Navy Chief’s remarks: MEA asks for restraint

The External Affairs Ministry is believed to have objected to the comments by Navy Chief Admiral D K Joshi on the possibility of sending warships to protect Indian economic interests in the South China Sea but has decided not to take up the issue.

Sources said Admiral Joshi explained to the MEA that his comments were based on questions asked on the Navy's ability to protect Indian interests in the South China Sea. However, his comments, responded to by China, have prompted a call for restrain on sensitive matters by service chiefs.
