Mr Trump's "dream" involves bringing India into an alliance that stretches from the United States across the Pacific into Asia and up into India, boxing China out. A press release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs stated that "open" and inclusive regional vision and anti-terrrorism cooperation were discussed at the quadrilateral where India elaborated on the concept of Indo-Pacific region.

Donald Trump wants to pivot to the Indo-Pacific and may want to revive a "Quad" alliance between Japan, the US, Australia, and India.

While traditionally the Asia Pacific region has been a US-centric concept, the Indo-Pacific region has been an India-centric concept that has found increased acceptance in the Indian policy panels in recent years.

Over the past few years, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe advocated the concept of a free and open Indo-Pacific region, and Trump is promoting it as a new US policy concept for Asia.

'President Trump did not say it was targeting China, so there is no reason to believe it is targeting China, ' he said.

Experts are concerned about Seoul's handling of the situation.

Seoul's dilemma was conspicuous on Thursday when President Moon Jae-in's aides made confused remarks about whether it accepts Trump's new approach, from a flagrant rejection to delicate reservation and then active consideration.

In an exclusive interview with ANI, Dennis Wilder, former high ranking Central Intelligence Agency expert on China and now professor of Asian Studies at the Georgetown University in Washington, DC, said, "This idea has been kicking around between the US, Japan, Australia and India for a while".

In 2010, then U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used it nearly for the first time as a major U.S. policymaker, referring to the larger area and possibly replacing the Asia-Pacific region by including countries with coasts on the Indian and Pacific oceans. "It is nonsense for the Blue House to say now that it never agreed to it".
