India Set To Hand Over Submarine To Myanmar To Counter China

International Business Times – India will soon turn over a Russian-made submarine to Myanmar making it the first-ever commissioned submarine for the country formerly known as Burma. The impending transfer is seen as a boost to the bilateral defense cooperation between the two countries and it supports India’s policy to countermeasure any action China may take with Myanmar.
