    America’s Indian Ocean strategy

    11 October 2017.  A combination of structural and policy impediments will tend to keep the Indian Ocean region fragmented in the US policy lens. The United States is likely to use the region as a staging area for counter-terrorism efforts in and around the Persian Gulf, and as a secondary theatre in the deepening strategic competition with China. Increasing tension with Iran could also sharpen US focus on the northwest corner of the region.
