Abstract

The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad), an informal alliance, consists of the US, India, Japan and Australia. Keeping in view the alliances, the objective of this paper is to analyze the impact of the support provided by the US to India, including sanction waivers, diplomatic support, and membership support in the NSG. It also examines the consequences of the US and India's support system on Pakistan's security calculus. Qualitative research methodology is used, applying thematic analysis to explain the implications of the Indo-US nexus on Pakistan. The result of the paper has found that since the formation of the Quad, cooperation between the US and India has increased significantly, and India is playing an effective role in maligning and spreading propaganda against Pakistan. In the end, the paper concludes by mentioning the way forward for Pakistan in such situations.
