Por • 14 ago, 2013 • Category: Política

The unveiling of its first home-built aircraft carrier is significant. It will boost India’s military power and increase its influence over the Indian Ocean,» Fu Xiaoqiang, an expert on South Asian studies at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, told the Global Times. Analysts said New Delhi has long sought to build carrier groups to bolster its defense capability, but it will not change the regional military balance or have much influence on the military situation in Asia. «Without supporting missile systems, the aircraft carrier is no more than a target,» Fu said. India relies heavily on other countries for its weaponry. Statistics showed 70 percent of its weapons and military systems are imported from overseas, mainly from Russia, according to China Radio International.
