Rajya Sabha passed a Bill that would provide an effective legal instrument to combat maritime piracy. The Bill offers stringent punishment for those convicted of such crimes. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said the Bill will help in meeting all the expectations of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which India is a signatory to, for cooperation and repression of piracy on high seas.
- The bill will enhance the country’s global credentials and standing in the comity of nations.
- It will also strengthen our maritime security, including the safety of our maritime trade routes and the well-being of Indian seafarers in international waters.
