Rising Chinese N-subs a concern for India

India's navy chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta has taken note of China's big build-up of submarines with nuclear weapons. In the past, China has shown that it's willing to use military might to protect its energy interests. For instance, when it fought with Vietnam and Philippines over the Spratly islands. With both New Delhi and Beijing determined to fight for strategic space in Indian Ocean region, the two navies are likely to compete much more fiercely on the high seas.

IMO: Such facts will have to be taken into account with regards to 123, and also the strange relationship, both trading and financial, USA has with China.
