China's bid to encircle India boomerangs

Two recent developments confirm this. The first was the Goa Maritime Conclave, held earlier this month. Naval chiefs of eleven countries, including India, participated in the three-day conference to discuss the establishment of multinational maritime collaboration between nations of the IOR.
