Attempts in establishing a balance of power is always one of the realistic approaches of countries in the international relations scope. This attempt is to maintain the status quo or to revise it. It seems that the natural tendency of countries in establishing balance of power with each other as realists claim, has currently put the United States (USA) in a historical and strategic dilemma. On the one hand, USA seeks to maintain its position as a hegemonic power, on the other hand, countries such as Russia, China and even India try to challenge this position and to establish balance with the hegemonic power. In this regard, nowhere in the world has USA been challenged strategically as in Asia for containing his hegemonic power. The main question is that how USA decreases the common threat from Russia and China and maintain its hegemonic position? In this line, the main hypothesis is that regarding the balance of power as distribution of power, USA seeks to utilize India for establishing the balance of power in central Asia. Also, India seeks to utilize the potential of USA for developing its sphere of influence in this region.
