The Chinese press considers the joint exercises of the US and Indian navies to be "anti-Chinese"

14

A few days after a delegation led by US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin visited India, joint exercises of the Indian and American fleets began. The area for conducting joint maneuvers was the eastern part of the Pacific Ocean.


It is known that the American side in these exercises is represented by an aircraft carrier strike group, which includes the aircraft-carrying warship USS Theodore Roosevelt.

The largest warship used by the Indian naval vessels was the Project 17 frigate Shivalik.

The ship carries various types of weapons on board, including air defense, anti-submarine, anti-ship strike, etc. Earlier in India there was talk of re-equipping frigates of this type with supersonic BrahMos missiles. Also, the ship can carry aviation wing in the form of two Indian-made HAL Dhruv helicopters.

Indian Navy representative:

During joint exercises with our American partners, we improved joint work and data exchange. American aircraft with USS Theodore Roosevelt worked out to intercept an air target, and together we conducted an anti-submarine operation against a simulated enemy submarine.

The United States said that such exercises "demonstrate Joe Biden's commitment to deepening cooperation with his allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region."

In the Chinese media, commenting on the exercises of the ships of the Indian and US navies, they noted that the exercises in the eastern part of the Pacific Ocean were "anti-Chinese in nature." Such statements were made, apparently, also in connection with the frank anti-Chinese rhetoric that the US State Department has been allowing itself lately. Recall that on the eve of Anthony Blinken said that the United States will interact with China from a position of strength.

    The Enemy of my Enemy ... well, further according to the proverb!
    Not on those "partners" they put the sides of the teachings, some constantly throw everyone, others constantly sing and dance!
    I think China is not warm, not cold from these exercises.

      But uncomfortable ... if India opens up its ports and military bases for the American fleet, it will not be very good for China.

        China can strengthen Pakistan by several times, which is not very good for India. The stick is always double edged!

          China can multiply Pakistan

          He won't be able to ... there are a couple of points there that prevent him from doing this and doing it.

            Oh well ... when the global games begin, no one will pay attention to the "fad". Moreover, China may not directly provide support.

              Moreover, China

              has HUGE problems with its Muslims internally and Pakistan is a Muslim country.

                The problem of the Uighurs is not that significant for China, or rather, it is greatly exaggerated. I know China quite well.
                But with military support from China - Pakistan, everything is fine! At the Chinese shipyard Hudong Zhonghua in Shanghai, the Type-054A / P frigate was officially launched. Three more such frigates will be built for Pakistan by the end of this year. I know that they help with aviation and drones ... so it's not that simple.

                  The Uyghur problem is not that big for China

                  I agree. This is the problem of the Uighurs themselves, they were driven into the reservation, it is impossible to move inside the district, it is almost impossible to leave outside of it. The local authorities even published their own version of the Koran ...

        I'm not surprised. After the end of WWII, the main enemy of the Anglo-Saxons was the USSR, which is why the NATO bloc was created.
        In terms of statements by the Yankes about China. As the main threat, in the Indo-Pacific region, the latter will try to create a kind of analogue of the North Atlantic Alliance. There are also candidates - Australia, Japan, the ROK.
        They will try to force India to abandon neutrality by all means.
        History repeats itself if we recall the "modest" NATO at the time of its creation.

          It is quite possible, on the basis of ANZUS, only the whole of Asia hates the Japanese, so it will support the United States outside the bloc ...
          if you recall the "modest" NATO at the time of its creation.

          Well, at the end of the Cold War, rogues were added to almost all the developed states of the bloc, in fact, NATO included in its composition the territory, and not the country as a cordon sanitaire, which they want to deepen at the expense of the beggars of Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, and if it works out, the Republic of Belarus ...

    Striped ears will not calm down. Will be set on fire and played off all over the world. Otherwise, the role of the hegemon cannot be retained ... They can also set themselves on fire, unintentionally. So I want to help them with this!

    It is clear, where there is tension, there are minke whales nearby ... where there is no tension, minke whales will hurry up and will also be there.
    Nothing new in general.

    Little Hindus have suffered from the rule of Great Britain. They know from history that nothing good can be expected from non-Saxons. But they still crawl into the blissful image of friendly relations between India and the United States, which is sweetly outlined in words. Only the United States, except itself for the people do not consider anyone. For them abroad, if you want ... goyim, ... infidels and other Papuans ... who can be destroyed with impunity everywhere and everywhere with UAVs or other means, stifle their economies and change regimes ...

    Americans are climbing out of their skin to rally anti-Chinese and anti-Russian forces and fight China and Russia with the hands of local neighbors!
