China nervous over India-US-Japan joint Malabar exercise?



New Delhi: Is China getting jitters? The news of joint Malabar Naval exercise between India, United States and Japan is making China certainly nervous.Earlier China had tried to play cool on the news of Malabar exercises between the navies of India, the US and Japan, saying it has "no objection" to normal cooperation and hoped that it was not directed against any third country.


But it couldn't pose to be as cool for a long time. The state media of China has hit out at this annual exercise saying it is a threat to China's security concerns and economic interests.


Being an annual exercise, the Malabar aims to achieve deeper military ties among the three navies in the strategically-critical Indo-Pacific region.


"As we have said before, we have no objection to normal bilateral relationship and cooperation among relevant countries," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang had told media briefing here on Friday


Reports had informed earlier that said the annual naval exercises involving the aircraft carriers of the US, Indian and Japanese navies would be held June 9 in the Indian Ocean


India's INS Vikramaditya along with US aircraft carrier Nimitiz and Japan's helicopter carrier Izumo are taking part in the exercises involving frontline ships and aircraft, stated to be biggest involving the three countries


"We hope that this kind of relationship and cooperation will not be directed against third country and that it will be conducive to the regional peace and security," Geng said


Chinese official media in the past alleged that the exercises were aimed at China.
