INS Vikrant China: The strength of the Indian Navy has increased manifold as it has got the indigenously built aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. With this, India has joined the list of select countries which have indigenous capability to build such large warships. China is deeply irritated by this news. Seeing the progress of India, it is burning from within. This is the reason why the first Chinese state-run Global Times tried to mock INN Vikrant by comparing it to its third aircraft carrier Type 003 Fujian. Then later he changed his stance and advised India about the western countries.
Global Times has written in its editorial that India should avoid flattering Western countries. The article states that Western countries are projecting the Chinese Navy as one of the major targets of the Indian aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. They are provoking tensions between India and China. This will create opinion among the Indian people about China and will put pressure on the government to take decisions against Beijing.
Discussion of Western media reporting
Global Times has written that there has been a lot of praise from the western media for the deployment of India’s first indigenously built aircraft carrier on Friday. The CNN report claimed that the aircraft carrier has put India in an elite category of the world’s naval powers. The article about the news agency AFP has been written that it will be a milestone in the government’s efforts to counter China’s increasing military aggression in the region.

Question asked on the intention of western countries
The Global Times has asked whether the West is really happy about India?
