外文标题：Navy monitoring Chinese activity in Indian Ocean: Navy Chief
NEW DELHI: Against the backdrop of incursions in Ladakh, Navy today said it was continuously monitoring the activity of the Chinese Navy in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).
"Chinese warships are deployed in the Indian Ocean Region and we are continuously monitoring them and see what is their deployment. Along with it, our aircraft, submarines and warships are always deployed to face any challenge.
"....IOR is our area of operations and we see what is Chinese deployment in IOR and how it can create challenges for us and how we can face them....We are always ready," Navy chief Admiral Robin Dhowan told reporters here.
He was asked to comment on the situation in Chumar in Ladakh where Chinese troops intruded more than two weeks back and are engaged in stand-off with Indian soldiers on the sidelines of the golden jubilee of the Navy Warship Design Bureau.
The Navy chief said only the Army was competent to comment on the particular incident in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said it was the Navy's responsibility to look after Indian maritime interests in IOR. "We are always ready to face them. Our economic interests are there in the maritime region and their protection is also our responsibility."
In the recent times, the Chinese Navy has been deploying its warships and submarines in IOR.

If our Defence Forces are at alert then there is nothing to worry and if needed show aggressiveness and assertive to deal with the incursions very stiffly and with arrogance and let the Indian Flag fly HIGH.

Our defense forces are in shambles due to corruption at all levels especially by the politicians!

Time to get 3rd aircraft carrier to cover the three sides of the Indian Penisula...one each for Eastern, Western & Southern Commands.

Hats off for our defense forces!
Thankx to congress govt who has left us with 16 old submarines in which only half of them work at any given time compared to 65 chinese submarines. As much as I like modi. Its very high time to go spend 100 billion in the next two years on defence compared to meager 35 billion. I understand the whole " make in india". Slogan, but a strong defence is a must. Dont waste anytime designing and then making anything in india at the moment, but buy it already made. We can focus on making indegenious at home later on. Start buying some used submarines from germany, u.s, france and russia at a reasonable cost, while starting to build our own at a planned manner. Buy 200 apache attack helicopters instead of 25 and line em up on the chinese border, so the chinese know we mean business. Jai hind.

It is not just monitoring but some action plan is required to combat offences as well
Our army should focus more on Chinese army then these Pakistan, as the later ones are known as dragons, can be attacked without any warning as their appetite never ends for land and resources
