India has signed a $3 billion deal to lease a third Russian nuclear-powered submarine for 10 years, giving Delhi a boost in the Indian Ocean against arch-rivals Pakistan and China, media reports said.

據媒體報道,印度已經簽署了一項30億美元的協議,將在10年內租賃第三艘俄羅斯核動力潛艇,從而幫助印度在印度洋上對抗主要對手巴基斯坦和中國。

The deal -- which according to the reports took months to negotiate -- comes as tensions run high between India and Pakistan following their biggest standoff in years, and as Chinese influence grows in the region.

根據報道,這項協議花費了數月的時間進行談判。與此同時,印度和巴基斯坦經歷了多年來最嚴重的對峙,兩國關系高度緊張,中國在該地區的影響力也在增強。

A defence ministry spokesman declined to confirm the agreement to AFP but the reports said that the submarine, the third India has leased from Russia, would be delivered by 2025.

印度國防部發言人拒絕向法新社證實這一協議,但報道稱,印度從俄羅斯租賃的第三艘潛艇將于2025年交付使用。



China has made inroads in Sri Lanka and Maldives, countries that India considers to be in its sphere of influence, through its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

通過一帶一路倡議中國已經在斯里蘭卡和馬爾代夫取得了進展,這兩個國家被印度認為是印度的東南亞勢力范圍。

India has raised concerns about the initiative as a major section passes through Pakistan-administered Kashmir, a disputed territory which was again the fuse for the latest crisis.

印度對這一倡議表示關切,因為其中一個主要路段經過巴基斯坦管理的克什米爾,這一有爭議的領土再次成為最近危機的導火索。
