🇨🇳🇮🇳 #CHINA's MARITIME NOOSE

China’s increased naval presence in the Indian subcontinental region, strategic investments in new 'bases' brings with it grave economic and military implications, #India must wake up and take note as #Pakistan seems like the least of its worries
The ports also come with the high risk of becoming debt traps for the host nations involved due to the massive billion dollar investments and super long lease agreements being put forth by #China as they control trade routes, container ports and petroleum transit in the region
🇱🇰 #Hambantota port in #SriLanka is feared to become a Chinese Naval facility due to its sheer size, capacity and 99 year lease agreement
