China renames five seabed features in Indian Ocean Region

China's navy has named five seabed features in the Indian Ocean region after Chinese musical instruments, taking the total number of names it has given to undersea topographies in the maritime area to nine. The move is seen as an example of China's "soft power". While China has earlier declared renaming undersea features in other maritime regions, it is the first time that the Chinese navy has made public that it has done so in the Indian Ocean region. The Indian navy will be closely monitoring the PLA navy's latest move.
