But since the collapse of the Socialist bloc, India moved closer to the United States forming together a strategic and military partnership with the main goal, containing China in the Asia Pacific region and the South China Sea. This cooperation further expanded in the mid-1990s and in 2001 India offered the United States military facilities within its territory for offensive operations in Afghanistan. US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his Indian counterpart Pranab Mukherjee signed a “New Framework for India-US Defense” in 2005 under the Indian United Progressive Alliance government, increasing cooperation regarding military relations, defence industry and technology sharing, and the establishment of a “Framework on maritime security cooperation. “India and the United States conducted dozens of joint military exercises in the ensuing years before the development of the Quadrilateral dialogue, interpreted as an effort to “contain” China.. Under Modi’s regime, India revived the The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QSD), commonly known as the Quad which is a strategic security dialogue between Australia, India, Japan and the United States. The dialogue was paralleled by joint military exercises of an unprecedented scale, titled Exercise Malabar. The diplomatic and military arrangement was widely viewed as a response to increased Chinese economic and military power.
