China building third aircraft carrier to protect ‘overseas interests’


China is building a third aircraft carrier based on American models as it seeks to fortify its claims in the disputed South China Sea+ and dominate the larger Indian Ocean region to realise its blue water aspirations.

Chinese experts said China is on course to build 5-6 aircraft carriers.
