China prepares to deploy nuclear submarines at Pakistan's Gwadar Port: True face of CPEC?
NEW DELHI, Jan 17 (Agencies): China has already begun work on infrastructure required to station nuclear submarines at the Gwadar Port in southwestern Pakistan.

The stationing of a submarine fleet there would also allow China to keep close tabs on the operations and influence of the Indian Navy. Nuclear submarines are called so only because they are powered by a nuclear reactor onboard. They do not necessarily carry nuclear weapons. Nucle...
