Myanmar’s Great Coco Islands, close to India’s strategically located Andaman and Nicobar Islands (A&N), are showing signs of increased military construction, raising concerns within India’s defence establishment.
Located just 55 kilometres north of India’s strategic A&N Islands the recent satellite Imagery shows the completion of construction of a second military hangar alongside the newly lengthened 2,400- metre-long-airstrip suggesting that the Island can be used for conducting maritime surveillance operations.
