The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Nation -

New Delhi: Presently, seven Chi­nese Navy war­ships are op­er­at­ing in and around the In­dian Ocean Re­gion, in­clud­ing an over 27,000 tonnes am­phibi­ous ves­sel, which have been tracked by the In­dian Navy us­ing its P-8I anti-sub­ma­rine war­fare spy planes and other sur­veil­lance assets.

In pic­tures clicked by the P-8I air­craft, Chi­nese land­ing plat­form dock xian-32 can be seen pass­ing through the south­ern In­dian Ocean Re­gion ear­lier this month. The other Chi­nese war­ships in­clude three each ves­sels of its counter-piracy es­cort task force 32 and counter-piracy es­cort task force 33. Look­ing at the re­quire­ments, the de­ploy­ment seems to be more than what is needed.
