    China has invited the Indian Navy to take part in an international fleet review being staged by it in waters off Qingdao in the Shandong province next year. The invite comes at a time when the Chinese navy is taking steady strides to expand in the Indian Ocean Region.

    The Indian Navy is expected to send some of its frontline warships for the review being held from April 21-24, even as New Delhi closely monitors the progress made by China to have a credible sea-based deterrence.
    China’s newest submarine-launched ballistic missile Julang-2, to be deployed on the Jin-class submarines, is expected to attain operational capability next year.
    India had for the first time taken part in a fleet review hosted by China four years ago to mark the 60th anniversary of the Chinese navy. But the countries have been squabbling over energy exploration in the resource-rich South China Sea over the last few years.
    Navy chief Admiral DK Joshi had last year declared India was prepared to counter any aggression in the disputed South China Sea to guard the country’s interests, sparking sharp reactions from the Communist neighbour.
    The oil blocks allotted to India for exploration lie in Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone, but China claims the maritime zone as its own.

    They can monitor China's progress close-up, and China can monitor India's. Probably not a bad idea, but certainly not a hands-across-the-sea initiative. .

    in such an open informationized world ...the opened view and mind should be a basic quality for the navies and common people, pay a little more attention to your Armed force's actions....some fuss is really avoidable

    Multinational drill to be held in East China port city

    (Source: People's Daily Online) 2014-04-22

    A total of seven vessels arrived at the port of Qingdao in East China's Shandong province on Sunday morning ahead of the 14th annual meeting of the Western Pacific Naval Symposium (WPNS), which the PLA's navy is expected to launch on Tuesday.

      The vessels - from countries including India, Singapore and Brunei - are set to participate in a joint drill on Thursday to celebrate the 65th anniversary of China's navy.

      Additionally, top naval officials from more than 20 countries are coming to Qingdao for the naval symposium, said PLA navy spokesman Liang Yang, during a press briefing on Sunday afternoon.

      This is the first time that China has hosted the event, which was first held in 1987 as a forum where naval officers of Pacific countries can meet biennially to discuss initiatives to address regional and global maritime issues.

      China is one of the founding countries of the WPNS, which has become one of the most important maritime cooperation mechanisms in the region.

      "This is Brunei navy's first deployment to China. It is an honor to be here," said Willie Padan, commander of the Brunei patrol ship Darulehsan.

      He also said the symposium gives Brunei an opportunity to engage with China and other countries in the Pacific region.

      "Since we are a small country in terms of the population, we will absorb as much as we can to gain experience from bigger nations including China," he added.

      Padan also said he was impressed when the Chinese hospital ship Peace Ark visited Brunei during its four-month cruise last year.

      "She is a beautiful ship with world-class equipment. I appreciate the humanitarian service the PLA navy has given to Brunei and I am looking forward to more exchanges with China and other countries," he said.

      The Indian frigate Shivalik – with nearly 300 crew members – was one of the vessels which sailed into the port on Sunday. "We traveled about 5000 miles to attend this meeting," said Puruvir Das, commander of Shivalik. "This is my first trip to Qingdao. Our officers and I are looking forward to interact with other officials and visit the city."

      Das said navies from different countries should continue to strengthen their exchanges and improve cooperation.

      "China has done an excellent work organizing this international event. I am looking forward to meeting fellow navies and learning from them," said Captain Rashid Zafar Cheema, commander of Pakistan's frigate Shamsheer. Pakistan was invited to attend as one of the three observers of the event.

      "Our ship was built in Shanghai. Every time I sail in China I feel like I am sailing in my home waters," he also said.

      Qingdao garrison commander Wu Dongzhu, received the vessels at the port, and told them that China welcomes all the participants to the WPNS, saying:"I wish them an enjoyable stay in the city, and a success symposium and drill."

    ----------------------------------------------
    this is the second trip to China for INS Shivalik...

    during her stay in Qingdao ,INS Shivalik was open to China's civilian but no electronic equipment was allowed to be brought onboard this time...so we didn't get the close shots like we did last time in Shanghai. here's some shots from distant positions.----source: CD forum...

    Wonderful pictures..Thank you. Good to see two great civilizations having friendly interaction...this type of attitude can prevent "greedy ,selfish bully powers" from pitting India and China against each other. Mutual respect and peaceful coexistence...NOT domination and hegemony.
