Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

If not, then forget about Maldives or anything around us.

Another strategic objective:

This will reduce the dependency of the land-locked Mongolio on China for access to sea. More revenue for the Xinjiang and Tibet and even Bangladesh as well.
