  • In the intro, mention the escalation of tension over the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan.
  • In the body, mention the implication of the rising tension between the US and China for East Asia and South East Asia as the countries may be forced to take the side in conflict. For India mention that China’s preoccupation with the Yellow Sea diminishes its attention towards the Indian Ocean. In the approach mention the need for India to stick to its consistent one China policy even while maintaining and even expanding non-official relations with Taiwan.
  • Conclude by mentioning that India should use the opportunity to expand India’s naval capabilities and maritime profile in this theatre before the Chinese begin to look to our extended neighbourhood.
