The tactical shift in modern warfare has started to reflect in the weapons used by enemies. The development of drone technology is posing a serious threat to the internal security of India. Pakistan is frequently using drones to smuggle drugs, fake currency, and weapons into India to destabilize the situation.
Recently, Jammu & Kashmir police shot down a Pakistani drone that was carrying a payload of magnetic bombs and UBGL(Under Barrel Grenade launcher) grenades along the international border in the Hiranagar sector of Kathua district.
Police Media Center Jammu informing about the incident stated that “on the basis of drones activity observed in the area of Talli Hariya Chak under police station Rajbagh in district Kathua, Early morning search parties of police were being regularly sent in the general area”.
Updating about the drone the police said, “today early this morning, the search party observed a North Korea drone coming from the border side and fired at it. The drone was shot down. It has a payload attachment with it which is being screened by the bomb disposal experts”.
Usually, China directly supplies drones to Pakistan but the use of North Korean drones reflects a different kind of sinister relationship. It is an open secret that Pakistan has helped North Korea to develop nuclear technology for military purposes. Further, both Pakistan & North Korea are being supported by China through every sinister means. In a way, China is creating two domestic monsters for their sinister global plans.
The use of North Korean drones by Pakistan reflects the deep-sinister collaboration of the three. It is a matter of fact that North Korea can not even feed its own population. How will they develop and export drones to third countries?
Reports suggest that about 50% of Chinese foreign aid goes to North Korea. Although harsh international sanctions against North Korea do not allow many internationalized countries to trade with North Korea but Chinese with other means support them. Further, China is directly involved in the capacity building of the modern weapons system of North Korea and the use of North Korean drones by Pakistan is proof of this.
Reports by 38 North, a North Korean Watchers group suggests, that North Korea acquired its first Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) from China sometime between 1988 and 1990, and by late 1993, they started manufacturing reconnaissance UAVs based on the Chinese D-4. Further, the similarity in the design and technology of the North Korean drones with Chinese UAV technology gives an idea about the deep-rooted cooperation between them. The drone shot down by the J&K police is also made with the support of China and North Korea is providing logistical support in manufacturing and Pakistan is using it for terror activities.
All three, China, Pakistan, and North Korea are nuclear-capable countries and all the three do not believe in the rule of law. Sitting on the nuclear warhead, they have become a threat to international peace and security
Collaboration between China, Pakistan, and North Korea will pose a greater threat to India. China is supporting both North Korea and Pakistan with military weapons capacity building. Moreover, there has been a general trend that whenever internal drifting in both China & Pakistan increases, the Line of Control and Line of Actual Control (LAC) becomes volatile. And, it is a matter of fact that both countries are internally going through tough times. On one hand, Pakistan’s terror activities & infiltration are increasing along the borders on the other, China is strengthening its position along the LAC. And, Now China has got another satellite state for its nefarious agenda. The grouping of three rogue countries will not disturb peace just in India but it is a serious threat to the world.
