Rather Bangladesh’s focus could be to deter Myanmar since it was engaged in a feud with Naypyidaw a maritime territorial dispute. In 2008, tensions grew exponentially when Bangladesh dispatched a British-made warship to ward off Myanmar’s petroleum exploration vessel which was accompanied by a naval flotilla. Bangladesh deferred the issue to the United Nations International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) for a resolution. Long before the final ITLOS verdict came in the favor of Dhaka in 2012, the Bangladesh Navy has already started to implement its long-term strategic plans. For instance, the Bangladesh Navy began test firing automated missiles for the first time. Also, it commissioned a number of small ships, notably the decommissioned USCG Cutter Jarvis- a Hamilton class ship which happens to be the largest vessel in Bangladesh Navy. Interestingly it has been named Somudra Joy, meaning ocean victory, indicating Bangladesh’s triumph over Myanmar’s claim on the disputed waters. Apparently, Bangladesh feels more threatened by Myanmar on its Eastern flank rather than drummed up concern regarding India.
