msid 105820694,imgsize

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval on Thursday underscored the pivotal role of the Colombo Security Conclave (CSC) in ensuring the security and stability of the Indian Ocean Region amid growing ambitions of an extra-regional power. Addressing the sixth NSA-level meeting held in Mauritius, Doval stressed the need for continued engagement under various pillars of cooperation to address shared challenges effectively.

Against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean’s strategic importance, member nations India, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka, along with observer countries Seychelles and Bangladesh, convened to deliberate on crucial matters of regional security, including terrorism, besides stability amid China’s growing ambitions in the region.

A CSC roadmap for 2024 was also agreed at the Mauritius meeting that was not participated by Maldives following creation of a new government.

The latest meeting follows the 7th Deputy NSA-level gathering hosted by the Maldives on July 12 where the member states – India, Maldives, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka – met virtually, with Bangladesh and Seychelles participating as Observers.
