US rules out adding India or Japan to security alliance with Australia and UK
WASHINGTON/NEW DELHI: India and Japan will not be joining the newly announced US's trilateral security partnership with Australia and Britain .
"The announcement of AUKUS last week was not meant to be an indication, and I think this is the message the Presi nt also sent to (French Presi nt Emmanuel) Macron, that there is no one else who will be involved in security in the Indo-Pacific," White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at her daily news conference on Wednesday.
白宫新闻秘书Jen Psaki 在周三的每日新闻发布会上告诉记者：“上周宣布成立AUKUS联盟并不是一个暗示，我认为这也是总统向(法国总统埃马纽埃尔)马克龙发出的信息，即没有其他人参与印太地区的安全事务。”
Psaki was responding to a question if countries like India and Japan whose leaders would be in Washington this week for the first in-person Quad Summit would be made part of the new security alliance.
"On Friday… you'll have the Australians there (for the Quad summit). But then you also have India and Japan. Would you envision for them a similar kind of military role that you've now defined for with the Australians?” a journalist asked.
"AUKUS? What would it become? JAUKUS? JAIAUKUS?” Psaki said in lighter moments before giving answer to the question.
On September 15, the United States, announced a new alliance with Australia and Britain to strengthen naval capabilities in the Indo-Pacific with a new Australian nuclear submarine fleet.
The announcement -- made in a video meeting by Presi nt Joe Biden, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his British counterpart Boris Johnson -- was sure to infuriate France, which has been negotiating a multi-billion-dollar sale of conventional submarines to Australia.
Anyways US is not a reliable partner
Why stay in Quad then?
All these Jokes of Aukus, Quad are just stupid...no one will go to war again, like the world war. Vir s will the won of the future
With partners like US, you don't need enemies.
Get out of QUAD.
US can not be a partner. The faster India understands this, the better it is for India.
US is a friend of nobody
US Not reliable .We get S400 from russia and build our Arsenal
We ourselves are super power. why do we look forward to US and all.
They should have included France and named it as FAUKUS. And it can be spelt with the A being silent.

India alone capable of facing China why do we need USA, UK . If so , any support required our all time friend FRANCE is there additionally Japan too.
India,s national interests remain the the key objective by any alliance with other countries.
It would be better if India pays attention to it's own requirement rather than be part of such useless alliances .
Feku should be grateful that he is atleast getting the US visa now after being banned by the US for his involvement in burning thousands in 2002 gujarat riots
Lol, slap on Modi face
Nonsense. US would be glad to have India in boat, but India says: No thanks!
Anyways US is not a reliable partner.. no point for for India to ally military with US
Cunning British is planning to create a rift along QUAD nations! Their divide and rule policy won't work anymore because they are irrelevant to modern times.
The Slow Biden administration wants to make this alliance an exclusive White Man's domain! Well, two can play this game! Perhaps China would reach out to India for a mutual alliance in the region.
India, Russia, France and Japan must form an alliance!
The fact is we have been rejected
