India has reacted cautiously to the docking of a People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) submarine in Sri Lanka from 7-14 September.

The Type 039 (Song)-class boat, on long-range deployment to escort PLAN warships conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden, docked at the Colombo International Container Terminal, which China funded and helped to build.

“We continuously monitor them [the PLAN], see their deployments, and what challenges they pose for us,” Indian Navy (IN) Chief of Staff Admiral Robindra Dhowan told reporters in New Delhi on 25 September.

“Our warships, submarines, and aircraft are always ready to face any challenge,” he added at a function to mark the 50th anniversary of the Directorate of Naval Design.
