What happens when the Indian Army and Navy try to coexist

New Delhi: The Indian Navy and Indian Army are in talks over the transfer of a large number of defence equipment and troops, with the two sides saying they will work together to develop a strategic partnership to counter threats posed by the “threat of terrorism”.

The Defence Ministry and the National Security Adviser met on Tuesday to discuss the transfer to the Army, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar told reporters after a meeting with Chief of Army Staff Admiral Nirmala Sitharaman.

India’s military chief has been in contact with the Indian army chief on several occasions to try and bring about a resolution of the standoff, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Both sides are in the process of preparing for the next phase of talks on the transfer, the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

The defence minister said the two countries will cooperate in the next phases of discussions to tackle the challenges posed by terrorism and other security threats.

The Indian military is one of the biggest in the world, and has a large presence in Afghanistan, the Indo-China border, the Arabian Sea, and the Gulf of Aden.

Its operations are conducted in close co-operation with the Chinese military, with each side providing counter-terrorism and counter-piracy capabilities.

The standoff between the two militaries is the result of a dispute over control of the Gwadar Port of Gwadars, which lies near Pakistan’s border.

The Chinese military maintains a naval base at Gwadaris naval base in Pakistan.
