Beijing’s Defence Ministry confirmed it was considering an offer from the Seychelles government to establish a port to supply its anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden.
India’s former intelligence chief Vikram Sood said he was surprised the Seychelles government, which has traditionally been close to India, had offered naval facilities to China, and said it would heighten Indian concerns over China’s growing influence.
He said India’s announcement of a dramatic increase in military spending was a “retaliatory” move to counter China’s military expansion across their border in Tibet.
