Pakistan Navy on Friday successfully repelled an Indian submarine from entering the country’s territorial waters.

“Pakistan Navy once again proved its vigilance and operational competence by detecting and blocking an Indian submarine from entering in Pakistani waters,” said a statement.

“The unsuspecting submarine was detected and localised south of Pakistani coast on November 16. Thereafter, despite submarine’s desperate efforts to escape detection, it was continuously tracked by Pakistan Navy Fleet units and pushed well clear of our waters.

This thriving encounter of detecting Indian Navy Submarine at high seas and its continued surveillance not only speaks very high of the navy’s anti submarine warfare capability but also reflects the commitment and resolve to defend the sea frontiers, the statement maintained.

On Tuesday, Pakistan Navy said that CPEC’s first cargo containers were safely escorted in the Arabian Sea towards their destination to the Middle East and African countries.

It added that the success of CPEC and the Gwadar Port project was linked to the safe and secure maritime environment in the Indian Ocean region in general and in the Arabian Sea in particular.

Pakistan Navy is attaching high priority to maritime security components of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. The Navy reiterated its call to secure the sea route as it deployed its ships to provide security cover to ensure safe and secure transit of MV Cosco Willington and MV Al Hussein in international waters.

The navy also believes that with the operationalisation of Gwadar port, the maritime traffic to and from Pakistani ports is expected to increase manifold.

The force has also adopted a multi-pronged approach to deal with the prevailing challenges such as beefing up security of the Gwadar Port, conducting security patrols and coastal exercises, enhancing Maritime Domain Awareness and engaging with other Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs).

    Latest in series of many Indian failures to hit Pakistan. Another desperate violation by the Modi govt to plant more Kalbhushans at Gwadar to hurt CPEC. Clearly India’s CPEC madness and Kashmir uprising has totally frustrated the Indians. Our readiness and unity has thwarted all their attempts. We have captured most RAW terrorists in Baluchistan. Brilliant work by Pak Navy. We are all in great spirits. Pakistan zindabad.Recommend

    My feeling is – both the sides of the sub continent make up such stories periodically to boost the morale of their countrymen by their ( so called) exploites. Recommend

    Once they shot Chinese drone toy and made headlines Indian drone destroyed. The army who is yet to win any war even fighting several of them, wants solace in these cheap tactics. Kashmir is still with India and some country lost half of its territory.Recommend
