China poses the same security threat to both India and the US, according to a top American general

According to a high-ranking American commander, New Delhi and Washington face the same security threat from Beijing in the Indo-Pacific region, and the US is assisting New Delhi in developing the capabilities it might need to defend its border with China and its own defense industrial base.

We place a high value on our partnership with India, and over time, we've grown it and done a lot more. During a hearing on Indo-Pacific National Security Challenges, US Indo-Pacific Command commander Admiral John Christopher Aquilino addressed members of the House Armed Services Committee. "They have the same security challenge, primary security challenger, that we do, and it's real on their northern border." Admiral Aquilino stated, "They continue to get pressurized by the PRC (People's Republic of China) for border gains. Two skirmishes now in over the past nine or ten months on that border."

He was answering an inquiry from Indian American Senator Ro Khanna. " I'd like you to think about how important the relationship was during postcolonial India and China's rise to prominence as the Asian voice. However, that relationship presently has truly soured with a worry that there ought not be a hegemon in Asia and that China is regarding different nations as junior accomplices," Khannasaid.
