Who was appointed as the head of the Indo-Pacific Wing?

[A]. Vikram Doraiswami
[B]. Sujan R. Chinoy
[C]. Shivshankar Menon
[D]. Nirupama Menon Rao

Answer: Option A


India has set up an Indo-Pacific division in Ministry of External Affairs (MEA). This division is the brainchild of current foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale. This new division is intended to give a coherent architecture to the policy, which was articulated by the PM Modi at the Shangri-La Dialogue in 2018. Currently, this division will be headed by join secretary Vikram Doraiswami, for whom it will be an additional charge apart from Bangladesh and Myanmar. The territorial divisions of External Affairs ministry are crucial for policy making, so the creation of an Indo-Pacific division is a mammoth step by the government.
