In order to discuss a number of issues, the foremost of which is securing Asia's sea areas, Japan, the United States and India began preparations on Nov. 28 for the director-level meeting that is to be held in December in Washington.

It will be the first meeting of its kind among the three countries.

The three countries hope that they can hold the meeting periodically in turn and upgrade the exchange to the ministerial level in the future. Japan and the United States also hope to strengthen their economic cooperation with India.

Japan is set to establish a strategic partnership with India according to the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), which became effective in August 2011 and discuss Japanese Premier Yoshihiko Noda’s upcoming visit to India at the end of 2011. In 2012, the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force and Indian navy will hold their first joint military drill too.

Sir ,India always want to cooperate with China .But China shows little interest in making ties with India for unknown reasons. Now India chose other countries as friends.There is nothing to worry.
