SOURCE: MANJUNATH REDDY/ FOR MY TAKE / IDRW.ORG Recently China warned India and the United States from providing any level of technical assistance to Taiwan for development of local Diesel Submarine fleet which no country wants to provide due to Chinese bullying tactics for over a decade now. Germany, France, Japan and Sweden who all can manufacture and sell pretty advance diesel Submarines for over years have backed away under Chinese pressure for the supply of their submarines which forced Taiwan to start an ambitious program to develop submarines locally. Taiwan has asked world community for the supply of critical technology which will help them assist to develop next-generation Diesel Submarine which will come handy in defense of the island nation against Chinese forces. The United States of America is very keen to help but doesn’t manufacture Diesel Submarines but has encouraged many allies to share technologies related to the submarines with Taiwan but without much support. India or other hand doesn’t manufacture Diesel Submarine on its own but had developed many key Indigenous technologies which will play a crucial role in the development of indigenous submarine in near future. a few of the Key technologies which India has developed is what Taiwan has asked from the world community. India on other for years has avoided selling weapons to countries who have some level of conflicts with China in the region, Taiwan which China claims as its own only further complicates the situation for India without much in return. India instead of providing direct technical assistance can help train their engineers and technicians which can help them develop technologies which they can develop locally for their submarine program, instead of picking up a fight with China for little monetary reasons without getting much in return strategically for the country.
