Beijing declares, "This is life," as its spy ship docks in a port in Sri Lanka.

Here's why India is paying close attention: a Chinese espionage ship is currently docked in Sri Lanka.

After Lanka was unable to pay the loan for its construction, Hambantota Port was leased to China.

Beijing had said that it is "senseless to coerce Sri Lanka" by bringing up security issues.

Chinese authorities had requested that the ship's arrival to Hambantota Port be postponed, according to authorities in Sri Lanka.

China had sent a diplomatic note informing Sri Lanka's Foreign Ministry that Yuan Wang 5 would arrive at the port on August 16.

The ship's ability to map ocean floors scared India and will be crucial to the Chinese Navy's anti-submarine campaign.

India was concerned about the ship's potential to perform satellite research in the western Indian Ocean due to security reasons.
