The Australian bureaucracy has had three impediments to understanding and acting on the real importance of India. These are: an obsession with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, an obsession with China and a tendency to group all things Indian with Pakistan.

Excellent points all....John Howard's government is pampering the Chinese communists; let us see how long this honeymoon lasts. Let us not forget that the Chinese "String of Pearls" strategy involves encircling Australia too.

Excellent editorial by an Australian journalist who gets it (unfortunately, he is one of the few who gets it).

Australia-India relation is very very important for India and Australia. Australia is in between US and India, a strategic point connecting the two by waters. If India is under attack and US comes to help by any chance, Australia will be one of the bases to send military aides to India. For India, Australia is in the location between the America continent, critical for security of transportation of goods by ship, going down the route near Australia. I would strongly hope both Indians and Australians to consider both as important partners and warm friendship for that will benefit both. I am very glad PM Howard made a visit to India recently. This will strengthen US-India-Australia-Japan ties. We are all the protectors of democracy and civilization, and the relationship of four will guarantee a stable security of Pacific and Indian Ocean.

To sell uranium to china but not India is plain ridiculous.
