    Indian warships chase away Chinese vessel near A&N Islands,amid ongoing shadow-boxing in IOR.

    NEW DELHI: Indian warships drove away a Chinese oceanic research vessel indulging in suspicious activity near the strategically-located Andaman and Nicobar archipelago recently, amidst the continuing shadow-boxing between New Delhi and Beijing for the same strategic space and influence in the Indian Ocean Region
    (IOR).
    “Our stand is that if you have to do anything in our EEZ (exclusive economic zone), you have to notify us first,” said Navy chief Admiral Karambir Singh on Tuesday, confirming the
    Chinese vessel Shi Yan-1 was forced to leave the area after it was first detected by P-8I maritime patrol aircraft a few weeks ago.

    Chinese warships and research vessels have often been detected indulging in such suspected spying activities in the region. “EEZs are international waters, but if we find Chinese ships engaging in what we perceive to be military manoeuvres, we chase them away,” said another senior officer.
