The five-day joint naval exercise between the Indian Navy and the Singapore Navy will start tomorrow in the South China Sea. Five Indian navy ships, under the command of Rear Admiral Harish Chandra Singh Bisht, arrived in Singapore today for the drill that aims to strengthen bilateral maritime security relations.

The joint exercises, held on alternate year in the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea, has built up understanding and knowledge between Indian and Singapore navies, Rear Admiral Joseph Leong, Fleet Commander of the Republic of Singapore Navy told PTI at a reception hosted on board INS Jyoti.

He cited benefits of the joint exercise and cooperation developed by the Indian and Singapore navies in tackling major challenges and especially the piracy in the Gulf of Aden. "We understand each other and have a high level contact in managing maritime security," said Rear Admiral Leong.

Rear Admiral Bisht said the annual exercises, held since 1994, were important to sharpen the skill of naval forces. INS Delhi, INS Ranvijay, INS Ranveer, INS Jyoti and INS Kirch manned by 1,400 naval personnel are participating in the exercise. Singapore will have four naval ships including a submarine.

INS Ranvijay, the most powerful Indian naval ship, will carry out anti-submarine and anti-missile exercises. But this time, the exercises would be a "mock warfare" though in the past live firing were tried out.

Too bad for them, Indian Navy is getting stronger by the day and we are expanding our strategic reach. Our navy is expanding and getting more sophisticated and we have many partners, so it would be foolish for China to start something with India, unless they like to have a high speed Bhramos destroying one of their ships at sea.

Do you think that they can threat any body in south china sea? Or do you think that Singapore would allow india to use itself to block chinese sea transportation?

No one is going to block any sea movement.

They are to ensure that others don't block sea movement!

I agree we lack something but thats not IQ, its just aggression that we lack completely. If India choose we could have started pro democratic underground in China and destroyed your CCP by now. But India never armed or trained Tibetans against China.

You will be no where close to us if we had the right government.

The fact is this is a symbolistic action only. Considering the forces of the india and singapore than can be put into this area, actually, they can't ensure anything.

Has any country objected?

It is not India and Singapore issue.

It is a synergy of many countries around the Pacific Rim that the US is trying to build.

It is being done segmentised so that it does not cause alarm!
