The army that crushed democracy in Myanmar has purchased a Ming-class Type 035 conventional submarine from Chinese Dragon. This submarine was inducted into the Navy of Myanmar last week. During this, Myanmar’s brutal military dictator Senior General Ming Aung Huling was also present. Earlier, Myanmar had taken a one kilo class submarine from India. After this deal, the Chinese dragon had flared up and the official siren Global Times had vented its anger on India.
According to the news of Irrawaddy, this Chinese-made submarine has been designed for dual purpose i.e. attack and training. China is continuously providing fighter jets and naval warships to the military junta showing cruelty to the people of Myanmar. Myanmar has also bought state-of-the-art fighter jets from Russia and Pakistan. People are fiercely opposing China’s support to Myanmar’s army.
Myanmar took a submarine of kilo class from India
Anti-China riots have erupted in many places in Myanmar. The people of Myanmar set fire to Chinese companies. Supporters of democracy have asked the public to boycott Chinese goods. Earlier, Myanmar had taken a submarine of kilo class from India. This submarine was retired after being in the Indian Navy for a long time. India upgraded it and gave it to the Navy of Myanmar. This was Myanmar’s first submarine.
After this purchase, the Global Times criticized Myanmar and the Government of India. Global Times said that the life of the Indian submarine is over. Upgrading won’t add any features. Irrawaddy said that a secret agreement was signed between China and Myanmar last year regarding this submarine. Earlier, Myanmar had rejected China’s condition in which it had said that the submarine would be repaired by Chinese engineers only. However, whether Myanmar has done so in the latest deal is not yet clear.
China’s movement in the Indian Ocean to Myanmar will increase
Myanmar wants to increase its navy and it wants to buy more caliber kilo class submarines from Russia. Myanmar has now started making warships on its own. According to experts, Myanmar’s purchase of Chinese submarines will increase China’s movement in the Indian Ocean to Myanmar via Andaman. This can increase the tension of the Indian Navy in the Bay of Bengal. China has already been sending its spy ships to this area. Myanmar has included this submarine in its navy at a time when the Indian Foreign Secretary came here a day earlier.
