New Delhi: The United Kingdom has officially joined the Indian Navy’s Information Fusion Centre-Indian Ocean Region (IFC-IOR) based in Gurugram & deputed its officer for it. The Information Fusion Centre keeps an eye on the Indian Ocean with a key focus on the early mobilization of resources in case of any crisis.

UK’s Lieutenant Commander Stephen Smith will be deputed full time at the centre and the development is part of the 2030 roadmap announced by Indian and British PMs after the May virtual summit. UK is the 5th country to send its officer, after US, Japan, France and Australia.

“Coming as a natural outgrowth of the strong partnership between the Royal Navy and Indian Navy, this is a significant step up in our shared maritime domain awareness effort, and boldly underlines UK and Indian desires to work together in the Indian Ocean Region and wider Indo-Pacific”, said Admiral Tony Radakin KCB ADC, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff.
