Significance of I2U2 for India
The grouping of this four-country becomes crucial to address the issue of food security and safety.
The report by the State of Food Security and Nutrition (2020) quotes that around 14% of India’s total population is undernourished.
It will help the countries to explore security cooperation among the four nations. Even India already has robust bilateral security cooperation with all the major countries in these grouping.
Grouping will boost India’s project to build a connectivity corridor that runs from India to the Arabian gulf across the Arabian Peninsula to Israel, Jordon, and from there to the European Union.
It will also help India to cut the cost of moving containers significantly.

India needs to balance the rival countries diplomatically and strategically to maintain friendly relations with each other in the region. India has to reassure other partners in West Asia, especially Iran which is important in relation to the present context of Afghanistan, energy security, and connectivity between North-South.
