India proposes to involve the Japanese military in tracking submarines of the Chinese Navy in the Indian Ocean

25

The Asian press published an interview with former Indian Foreign Minister Kanwal Sibal, who spoke about the "Chinese threat" against the Indian state. According to Sibal, who held India's top foreign policy post from 2001-2002, China has increased its military presence in the Indian Ocean and this needs to be countered.


The SCMP edition cites a statement from the former Indian Foreign Minister:

China has acquired numerous footholds around India in recent years. China takes control of ports in Pakistan, Sri Lanka. He established a military base in Djibouti - on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Chinese ships and submarines enter the Indian Ocean on a regular basis. All this activity is explained by Beijing exclusively from an economic point of view - the creation of infrastructure within the framework of the "One Belt - One Road" project.

In the meantime, it is proposed to intensify cooperation with other countries to counter China. For example, Abhijit Singh, Senior Researcher and Head of Maritime Security Policy at ORF, says that India has already begun implementing a plan to deploy additional military forces in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. At the same time, it is indicated that it is necessary to update and increase the length and width of the runways on these archipelagos, as well as to involve Japan in the “confrontation with China”. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are called "a kind of aircraft carriers in the Indian Ocean" from which you can engage in aerial patrols over large areas.

The statement of the former Ambassador of India to Japan D. Wadhwa is cited:

Last month, Japan provided the islands with a $ 36 million grant for their development. In particular, the funds will go to the development of the island's power system.

It was noted that the infrastructure of the islands in the Indian Ocean, together with Japan, could be used to track the submarines of the Chinese Navy. The aforementioned Sibal suggested involving not only Japan, but also Australia's military in the process, adding that the US "is also ready to provide assistance."

    No, well, what, thugs. Throw firewood into the creation of an anti-Chinese coalition. Only then do not be surprised when they demand a return service from you, and perhaps it will not be the Japanese.

          And we still have things to do ...

          After negotiations between VVP and Biden, a lot can change.
          This is if there are negotiations.
          And if they are not there, then even greater changes can occur. hi

              Alexander! Let's get serious. wink
              The fact that Biden had to call is for a reason.
              Even 1 month ago, he did not want to know anything about Russia.
              And now he is asking for the first face-to-face international meeting.
              Everyone, all over the world, will understand this "signal" very correctly.
              Hindus often behave strangely, but they are not fools. hi

                Exactly, of course, we cannot know, but something suggests that the Byden call is a consequence of Russia's diligent preparation to strengthen its western borders ... "It smelled like burning" in Kiev, in Washington, we decided to discuss it personally, at the meeting. ..

    The best help is when you are not disturbed! With the Japanese, they just need to establish an exchange of information online, as well as with the South Koreans, the rest themselves, and do not impose on us friends, it will end badly for India.

      If India wants to cooperate with Japan, then it will have to "impose itself as friends of the United States."

    the yapps have their own interes, but everything is certainly tied there to the minke whales .... i.e. Are the Indian ones trying multi-vector or have they chosen a specific vector of movement?

      What kind of multi-vector approach? Hindus make peace with Pakistanis. At one time, they said that they consider the Indian Ocean their sea - their area of ​​responsibility. In fact, they are preparing for a confrontation with only one enemy, with the NAOK. Asian NATO begins. A Japanese forces self defense begin to "defend" far from their territories.

      the Japanese are interested in diverting China westward and weakening at sea.
      therefore they may well be interested in the project.
      In addition, this is an excellent occasion to test their new aircraft - amphibians and other reconnaissance means.
      Or maybe sell it to colleagues.

          With them, too, everything is clear - they want to solve their problems at someone else's expense.
          But in the end, they will again pay more than if they did everything themselves.

    And what does the project have to do with one belt one road (Silk Road)? It's about an overland railway line ~ 8000 km long China Europe, even the former head of the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has lagged behind (2001-2002) Any reason or something needed?

    connect Japan to "confrontation with China"
    Why not the whole world at once? Japan really has a peculiar relationship with China, which will never forget what the Japanese were doing on its territory. But this does not mean that Japan will openly run to get closer to India in confrontation with China. In this case, India's desire does not coincide with its capabilities.

    The Chinese dragon is getting stronger and more powerful! He wants to eat, he needs markets and resources! China's economic and political expansion is heading in all directions!


    Pax China is replacing Pax Americana and will be tougher ...
