NZ Navy chief shares India’s concern on Chinese foray
Sharing India's doubts over Chinese claims that forays by its submarines and ships in Indian Ocean were purely part for anti-piracy operations, the New Zealand Navy Chief on Wednesday said China could be "trying to make sure" that they can indeed go beyond its waters.
Rear Admiral Jack Raymond Steer, Chief of New Zealand Navy, also welcomed US' rebalancing of its naval assets to Asia-Pacific region. "The Chinese will always say one thing and other people will have a different view. The fact that China has been contributing for many years to <g data-gr-id="10">anti-piracy</g> group is a good thing," Steer said.
