Despite the existing differences and competing interests, India and China were working to keep navigational routes in the Indian OceanRegion safe, said chief of Naval Staff admiral Sunil Lanba, on Tuesday.

“We are working with all like-minded nations and we are in dialogue with China as well. In the larger global commons, we all work together to keep the sea lines of communication open,” he said while speaking at the Goa Maritime Symposium at the Naval War College.

Recognizing the evolving maritime challenges, the Indian Navy has accorded a high degree of priority to maritime engagement with countries in the Indian Ocean Region. The Goa Maritime Symposium is one such attempt to bring navies of neighboring countries on a common platform.
