India rejects China''s request to probe its territorial waters.
The media reported that the Chinese requested Indian authorities to allow its four warships to enter Indian territorial waters in Andman sea to search for the missing Malaysian plane, but it was "politely turned down" by the government.
The media quoting top military authorities said the military outpost in India's Andaman and Nicobar overlooks the Malacca Strait and dominates the Six-Degree Channel.
"We don't want Chinese warships sniffing around in the area on the pretext of hunting for the missing jetliner or anti-piracy patrols," the media reported quoting senior Indian officials. Indian Navy has already deployed four warships in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Sea and West of Andaman Islands in a bid to locate signs of the missing air plane which mysteriously disappeared after it took off from Malaysia two weeks ago.
The multinational hunt for the Boeing 777 aircraft, which mysteriously disappeared from radar carrying 239 people en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, has so far failed to produce any result. No solid leads about its whereabouts have been found so far.(end) wk.hs KUNA 211458 Mar 14NNNN
