Bangla Hunt Desk: After suspending the submarine deal, the Thai government dealt another blow to China. According to media reports, Thailand is about to close the 'Kra Canal project'. Beijing wants to complete the project at any cost, as China will have a huge advantage in reaching the Indian Ocean if the project is completed.
Earlier, the Thai government suspended a submarine deal with China over a dispute with the Thai people. China has been waiting for a long time to complete this canal project. After the 102 km long canal came into existence, China was trying to complete the project so that it could easily reach its abode in the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean. For now, China has to cover a distance of 1,100 km to reach its destination.
According to media reports, China wants to fulfill many of its aspirations through this project. Their hope was to expand their dominance in the South China Sea, bypassing the State of Malacca, so that no one in the Indo-Pacific region could challenge them again. But when they came, the Thai government poured water on them.
Initially, the Thai government called the project an important one. But now they think they won't have much of an advantage in this project, so they don't want to take this project any further. Earlier, the Thai government suspended a submarine deal with China on the grounds of financial difficulties. The Thai opposition and the Thai people have been pushing for the government to cancel the deal with China. Crowds also took to the streets demanding the cancellation of the agreement. The government then came under pressure to cancel the agreement. And this time China lost another agreement.
