New Delhi: India on Saturday called for freedom of navigation though the South China Sea where Beijing has territorial disputes with several nations.
Defence Minister AK Antony made the demand at the 11th Asia security meet organised by the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Singapore.
He said as countries seek to bolster their capabilities to respond to perceived challenges in the maritime domain, there was also a need to avoid conflicts and build consensus.
