four countries and others in the region to work together as a bulwark against “a potential challenge from China” and “to create a critical mass around the shared values and interests of those parties in a manner that attracts more countries in the Indo-Pacific and even from around the world … ultimately to align in a more structured manner”, said Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun.

There is a very interesting companion piece, also from globalresearch.ca, titled: US Seeks Anti-China Alliance, Flashpoint Taiwan Strait

I am sure that these nations the US is attempting to "woo" to join this pact, are assessing its pluses and its minuses, vis a via their individual relations withe China.
