PM Modi, Prez Solih inaugurate coastal surveillance radar system built by India

MALE (PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Saturday jointly inaugurated the coastal surveillance radar system built by India as the two leaders held wide-ranging talks to bolster their bilateral cooperation in key areas like defence and maritime security.

The inauguration assumes significance as China views the Maldives as key to its Maritime Silk Road project in the Indian Ocean as it has already acquired Hambantota port in Sri Lanka and Djibouti in the Horn of Africa.

The Costal Surveillance Radar is the primary sensor for Integrated Costal Surveillance System.

The Coastal Surveillance Radar Systems (CSRS) programme contributes in creating a network of information to maritime domain awareness in the strategic Indian Ocean region.

According to defence officials, India has an older version of these radars in Seychelles, Mauritious and Sri Lanka.

Modi arrived in the Indian Ocean archipelago on Saturday on his first foreign visit after re-election as Prime Minister to strengthen the bilateral ties, reflecting the importance India attaches to its 'Neighbourhood First' policy.

The joint inauguration came as the two countries signed six agreements.

The two sides have also signed a technical agreement on sharing white shipping information between the Indian Navy and the Maldives National Defence Force.

Prime Minister Modi and President Solih jointly inaugurated the composite training facility of the Maldives National Defence Force in Maafilafushi, and the coastal surveillance radar system by a remote link, the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
