The research paper covers the impact of external actors on the policies of India and the PRC in the Asia-Pacific region.

Also, this research paper covers factors that negatively affect the Indian-Chinese cooperation. In its turn, the first chapter is devoted to the role that the APR states have played in the foreign policy of India and China for several decades. The second one examines the impact of the US, Japan and ASEAN member countries on the implementation of Indian foreign policy plans. The equal attention is paid to the influence of Australia and Russia on Indian activity in the waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans. The final chapter provides an analysis of factors influencing the interaction of China with key Asian-Pacific actors. According to the outcomes of the research the external influence on Indian politics in the APR is mainly positive, while the strengthening of Chinese positions in this region encounters resistance from the majority of the APR states.
