Countering the mighty people’s liberation army-navy in the Indian Ocean: A strategic response of Indian Navy
The twenty-first century has changed the prevailing power equations among several countries across the world. India, being heavily affected by the pandemic has also undergone certain reforms in its maritime doctrines towards the neighbors; especially China. Along with other growing international problems like terrorism, environmental degradation, and cyber warfare, the security of state borders has been slowly becoming an important factor in world politics; whereas national interest is still a crucial factor in shaping a country’s security policies. This paper would try to attempt to find the strategies that concern the growing turmoil between India and China regarding the Indian Ocean while taking into consideration the post twenty-first-century development of both naval forces, the current India-China border dispute and its reflection on the Indian and the Chinese Navy. It also aims to explore the strategic cooperation between the Pakistan Navy and the Chinese Navy in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) and the probable strategic balance on the behalf of a potent Blue Water force Indian Navy.
