India’s setting up a military base in the Seychelles


Last month (January), India signed a contract with the Seychelles to install a military base on this archipelago. This was in the context of an Indian initiative, Security and Growth for All in the Region — SAGAR.

Narendra Modi’s government intends to deploy its army in the Indian Ocean after China installed two military bases in Djibouti and in Sri Lanka (Hambantota) and is negotiating the installation of a third with the Republic of Maldives.
