The Chinese ship Yuan Wang 5 has sailed international waters for 15 years, attracting little attention until this month, when it suddenly sparked a diplomatic scuffle. The vessel tracks rocket and spacecraft launches for China’s manned space programme and moon exploration missions. But some have called it a “spy ship”, which has led to the current controversy.

On Tuesday morning, the Sri Lankan government allowed Yuan Wang 5 to dock at its Hambantota port despite India’s objections. An unnamed port official told Reuters it would stock up on fuel, food and other essentials. So what does Yuan Wang 5 do, and how concerned should China’s neighbours be?

Do India been continuously area of interest for chinese
The ship poses a threat to India because most of the nuclear facilities, missile testing ranges and defense manufacturing lies in south India and this ship can collect data.

Also it can tap into important communication networks and steal meta data.

India is in a grouping called Quad which involves multi nations and intelligence is shared between them.
India need not do tit for tat, there are other means.

Srilanka is in a dire situation and so it allowed the ship.

Whether Sri Lanka stops it or not is not the important thing,



Yuanwang 5 can sail and stay in the open sea,



Just 12 nautical miles or more from the Indian coast
