The Foreign Secretary further added that they also provide targets for terrorists, supported and encouraged by the resources of governments. 

Using the oceans to move and infiltrate, they threaten offshore and coastal assets according to Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla.

Such terrorists tend to combine with transnational criminals. These alliances escalate instability and violence levels exponentially.

Another set of challenges arises from geopolitical volatilities. A lack of commitment to settled international law has led to increased militarization of the region. 

Militarization always adds to complexities added Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla.

The Indian Ocean Region, it is quite obvious, will face an increasingly complicated, rapidly evolving, and more demanding security situation, with an ever-increasing battery of threats and uncertainties added Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla.
