Eye on China, India urges world for stability in Indian Ocean region
NEW DELHI: In a message unlikely to go unnoticed in Beijing, India has called for nations involved in maritime disputes to exercise self-restraint and not do anything which could affect peace and stability in the Indian Ocean region.
China has continued to build artificial islands in South China Sea (SCS) to validate its claim over 90 per cent of the sea waters and is currently testing a new dredging vessel, described by the media in south-east Asia as a magic island-maker.
Speaking at the inaugural session of second IORA Meeting of Experts for Maritime Safety & Security, foreign secretary S Jaishankar said India encouraged resolution of territorial and maritime disputes through peaceful means in accordance with universally recognised principles.
