Indian Navy's Evacuation Operation in Lebanon

インド海軍による、インド人(スリランカ、バングラデシュ人も含む)救出作戦に関する報道等。

Rajat Pandit, "4 Indian warships to dock at Beirut for evacuation," Times of India, 19 Jul 2006, <http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1773677.cms>  (19 Jul 2006)

The four warships - destroyer INS Mumbai, guided missile frigates INS Brahmaputra and INS Betwa, and auxiliary fleet tanker INS Shakti - were "exiting" the Suez Canal after a successful overseas deployment mission when they were asked to "turn back" and head for the Lebanese coast.

"Sri Lanka, incidentally, has also sought our help in evacuating its citizens from Lebanon. Our warships will reach Beirut on Wednesday morning. We are already talking with Israel, which is allowing evacuation ships through the blockade it has imposed around Lebanon," said a senior officer.

"India to begin Beirut evacuation," BBC,  20 July 2006,<http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/5191366.stm > (Jul 20 2006)

There are an estimated 12,000 Indians in Lebanon. Most of them are unskilled or semi-skilled labourers working in factories and industrial units. Many of them have been living in Lebanon for more than two decades.

中略

  Separately, Bangladesh has asked for help locating and evacuating its nationals stranded in the country.

Dhaka says there are at least 10,000 Bangladeshis in Lebanon. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) says the figure could be much higher.

Bangladesh to boost its military capabilities

バングラデシュの国防力整備動向関連。

バングラデシュ軍の動向で注目すべきは、近代化の一環として「3次元」能力の構築を目指し、潜水艦の購入を決定していることである。また、パキスタンからの哨戒艇購入も決定されており、軍事協力、ベンガル湾での勢力推移という2点で注目する価値は大きい。

報道例

Jane’s Defence Weekly, 7 Apr 2004,p.20.

Nazrul Islam, "Bangladesh to procure submarines, patrol aircrafts to guard maritime boundary," ANI, 22 May 2006, < http://www.newkerala.com/news2.php?action=fullnews&id=63354>  (15 Jul 2006)

In line with the government's decision, the Navy will procure four submarines and two maritime patrol aircrafts and other equipment in a bid to protect its maritime territory, part of which has reportedly been intruded by neighbours - India and Myanmar.

"The Bangladesh Navy is undergoing a process of modernisation and transformation from a ‘green water' navy to a dedicated powerful ‘blue water' ocean going navy with plans to introduce four modern submarines, additional guided missile frigates, two maritime patrol aircraft, four missile corvettes, additional offshore patrol vessels, six patrol crafts ..." said a report in the website of the Bangladesh Navy.

The army says the government could have alarmed by the illegal oil and gas exploration by the India and Myanmar into Bangladesh ‘s sovereign water territory. India started exploration on 18,000 sq km territory, while Myanmar carried out survey on a 17,000 sq km area.

パキスタンから潜水艦を調達?

Josy Joseph, "Pakistan to gift old submarines to Bangladesh Navy," <http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1033053> (28 Jul 2006)

Sources said Pakistan would be refurbishing two of its Daphne class submarines, which are being decommissioned presently, and give it to Bangladesh Navy. Pakistan Navy had acquired four Daphne class submarined from France in 1969-70.

上記報道への否定報道。 

"No gift of old Pakistani submarines for Bangladesh," PakTribune, June 05, 2006, <http://paktribune.com/news/index.php?id=145891>(6 Jun 2006)

The spokesman, quoting a statement from the Bangladesh Navy, said no deal was struck between the two countries on the submarines during Bangladesh Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's official visit to Pakistan from February 12-14 this year .

ベンガル湾における海洋権益紛争も、バングラデシュ海軍の整備動向に影響してると思われる。

"B'desh charges India with poaching on oil, gas," IANS, JUNE 29, 2006, <http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1689937.cms >  (2 Jul 2006)

Bangladesh has once again charged India with inviting oil and gas exploration tenders in un-demarcated areas of the Bay of Bengal, media reports said.

Prime Minister Khaleda Zia told the Jatiya Sangsad (parliament) that Dhaka had lodged a strong protest with New Delhi on this and that she had personally spoken to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during their meeting in March.

上記の海上境界が未画定の部分に関しては、以下を参照。

インドとバングラデシュとの海上境界問題は、インドの主張する等距離/中間線の原則と、バングラデシュの主張する平衡性の原則を巡る相違や、沖合いに所在するニュー・ムーア島の領有権の争いである。双方はこの問題を巡り、74年以来会談を続けている 。Rahul  Roy-Chaudhury, India’s Maritime Security, (New Delhi: Knowledge World, 2000),pp.60-61.より要約。
