US, NATO Plan to Recruit India Into Global Alliance Against China and Russia

In an opinion piece appearing in the Hindustan Times of March 22, a former State Department official, A. Wess Mitchell, called for this year’s North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit to invite India, one of the world’s two most populous nations, to become a NATO partner, thereby joining 40 other partners throughout the world.

Mitchell was the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs under the Donald Trump administration and is currently the co-chair of the NATO 2030 Reflection Process group preparing the alliance’s upcoming summit and the new Strategic Concept to be approved by it. As such Mitchell’s recommendation is no idle or academic one.

In testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 2018 he foreshadowed what has now become the US administration’s main international strategic goal: to consolidate a global coalition centered around NATO to isolate and confront Russia and China simultaneously and in unison:

“Russia and China are serious competitors that are building up the material and ideological wherewithal to contest US primacy and leadership in the 21st Century. It continues to be among the foremost national security interests of the United States to prevent the domination of the Eurasian landmass by hostile powers.”
