Ahead of Navy Day on Dec four, Chief of the naval employees Admiral Sunil Lanba making a robust statement has said that Indian Navy is well ready for countering any threats inside or on the far side the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).
In an interview to The Indian express, Lanba said, “The Indian Navy is one of the foremost formidable maritime military forces in the world today and remains well prepared for countering any threat to national security, within the IOR and beyond.”
Speaking on the increasing presence of Chinese Submarines within the Indian Ocean, Lanba said the Indian Navy is closely watching the “pattern and periodicity of extra-regional submarine deployments in the IOR.
The People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), has deployed submarines within the ocean allegedly for “anti-piracy patrols” however Bharat suspects China’s intention because the dragon encompasses a history of not being honest once it involves border affairs.
Speaking on the difficulty, Lanba said, “It is rather an odd task to give to a submarine… it is not an ideal platform to do anti-piracy patrols.”
