Assert Indian Sovereignty: Quit the Quad

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

Assert Indian Sovereignty: Quit the Quad

The American Seventh Fleet  warship’s  intrusion into India’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) waters off the coast of Lakshadweep is a gratuitous challenge to India’s sovereignty. 

The statement of the Seventh Fleet makes it clear that this operation was for “challenging India’s excessive maritime claims”.
