Ep. 80: चीन बनाम चौकड़ी | The Geopolitics of Quad.

After years of dilly-dallying, 2020 was the year when many states started working together to take on a common challenge: China. One such formation is the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad). Though established in 2008, it’s only over the last couple of years that the grouping has started engaging more fruitfully. In this puliyabaazi, Indrani Bagchi, Diplomatic Editor at Times of India, takes an in-depth look at the prospects and challenges for this grouping. We also discuss India’s bilateral relationships with the other three Quad countries.

पिछले साल अंतर्राष्ट्रीय राजनीति में एक बड़ा बदलाव यह आया कि कई देश चीन की मग़रूर हरकतों के ख़िलाफ़ खुलकर बोलने लगे और अपने आपसी मतभेदों को एक तरफ रख, साथ मिलकर काम करने में दिलचस्पी दिखाने लगे।  क्वाड – मतलब भारत, अमरीका, जापान, और ऑस्ट्रेलिया की चौकड़ी – ने भी इस साल कई महत्त्वपूर्ण कदम उठाए। तो क्या है ये चौकड़ी और इससे भारत को क्या फायदा होगा? इसी विषय पर पुलियाबाज़ी टाइम्स ऑफ इंडिया की डिप्लोमैटिक एडिटर इन्द्राणी बागची के साथ।
