LONDON July 30: India’s first aircraft self- research and development of nuclear submarine “body count” was 26, officially launched, and the sea is about to begin a two-year trial. In response, Pakistani officials have clearly expressed anger, saying that India’s “body count” was a threat to themselves, and on the 28th condemned the “body count” nuclear submarine “not conducive to regional peace,” should cause all of the Indian Ocean coastal countries of serious concern. However, the British newspaper The Times reported that 29, “body count” nuclear submarine of the imaginary enemy is not Pakistan, but China, marking India’s arms race is accelerating trend.
reported that the “body count” was equipped with torpedoes and missiles, is a five-megawatt nuclear reactor that will be powered by the 85 nuclear submarines in the first one, will patrol the waterway in the Indian Ocean. It was launched as the world marks the first six Indian nuclear submarines deployed in countries that New Delhi to pursue its growing economic and political forces rather the determination of the global military capability. However, given the recent history of grievances and tensions in the Asian subcontinent, Pakistan’s concerns probably misplaced. India’s “body count” nuclear submarine’s assume that the target is not Pakistan, but China.
reported that in recent years, India’s increasing attention to China’s military expansion in the Indian Ocean. Coast of China early on in Burma to obtain a military base, and it not only for other countries to provide substantial assistance to the Indian Ocean, also signed a treaty of friendship, and the establishment of ports in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and even reported that an island in Myanmar, China built on a listening station. Now, China’s projection of its power of being the most watched measure – will be located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, Hambantota port between Europe and Asia transformed into a deep container transshipment center. There will also be a control channel between the Gulf and the Far East – most of the world oil supply lines through here – the front-line base.
reported that India is not the only suspect that China is building around the Indian Ocean “string of pearls” of the country. For the Indian Navy chief 苏里什梅塔 (SureeshMehta) proposed the “China wants to ‘control the world vital energy transport’” concerns, the United States and Japan also shared his feelings. To Sri Lanka, for example, China to Sri Lanka’s army successfully wiped out a large number of weapons to the LTTE; return, Sri Lanka has agreed to allow China to build strategic importance of Hambantota (Hambantota) port, this port is the Indian Ocean leading to the Malacca Channel throat hub. United States published by China, “the move is a commercial operation,” the statement said the suspect, and encourage India to build its own naval forces, as checks and balances.
reported that China and India are now involved in an arms race. India’s defense budget in 2007 compared to 2006 increased 7.8%, China’s military budget in 2008 to 5.9 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 17.6% in 2007. Both countries invested heavily in the forward of their naval forces. The strategic competition between the two countries is the Indian Ocean region.
reported, but the irony is that this competitive situation occurs, was actually in the Indian border war since 1962, since when is most closely. Currently, annual trade between China and India amounted to about $ 40 billion, and the two countries have entered the first joint military exercises. However, last year made India a nuclear deal with the U.S. decision to let the Chinese really surprised, the Chinese see this as India’s foreign policy marks a decisive tilt to the West. The results, once peace has become the arena of the Indian Ocean danger: the rise of Asian powers have increasingly decided to prove himself there as a stage. India’s “body count” was found in nuclear submarine is expected to be fitted out within three years. (Compiled: Spring)
