Rajnath Singh Britain Visit: India and Britain together are going to increase the tension in China. Britain will show its friendship with India by sending its warships to the Indian Ocean to show its status to China which is showing its dominance in the sea. This was agreed upon during the visit of Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh to Britain.
The British government on Wednesday unveiled plans to deploy Royal Navy warships to the Indian Ocean region later this year for operations and training with the Indian military. This is being seen as a sign of strengthening strategic relations between Britain and India. UK Defense Minister Grant Shapps said the Littoral Response Group (LRG) will be deployed this year and the Carrier Strike Group (CRG) in 2025 for joint India-UK training. Shapps co-chaired the India-UK Defense Industry CEO Roundtable with Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday following bilateral talks.
The deployment of Britain’s most advanced naval capabilities has been cited by the UK Ministry of Defense (MOD) as a decisive step in strengthening security ties with India. “There is no doubt that the world is increasingly competitive, so it is vital that we continue to grow our strategic relationships with key partners like India,” Shapps said.
“Together, we share common security challenges and are steadfast in our commitment to maintaining an open and prosperous Indo-Pacific,” he said. It is clear that this relationship continues to grow from strength to strength, but we must continue to work together to maintain global security in the face of threats and challenges that seek to destabilize and harm us.”

LRG is a Royal Navy task group consisting of at least two warships. CRG is an aircraft carrier warship of the Royal Navy. The CRG’s first deployment was to the Indo-Pacific region in 2021, where it conducted joint exercises with Indian forces. After the conference, Defense Minister Singh posted on social media platform ‘X’, ‘Great interaction with industry leaders and CEOs (Chief Executive Officers) at the UK-India Defense CEO Roundtable in London.’ He said, ‘India envisions a prosperous partnership with the UK for collaboration, co-creation and co-innovation. By coordinating the powers of both the countries, we can do big work together.
