This military exercise of the four countries is seen as nothing sort of a strong message for China. The Malabar exercise started in 1992. It was first started by the Indian and US Navy as a bilateral maneuver. 23 years later, in 2015, Japan also became a permanent member of this exercise. Now Australia too has joined it.
