BEIJING: China has commissioned a fully automated, "most advanced" marine science ship which will be deployed in the Indian Ocean.
The vessel, Xiang Yang Hong 01, was commissioned on Saturday in the eastern port city of Qingdao.
The 100-metre long ship with displacement of 4,980 tonnes and a range of 15,000 nautical miles has plentiful remote sensing equipment to explore as deep as 10,000 meters.
The ship will conduct its first task in the Indian Ocean, Qiao Fangli, Communist Party Secretary of the First Institute of Oceanography of the State Oceanic Administration said.
It is fully automated and can be piloted by a lone sailor.
China has Yellow sea, South China sea, East China Sea etc. It has no business in Indian Ocean. After creating tension in South China Sea neighbours, it is trying to create in Indian Ocean.
true....Why Indian Ocean??.......We should sink this ship at the earliest........lol
True! Chinese are sick..and they are dreaming that they can rule the whole world. These technology must have stolen from USA through computer hacking!
According to the US Navy, the "Indian Ocean" doesn''t belong to India. Any country may sail in the Indian Ocean.
No sea or ocean belongs to any country except defined nautical miles from their shores. China is objecting to India and Vietnam doing joint naval exercise. India should also object to China coming to Indian Ocean.
I cannot blame them, Chinese learn in Mandarin and are making huge scientific advancements, and India a third world country will always remain third world until it studies in NATIVE SANSKRIT.........Till then, no matter what, India is sh!tpile with all inventions borrowed from west
You are a MORON!

Chinese ever unstoppable ambition of expansion is a danger not only to India but to the whole world.
