China's presence creating anxiety in Indian Ocean Region: US

publicly questioned the intent of China's OBOR (One Belt One Road) initiative in the maritime domain.
Admiral Scott Swift, US Pacific Fleet commander, who met civilian and military leadership of India, said Chinese ships were doing an OBOR tour - "right now there are more questions than answers. China has increased its presence in the Indian Ocean." He said his discussions with Indian officials covered what India and US could do to provide stability in the region. Chinese actions, he said, were adding to a sense of "anxiety" in the region. Uncertainty over the consequences and a lack of clarity about the goals of China's OBOR programme is being raised "in every country I visit," he said.
