Tension is running between India and China on the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Meanwhile, pictures of Chinese naval maneuvers in the South China Sea have also revealed. The Global Times wrote with photographs of the maneuvers going on since July 1 that China’s southern, northern and eastern theater commands have shown their naval skills in the South China Sea, the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea.
According to the Global Times, 054A frigates and 052D guided missiles destroyers used well in this exercise. Amidst the ongoing tension with India, these pictures coming from China are said to undertake to show their power, but defense experts are considering this as a model of China’s expansionist thinking.
According to experts, China is not only looking at Galvan, but also on the islands of South China Sea.
Actually, there are about 250 islands in the South China Sea. China wants to capture all these. Nearly a third of the world’s trade is about three trillion dollars by this sea route. China intends to keep an eye on every ship passing through these islands and stop them. Defense expert SP Sinha told Aaj Tak that China will have to be stopped strictly. If China is not stopped now, once the situation becomes normal from Corona, it will occupy all these islands.
Defense experts believe that after trying expansionism on the ground, China is pursuing the same attitude in the sea. China has been claiming the South China Sea. He had to face the issue in the international court too.
Japan and Vietnam have been opposing China’s presence in the South China Sea. Staying free from South China Sea is also important for bilateral trade between Japan and Australia.
