NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s navy will open a third air base in the far-off Andaman and Nicobar islands on Thursday to beef up surveillance of Chinese ships and submarines entering the Indian Ocean through the nearby Malacca Straits, military officials and experts said.

New Delhi has grown concerned over the presence of China’s bigger navy in its neighborhood and the network of commercial ports it is building in an arc stretching from Sri Lanka to Pakistan that India fears could become naval outposts.
==============================================
SE Asia is rapidly becoming a military hot zone with most of China's neighbors showing real alarm at its aggressive behavior in the South China Sea.
