With an eye on China, India hands over submarine to Myanmar
Thursday, 15 October 2020 ()
In a major move that comes amidst the ongoing military confrontation in eastern Ladakh, India has handed over one of its diesel-electric submarines to Myanmar to counter China’s strategic inroads in the region. Myanmar has commissioned the 3,000-tonne submarine INS Sindhuvir, rechristening it UMS Min Ye Thein Kha Thu, and even deployed it during the country’s “Bandoola” fleet exercise, which was inspected by commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing on Thursday.
