Navies of India, Australia to deepen cooperation in Indo-Pacific region

New Delhi, Jun 4 (UNI) Having a shared interest in promoting maritime security and safety, the navies of India and Australia will deepen their cooperation and strengthen maritime domain awareness in the Indo-Pacific region through enhanced exchange of information.

India and Australia will also work to enhance civil maritime cooperation between law enforcement agencies and coast guard cooperation.

In his first-ever Virtual Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Thursday discussed maritime cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.

Both the Prime Ministers decided on a Shared Vision for Maritime Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region to harness opportunities and meet challenges together as Comprehensive Strategic Partners.

During the virtual summit, both the countries reiterated their commitment to promoting peace, security, stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region.

They have a shared interest in ensuring freedom of navigation and overflight in the Indo-Pacific region and maintaining open, safe and efficient sea lanes for transportation and communication.

'With a shared maritime geography and a deep and long-standing friendship, India and Australia are natural partners to work together towards realisation of this shared vision,' the joint declaration on a Shared Vision for Maritime Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific between India and Australia said.

'India and Australia are committed to supporting a rules-based maritime order that is based on respect for sovereignty and international law, particularly the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS),' it added.

'They have common concerns regarding the strategic, security and environmental challenges in the Indo-Pacific maritime domain.

'These include activities and actions in the maritime domain that are inconsistent with international law, particularly UNCLOS, including terrorism, piracy, drugs and arms smuggling, irregular migration, people smuggling, trafficking in human beings, poaching of marine species, narcotics trafficking and illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing,' it added.
