I am not ready to accept a thrashing from SL in any form......however, by looks of it (i.e the way our Corrupt Con-gress functions to only loot the nation and worship a thug of an illiterate Italian mafiaso waitress/____ and her dumb retard corrupt family) the day is not far away when will be watching Youtube videos by SLN and SLA thrashing us in our own turf, and we just running away from a fight and GOI patting itself on its back by claiming themselves to be champions of peace/restraint (while on the other had they kill our own countrymen without any remorse)......trust me SL is not that small when compared to pakistan....I am sure corrupt Chidambram, pranab, tiwari, sibal, mainos, vaderas et al have already drafted all the dossiers to be sent to Rajapakse in the event of SL feels adventurous, we will only sit and watch SL pound us and our great Con-gress led GOI with a eunuch 'Kath ka Ullu' PM MMS will send dossiers!

Kunal, you don't have to reply to everything our neighbors utter. They surely are not realistic about it are they? Even the Bangladeshis are claiming some territorial waters based on the continental shelf. As if they will get anything.

More than anything else such tactics are used by these small countries to show India is a bully and it is entirely possible that it could be at the behest of the Chinese.

Anyways this is a pretty old thread. No one has heard about this since.

Old news and rather absurd one too .

If the UN agrees to this absurd proposal then globally all countries will keep extending their "sea bed rights " as per this news then there will be huge problems on global scales

Asia alone has thousands of Islands . ASEAN countries will have never ending disputes

I don't know what steroid Sri Lanka is on, but one thing should be firmly said and understand by Sri Lanka and its acting godfathers, this is neither year 1947 nor 1962, this is 1999 plus, India stopped giving away her territory and wealth be they above water or under.

What if China extends its arm to Srilanka to support its claim in its sea bed rights?? Saying "War on Srilanka is like waging war against China!!" China always likes these kind of proxy wars and aggressions rite!!!!

India can use the oppurtunity to throw its weight around. Punish Sri Lanka, even militarily if need be, then everyone would automatically take India seriously.
We dont want to fight with an enemy of our match. Instead, we pick on a smaller opponent, knock him down completely and make a spectacle of our strength. Others will, then be, wary of us. We let smaller guys get away after tounting us, then we will be seen as soft target and then we will invite bigger enemies.

The possibility of UN accepting such bogus and absurd claims by Sri lanka or for that matter ANY country is very remote as it will open a GLOBAL Pandora's box

There will be huge conflicts globally .No country can EXTEND ITS sea bed rights just like that

And since Andamans are UNDISPUTED Indian territory the "sea bed rights " around Andamans are INDIA's

How can Sri lanka 's rights become BIGGER than India's rights

India is in MUCH BETTER position to extract the " sea bed " in ANDAMANS rather than Sri Lanka

For some reason A&N islands have always been attracting unwanted attention, iirc during the 50s, Indonesians laid claim to them as well. India getting Andaman Islands was a huge problem for any wannabe power in the SE Asian region.

It would be music to me ears since we'd get the perfect opportunity to pounce on them and chinese will be no where near since they dont put there lives for someone else.

In anycase this is rubbish and at best a fairytale.

See!? I told you, until we get the crapsters out of power, we will keep having every tim, **** and harry claiming this and that. We need Modi now more than ever, he's the only man who once says something, not even CCP would dare to open its mouth:

- China breaks a wind breaker wall, intrude and needles out territory, claims Arunachal, east Ladakh and Sikkim.

- Pakistan claims entire state of J&K, creates terrorism and openly does it proudly.

- Bangladesh is now claiming 14,000 sq kms of land inside our territory.

- Nepali commies brought an "old dispute" out of thin air that was never existent in the history of our two countries.

- Maldives was once claiming Minicoy island.

- Now Lankans are freaking claiming A&N continental shelf!!!

WTF is going on?! Why TF is the entire nation sitting quiet?!

हमने क्या कोई दानघर खोल रखा है को सबको अपना देश हिस्से में देते जाएं? :mad2:

We need to give what the Sinhalas demand in the spirit of friendship and of course if we dont they will go over to china and that will be a huge "strategic" loss. I am already shivering at the thought of that happening.

Today the Andaman continental shelf and tomorrow may be even the Andamans. But then we have to give them otherwise they will go to China.

UNCLOS:

The continental shelf of a coastal State comprises the seabed and
subsoil of the submarine areas that extend beyond its territorial sea
throughout the natural prolongation of its land territory to the outer edge of
the continental margin, or to a distance of 200 nautical miles from the
baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured where the
outer edge of the continental margin does not extend up to that distance.

*******

Information on the limits of the continental shelf beyond
200 nautical miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial
sea is measured shall be submitted by the coastal State to the Commission on
the Limits of the Continental Shelf set up under Annex II on the basis of
equitable geographical representation. The Commission shall make
recommendations to coastal States on matters related to the establishment of
the outer limits of their continental shelf. The limits of the shelf established
by a coastal State on the basis of these recommendations shall be final and
binding

********

The issue however is that if Srilanka's costal and continetal base line extends upto A&N, so does India' claim would include SL sea bed . It is exclusive and mutual.

Do not worry about Srilanka but worry about China which has gained seabed rights of exploring Indian ocean. Has India been sleeping?

The answer is yes, the farting Babus of MEA have alwys been losers !:lol:
