Índia nega relatos chineses de caçada a submarino

A Indian Navy alega que nenhum de seus submarinos emergiu na região da Somália, militares da Marinha Indiana negaram relatos da mídia de que navios de guerra chineses teriam forçado um de seus submarinos a vir à superfície naquelas águas conturbadas.

Notícias veiculadas na China, diziam que, após ser detectado no sonar, ele teria sido perseguido por dois destróieres [segundo outras fontes o Wuhan -Type 052B - e o Haikou - Type 052C] e por um helicóptero anti-submarino chineses. Os navios chineses estavam a caminho de participar nas patrulhas internacionais antipirataria. Ambos os lados , aparentemente, estavam tentando testar as vulnerabilidades dos sistemas de sonar.

No entanto a marinha indiana garante que nenhum de seus submarinos teve que vir a nona na região. "Nenhum, de nossos submarinos emergiu na região do Golfo de Aden como alegado por uma parcela da mídia chinesa," um portavoz militar informou à imprensa indiana. Vários jornais indianos deram eco a estas alegações, citando fontes navais do país que ainda assim admitiram que seus submarinos acompanharam a movimentação dos navios chineses. "Todas as nações do mundo fazem isso," teria dito um indiano. Submarinos chineses surpreenderam a US Navy em outubro de 2006, ao exitosamente seguir o USS Kitty Hawk pelo Oceano Pacífico.

Diversas versões de um relatório estão circulando na Internet chinesa durante esta semana, incluindo nos portais Sina.com e QQ. Estes alegaram que um impasse tenso ocorreu entre os navios de escolta chineses e o submarino indiano no dia 15 de janeiro próximo ao estreito de Bab Al-Mandab, que separa o Iêmen de Djibuti, no extremo oeste do Golfo de Aden. Os destróieres chineses teriam captado um submarino não identificado nos seus sonares. Os Chineses logo identificaram o alvo como um navio de 70 metros de comprimento armado com 20 torpedos.

Os informes chineses disseram que os navios chineses enviaram um helicóptero antisubmarino para auxiliar na tarefa de acompanhar o submarino, que havia tentado interferir nos sonares dos navios chineses. Eventualmente, os dois destróieres teriam conseguido encurralar o submarino, forçando-o a vir para a superfície. O navio indiano então teria deixado a área sem gerar novas confrontações. A imprensa chinesa disse que o submarino estava acompanhando os navios chineses desde que eles adentraram o Oceano Índico a caminho da Somália.

A Índia, no entanto, negou haver qualquer fundamento nestes fatos, que ainda não apareceram nos canais oficiais de noticias do governo chinês, Xinhua e o China Daily. Em 2008, ocorreram mais de 100 ataques de piratas no Golfo de Aden, por onde passa uma das rotas navais de maior importância do mundo.

Uma Força Tarefa antipirataria da União Européia criada em dezembro foi a primeira destas iniciativas navais. A Índia, o Irã, os EUA e a China estão entre as nações com forças navais operando na costa da Somália.  Fonte : BBC –

India denies Chinese sub reports The Indian navy says none of its submarines surfaced in the area, Indian naval officials have denied media reports that Chinese warships forced an Indian submarine to surface in a stand-off in waters off Somalia. Reports in China said that after the submarine was detected by sonar, it was pursued by two Chinese destroyers and an anti-submarine helicopter. The Chinese ships had been on passage to take part in anti-piracy patrols. The two sides were reportedly trying to test each other's sonar systems for weaknesses. However, the Indian navy says none of its submarines was forced to surface in the area. "None of our submarines surfaced in the Gulf of Aden region as reported in a section of the Chinese media," a naval official told Indian reporters. Several Indian newspapers reported the allegations, and cited Indian naval sources as admitting their submarine had tracked the Chinese warships. "Every nation does it," one was quoted as saying. Chinese submarines surprised the US navy in October 2006, by successfully tracking the USS Kitty Hawk in the Pacific Ocean. Several versions of one report on the incident were circulating on Chinese websites this week, including Sina.com and QQ. These claimed that a tense stand-off occurred between Chinese warships and an Indian submarine on 15 January near the Bab Al-Mandab Strait, which separates Yemen and Djibouti, at the western end of the Gulf of Aden. The Chinese destroyers had picked up an unidentified submarine on their sonar, the reports said. The Chinese navy soon identified it as a 70m-long (230ft) vessel armed with 20 torpedoes. The Chinese reports said the Chinese ships had sent an anti-submarine helicopter to help track the submarine, which had tried to jam the Chinese warships' sonar system. But the two destroyers eventually cornered the submarine and forced it to surface, reports said. The Indian vessel then apparently left without further confrontation. Chinese media said the submarine had been trailing the Chinese ships since they had entered the Indian Ocean on the way to Somalia. But India has denied the reports, which have also not been carried by China's official news outlets, Xinhua and the China Daily. There were more than 100 pirate attacks in 2008 in the Gulf of Adn and Indian Ocean, in what is one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. An EU anti-piracy task force set up in December was the first such naval operation of its kind. India, Iran, the US and China are among other nations with naval forces off Somalia. Source : BBC
