Bridging Strategic Asia: The United States, Japan, and India
On June 28-29, 2007, the International Security Program and South Asia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, in partnership with the Japan Institute of International Affairs, co-hosted a private two-day meeting entitled “Bridging Strategic Asia: The United States, Japan, and India.”
The objective of the Washington meeting is to continue the process of interaction between the three countries through dialogue on international security issues between a select number of younger U.S., Japanese and Indian foreign policy and security specialists. The meeting will be the first of two meetings to discuss international issues of mutual concern to the United States, Japan, and India. A corollary purpose of the initiative in fact is to facilitate contact among a younger generation of experts to build a network that may form the basis for continued interaction and dialogue among the three countries in the future.
