    China has said it wants to work with India and other countries to boost maritime cooperation, particularly with regard to coordinating naval escorts in the Indian Ocean to fight piracy.

    Chinese officials said they were particularly keen to increase coordination with the Indian navy, as naval officials from 20 countries met in the eastern port city of Nanjing on Thursday at the start of a first-of-its-kind two-day international initiative on ocean escorts, hosted by the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN).

    Geng Yangsheng, spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence, singled out India and Japan as two countries with which China wanted to increase exchanges and strengthen coordination of escort missions.

    The workshop in Nanjing, he told reporters at a briefing on Thursday, was convened with “a positive attitude” to improve the efficiency of international escort missions deployed in the fight against piracy, through greater exchange of intelligence, commander visits and joint escorts and exercises.

    He said the countries had agreed to follow an integrated escort schedule, arranged on a quarterly basis, with the schedule-making being led by “a reference country” chosen every quarter. China, as the first reference country, had already proposed a schedule, and other countries involved in the operation would formulate their schedules accordingly, the official Xinhua news agency quoted him as saying.

    This message of cooperation from China comes against the backdrop of its navy, which once limited its reach to protecting China's frontiers, spreading its presence with plans in place for the development of a blue water navy, even as the country's first aircraft carrier undergoes sea-trials.

    The PLAN has become increasingly active in escort missions in the Gulf of Aden, protecting Chinese vessels on a crucial shipping route on which China's energy imports depend. The PLAN also carried out a first of its kind operation last year in evacuating Chinese citizens out of Libya, underscoring its increasing willingness, and capability, to engage in operations beyond China's frontiers, although the country has a long-standing policy of not sending its military overseas.

    Since December 2008, the PLAN had deployed 10 navy flotillas, including 25 warships, 22 helicopters and over 8,400 officers and soldiers to the Gulf of Aden on escort missions. “It is in the common interests, as well as the common responsibility and duty, for us all to ensure the safety of ocean shipping,” Ding Yiping, PLAN deputy commander, told Xinhua.

    China's plans to rapidly modernise its navy have, however, stirred concerns, particularly in the wake of renewed tensions seen last year over disputes that flared between China and 10 of its neighbours over the South China Sea.

    The PLAN's increasing participating in escort missions in the Indian Ocean has also brought its ships closer to India's maritime boundaries, even as Indian ships are beginning to sail eastward more frequently amid the renewing of defence ties with India's East Asian neighbours.

    Last year, India stressed its strong support for the “freedom of navigation in international waters, including in the South China Sea”, after the INS Airavat, returning from a goodwill visit to Vietnam, was told over radio by an unidentified caller, claiming to represent Chinese authorities, to leave “Chinese waters”. Analysts here have stressed the need for greater communication, with the navies of both countries increasingly likely to encounter each other on the high seas. Defence exchanges between both countries only recently resumed, following almost a year of suspension over the stapled visa issue, and naval cooperation remains limited.

    Chinese analysts have pointed to joint anti-piracy escort missions as a possible platform to increase communication and build trust.

    Shen Dingli, a leading strategic expert and director of the Centre for American Studies at Fudan University, told The Hindu in a recent interview he did not see any frictions at present between the Indian and Chinese navies, and that it was natural that “both China and India would move around in the high sea area, in Pacific or Indian Oceans, for commercial interests and for protecting sea lanes of communications.”

    “If India still has concerns, invite China to [have] access to India's ports,” he suggested. “And India could have access to China's ports as well.”

    The Hindu : News / International : China wants to partner India in piracy fight

    we just need acess to South China sea........:namaste::namaste::namaste::namaste:

    Yeah, right. Tell them to get the fck out of the Indian Ocean and POK. They only want to cooperate with us when their assets are threatened. What a selfish race of people.

    Give me name of one race of people who are not selfish and I can tell you when they got extinct. Let us focus on mutual benefits instead of the racial card every time China is mentioned.

    Sounds really pricey when a Chinese dude talks about mutual benefit. I will throw your question back at you.

    Show me an instance where the Chinese have done anything with anyone for mutual benefit. Oh wait, I know. Give nukes to the pukes so you can have a whore fight your war.

    Take your shit co-operation and shove it where the sun dont shine. When you are willing to get out of POK, de-weaponize Tibet and free Tibetans, we will talk about co-operation. Until then, oloo

    What racial card are you talking off? We have done nothing against your country we have not allowed on Tibetain to cross over into China with gun or train any pro-democracy groups to wage war on China, instead right from Naxals, Pakistan to NE militants China has funded and supported.

    Your really dont understand do you? You should be surprised how we dont hate the normal chinese and how we have learnt to hate only the CCP.

    English to chinese(in english) dictionary:

    Let's work for mutual benefit --> you co-operate and we screw u anyway
    international maritime boundary --> anything beyond which PLAN hasn't sailed yet or not capable of bullying
    fighting piracy --> we will fight piracy if anyone else break our 'IPR on piracy'. It is a chinese birthright
    human rights --> wtf is that? is it another tibetian plot by the western powers to destroy china ?
    autonomy --> you are free to do whatever u want expect the ones in this 10,000 page list



    Feel free to add more to this sample list :thumb:

    How about you stop meddling in POK matters first and stop claiming our territories first?

    If you had supported us in the stand against Pakistan (a west stooge then), we would have given you a direct rail access from now-POK which could have been ours and straight from any port in India, saving you so much trouble.

    We'd have had a safe territory in complete J&K and you'd have a safe transit route for your goods and oil via middle east. Now see this is getting us nowhere. You decided to foresake our 2000 year old friendship for territorial gain and enmity.

    LMAO, some people think so highly about themselves. I dont care one way or another what you think about the co-operation. It is not up to you to decide, mrs internet warrior.

    And about when China has done anyting for mutual benefits. Guess you have never heard about "trade" and UN peacekeeping.

    Ignorance is a bliss. :cool2:

    If you came into east Ladakh calling it your territory, and still holding it giving flimsy excuses, what do you expect?

    Your government pasted you guys with false info that the land is yours historically and you had to believe in it. That can change now.

    We buried the Tibetan issue and you should also bury any border issues with us and accept the border including J&K as ours.

    If your government had done this, we could have happily moved forward. There's so much to gain from each other than what you could gain from Pakistan. But alas! Your government's short-sightedness ruined it.

    Agreed. Now let's start with this again:

    We have accepted Tibet as your country's part by our government.

    Now you take the initiative and accept J&K and Arunachal as Indian.

    Are you willing to do that? Do you really have the will to truly call for an asian century?

    The ball is in your court. It is upto you how you serve it.

    I know. However, I find it a little too confusing. Should not the CCP tackle the huge menace of piracy inside China first, before venturing into unknown territory?
    This is just a PR exercise, emulating India, to garner some brownie points.

    my version is this is a deal that between India and China, buried Sikkim and Tibetan.
    any way. why can't we do business,
    History is not caused by you and us. we need to enjoy the life, life is so short.
    Indian piracy fight is good and Chinese market and money are not feak.
    but Chinese guys, you should also give the solution how Chinese can guarantee their interest because Chinese have so bad reputation around the world (greedy and copyright)
