'Will raise our concerns': India on US Navy's op near Lakshadweep Islands

Apr 09, 2021 21:16 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday said that the central government was continuously monitoring the transit of USS John Paul Jones while it conducted a freedom of navigation operation near Lakshadweep Islands on Wednesday "without New Delhi's prior consent". The govt said it has raised its concerns to the United States through diplomatic channels.
The MEA went on to say, India stated position on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea is that the Convention does not authorise other States to carry out in the Exclusive Economic Zone and on the continental shelf, military exercises or manoeuvres, in particular those involving the use of weapons or explosives, without the consent of the coastal state.
Earlier in the day, the US Navy said that it conducted an operation near the Lakshadweep Islands on Wednesday without India's prior consent to challenge the country's "excessive" maritime claims.
