'Statement by spokesperson of High Commission of India'

Responding to a query regarding reports about the deployment of a submarine in Thootukudi by Mr. Rifthi Ali, Editor of Vidiyal.lk, spokesperson of High Commission of India said "We have seen media reports regarding purported 'permanent deployment' of an Indian Navy submarine at Thoothukudi in India. These speculative media reports also ascribed certain reasons to the purported deployment. The High Commission does not comment on such operational matters, including those that pertain the Indian Navy. However, decisions regarding the deployment of submarines or other national assets by India are taken by the Indian authorities concerned in line with several factors, such as operational requirements, and so as to fully serve the objective of protecting India and her interests.
