India-Africa Relations: More Emphasis on Maritime Secrity

This Is Africa published on 29 January 2016 a commentary titled "India-Africa Relations: Out to Sea" by Finbarr Toesland.  It argues that India has taken an increased interest in maritime security of the western Indian Ocean, especially following China's announcement of a naval facility being constructed in Djibouti.  India responded by announcing late in  2015 that it will build a naval base on Assumption Island in the Seychelles.
