NEW DELHI: China has ramped up its aggressive expansionism both in the South China Sea as well as the Indian Ocean Region, raising concern not only among its smaller neighbors but also India and US as well, Indian media reports said.

Last Sunday, China renamed 80 geographical features in the South China Sea – standard names for 25 islands and reefs and 55 undersea geographic entities in a move that has left the region worried.

The listed islands included Sanzhizai, an islet north of Yongxing Island in Sansha city, South China’s Hainan Province.

The Coronavirus pandemic has not deterred China from pursuing its longer term strategic goals in the region, said the reports.

This comes after Chinese ships rammed and sank a Vietnamese ship three days after Vietnam protested to the UN against China’s sovereignty claims in the South China Sea.
