In this video we’ll have a look on how India has the capability to cripple China economy in case of a conflict with this country. As you may already know, India owns the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The islands itself are preaty insignificat, but their geographic position is of paramount strategic importance. You see, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands practically represent the gate to the Malacca strait through where more that 80% percent of China maritime trade has to pass.
By closing the access to the ships going to and coming from China, India will slow down dramatically the Chinese economy.

Why China should not upset India !?
More than two thirds of China maritime trade and 80% of imported oil pass through Malacca strait. The bad news for China is that India practically controls the entrance to the Strait of Malacca, because it controls the Andaman and Nicobar islands. In case of a conflict with China, India will most probably ally with the US and would block any type of Chinese maritime trade through this islands, crippling this way the second economy of the world. The only option for China to feed its immense industry would be to increase its oil imports from the big angry neighbor, Russia.
