Monday’s Asahi led with a report on the recent purchase of submarines from China by Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Thailand, noting that China plans to provide long-term support for their operations, possibly with the goal of obtaining maritime geographical information in the region. Since China is apparently interested in expanding its influence in the Indian Ocean, the submarine exports may also be intended to secure port facilities where Chinese warships can stop for rest and refueling.
