New Delhi: There is tension in India's Ladakh border as a result of a clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in the first week of last month. Recent satellite images have revealed that China is rapidly strengthening its naval base in Pakistan's Gwadar port.

Satellite images show that China is building new structures in Pakistan's Gwadar port, and China is further developing the area to use it to strengthen its navy.

According to Indian defense experts, China is engaged in modernizing the Gwadar port and rapidly developing its surrounding areas.

The standoff is the most serious since India and China, who fought a brief war in 1962, were locked in a similar faceoff in Doklam, in the eastern Himalayas, that lasted nearly three months in 2017.
