India to Hold Naval Exercise with Vietnam

NEW DELHI: India will hold its first naval exercise with Vietnam, as part of the overall strategy to steadily build military ties with nations in the Asia Pacific region with an eye firmly on a confrontationist and expansionist China, even as defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman is slated to visit Hanoi next month.

Three Indian warships on operational deployment to South East Asia and North West Pacific region, stealth frigate INS Sahyadri, missile corvette INS Kamorta and fleet tanker INS Shakti, will enter the Tien Sa Port (Danang) on Monday.

“From May 21 to 25, there will be a professional interaction between personnel of the two navies, official calls and interaction with dignitaries of the Vietnamese Government. On completion of the harbour phase, warships from the two navies would be undertaking the exercise,” said Navy spokesperson Captain D K Sharma.

With defence cooperation being a vital component of the “comprehensive strategic partnership” between the two countries, Sitharaman is scheduled to visit Vietnam in June to further bolster bilateral military ties. The chief of general staff of the Vietnam People's Army and the commander-in chief of Vietnam People's Navy are also slated to visit India later this year.

The two countries are wary of China’s aggressive tactics in Asia-Pacific, especially the contentious South China Sea, and have steadily cranked up their bilateral military ties over the last few years. 

There have also been a series of high-level visits to Vietnam, with PM Narendra Modi visiting Hanoi in September 2016 and announcing a new $500 million defence line of credit.



After inking a “joint vision statement on defence for 2015-2020” in May 2015, the two countries also decided to elevate their “strategic partnership” to “comprehensive strategic partnership” during Modi’s visit in September 2016.

India has also offered the BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles as well as the Akash surface-to-air missile defence systems to Vietnam.

India is also set to train Vietnamese fighter pilots to fly the Sukhoi-30 fighter jets, much like it has been tutoring sailors from that country on the complex art of operating Kilo-class submarines for the last four years, as earlier reported by TOI.

Apart from regular port calls by warships, the Indian Navy cooperates with the Vietnam People’s Navy on a wide range of issues from operational interactions and training to logistics support and exchange of experts.

India, of course, has also stepped up defence cooperation, ranging from expansion in military visits and exercises to training and technology-sharing, with other Southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia.

As for the South China Sea, India has repeatedly stressed the need for all to respect the freedom of navigation in international waters, right of passage and overflight, unimpeded commerce and access to resources in accordance with the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

  1. Maaf Out of topic guys,

    Dapat dari :
    https://swa.co.id/swa/trends/askrindo-beri-penjaminan-proyek-alutsista

    "Perhatian pemerintah yang begitu besar terhadap bidang Pertahanan dan Keamanan dapat dilihat dari besarnya alokasi dana APBN yang dianggarkan untuk keperluan perawatan, pengadaan dan pembangunan alutsista, yakni Rp 105 triliun atau 12,47% dari APBN tahun 2018."

    Saya ulang : dianggarkan untuk keperluan perawatan, pengadaan dan pembangunan alutsista, yakni Rp 105 triliun atau 12,47% dari APBN tahun 2018.

    105 trilyun untuk alutsista ?

    Padahal anggaran Kemhan hanya 107 trilyun lho.

    Lha kalo 105 trilyun buat alutsista sedang anggaran kemhan hanya 107 trilyun, apa cukup untuk gaji sekian ratus ribu tentara hanya 2 trilyun ?

    Ataukah 105 trilyun ini dibagi-bagi ke berbagai instansi selain kemhan sehingga muncul belanja yang aneh2 seperti ada BUMN beli A400m ? Trus ada usulan aneh opv bakamla dikasih rudal ?

    Xixixixi

    1. Trus di artikel itu pula disebut :

      "PT Askrindo (Persero) menjalin kerja sama dengan Perkumpulan Industri Pertahanan Swasta Nasional (Pinhantanas)."

      "Potensi bisnis dengan Pinhantanas relatif besar dan kami optimistis bisa berperan dalam proyek-proyek Pinhantanas yang pada tahun 2018 berjumlah sebesar Rp 25 triliun."

      25 triliun untuk industri pertahanan swasta lokal saja ?

      Gileeeee coooooyyyy

    7. Mas Palu,

      Tapi kalo dibilang alutsista untuk pertahanan dan KEAMANAN mungkin bisa jadi kalau dikumpul-kumpulin bisa jadi dapat 105 trilyun.

      Inget aja security agency kita itu buanyaaak sekali, semua butuh sesuatu yang bisa dijadikan platform untuk rudal.

      Contoh :
      Bea Cukai butuh kapal dan helikopter
      KPLP butuh kapal
      Polisi butuh panser, kapal dan helikopter dan pesawat serta drone.
      Coast guard butuh pesawat, helikopter, kapal.
      BNPT butuh panser dan helikopter
      BNN butuh kapal dan helikopter
      KKP butuh kapal, pesawat, helikopter
      Basarnas butuh kapal dan helikopter
      KPK sejatinya butuh helikopter juga
      Kohanudnas butuh pesawat tempur
      AD butuh panser, tank, pesawat, helikopter bahkan butuh kapal
      AL butuh panser, tank, pesawat, helikopter dan kapal
      AU butuh pesawat, pesawat tempur, helikopter, panser.

      Kalau itu dikumpulin jadi satu, bisa dapat 105 trilyun untuk perawatan, pembangunan dan pengadaan alutsista kah ?

      Hapus
    8. O iya,
      Kemenhub, KKP, Kohanudnas, AU,AL,AD butuh radar.
      BIN butuh peralatan komunikasi dan pemecah kode enkripsi.
      BASARNAS, AU, AL butuh drone.

      Hapus
