On the sidelines of #UNGA, 🇫🇷Minister @MinColonna participated this week in two trilateral meetings (with 🇮🇳 & 🇦🇪, then 🇮🇳 & 🇦🇺). Formats revealing of French strategic positioning in the #Indopacific. 1 / 6
First on Monday with @DrJaishankar & @ABZayed, for a trilateral dialogue upgraded to Ministerial level for the 1st time. The 3 countries aspire to be key security stakeholders and ‘balancing powers’ for the #IndianOcean
Second today with @DrJaishankar & @SenatorWong, resumption of a trilateral format that did not convene since #AUKUS. It shows that water passed under the bridge with 🇦🇺, thanks to the change of Government(s), with both sides showing willingness to repair ties

.@DrSJaishankar: Three things keep me up at night — the shocks that the international order is experiencing, particularly in the past two years—the #COVID19 pandemic, #Afghanistan & #Ukraine, & the friction between the #West & #Russia, the #USA and #China

#Raisina2022 @MEAIndia
.@DrSJaishankar: You need to develop an operational matrix to respond to a changing world. In our case, especially since 2014-15, we have had greater clarity on how we engage the world—concentric circles, neighbourhood first, but also a conscious policy engaging the major powers.

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

#Breaking: Fear of another attack on #Israeli-owned vessels.
Following the attack on the ship of businessman Rami Unger at the end of February, there are reports of damage to another Israeli-owned ship. The details are still vague.
Network reports claim that a ship named "Lori" that sailed in the #IndianOcean on its way to India was hit by #missiles. The ship is owned by ECT. Nahul Ltd. (XT MANAGEMENT LTD) from #Haifa. According to reports, no casualties & minor damage was caused to the ship.
The ship, LORI (IMO number 9631125) has been sailing for the last few days. The ship left the port of Dar es Salaam in #Tanzania on March 20 on its way to the port of #Mundra in India. The vessel performed a sharp & strange maneuver off the coast of #Oman btw 3:50 and 4:55 pm.

West of Diego Garcia, #India is Building an Island Base of its Own

The small, remote Mauritian island of North Agalega, located in the south-western #IndianOcean, 700 miles north of #Mauritius, has major airfield & port developments well underway.…
2) India sought access to the islands in 2015 to develop as an air and naval staging point for surveillance of the south-west Indian Ocean – in a sense redolent of facilities other nations operate, such as the joint US-UK base at Diego Garcia.
3) The most recent images from Google Earth to the same location as seen in 2014 shows a new 3000-meter runway – capable of hosting the Indian Navy’s new Boeing P-8I maritime patrol aircraft – and considerable apron overshadows the existing airfield in the middle of the island.

Previously Unknown #Whale Population Discovered in #Indian Ocean Thanks to Their Distinct Song…

(📸:Robert Baldwin/Environment Society of Oman)
In a rather surprising, yet exciting discovery, researchers have spotted a new population of blue #whales swimming in the western #IndianOcean. The discovery is unique as the population was spotted from the unusual song sung by these exotic sea creatures.
Blue whales or #Balaenoptera musculus are the largest living animals on the planet and they use songs to communicate and socialise. They are often identified by their unique low-frequency sounds, which can be louder than a jet engine, with the pitch reaching up to 188 decibels.

THREAD: Referenced in the Indian defence minister's interview today, here's spring 1998 iview w/ India DefMin George Fernandes, where he was v blunt (& prescient) abt China.

Q: China is potential danger no. 1?
A: Potential threat no. 1, shall we say.
1998. Def Min Fernandes: there's reluctance to face the reality that China’s intentions need to be questioned..
Q: What is this reluctance due to?
A: ..primarily rooted in having to face the challenges which accepting this situation or this reality will kind of confront u with 2/
In the 1998, Fernandes agreed that "Chinese military activities are beginning to encircle India." Mentioned:
- nukes, Sukhois, elongated airfields in Tibet,

Thread: I’ve developed a passion for photography. Starting to take photos daily to share with my twitter fam🤗
Spent the day on the island of Ilisi near #Kismayo with the local young men who bring fish to our city. Incredible to witness their joy & love for fishing. #Somalia
The island of #Ilisi is an hour away from #Kismayo and only local fishermen live there. It’s so clean & breathtaking. A perfect place for a day swim with the family. #Somalia
The catch of the day is not your ordinary fish, but lobsters 😍

hearing—"#China's Worldwide #Military Expansion" is a dramatic bellwether of growing concerns in Washington & beyond.

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:
CAPT Jim Fanell, USN Ret, former @USPacificFleet N2:

"today, the PLA Navy consists of over 330 surface ships & 66 submarines, nearly 400 combatants. As of 4 May 2018, the @USNavy consists of 283 battle force ships: 211 surface ships and 72 submarines."
"By 2030, it is estimated [by Fanell & @SCheneyPeters in their chapter in @NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute's Chinese Naval Shipbuilding volume… @USNIBooks that] the PLANavy will consist of some 550 ships: 450 surface ships & 99 submarines."
