Manjeet S. Pardesi, Asia Studies Visiting Fellow at the East-West Center in Washington, explains that “Contrary to international relations theories, the signing of the LEMOA demonstrates that India is seeking regional primacy, not hegemony, and this is compatible with America’s strategic interests in South Asia/Indian Ocean.”
