INDIA NEWS – Thailand, once a close friend of China, has started making distances from it. Apart from India, the US and Australia have shown interest in preparing Thailand’s Kra Canal Project (Kra Canal Project). Earlier this contract was to be given to China. The project will be shared by whom it is not yet decided. However, at the moment Chinese companies seem to be exiting this strategic project. Ten days ago, the government of Thailand canceled the deal for 2 submarines from China.
What is the whole matter and why is India taking interest
In the Bay of Bengal, China was trying to build a canal for Thailand. If this canal had been built by China, it could have reached the Indian Ocean very easily. That is, this project would have become a problem for maritime border security in terms of India. Apart from India, China would have direct access to Cambodia and Myanmar.
After the aggressive attitude of China in the South China Sea, all countries are avoiding it.
Due to pressure from India and the US, the government of Thailand canceled this canal project in the Bay of Bengal with China. The statement issued by the Government of Thailand said that this decision has been taken in view of the interests of small neighboring countries. It says that Myanmar and Cambodia share their borders with China.
The canal will be 120 km long
The Government of Thailand feels that China can influence the interests of these two through the canal. The Government of Thailand has announced that it will now complete the project itself. This canal will be 120 kilometers long. After this decision of Thailand, it seems clear that after the extreme attitude of China in the South China Sea, all the countries are avoiding it.
