Amid China's growing presence in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), India has operationalized a maritime support base in Oman's Duqm Port and is reportedly considering an air support facility in the north Agalega Islands of Mauritius. These strategic moves aim to boost maritime domain awareness and coastal security for ally nations in the IOR while countering the increasing number of Chinese vessels in the region.
