News: Recently, satellite images have suggested that China may be constructing an airstrip on Triton Island, which could be used for drones or small aircraft.

About Triton Island:
• Triton Island is a small island in the South China Sea that is part of the Paracel Islands, a group of disputed islands that are claimed by China, Vietnam, and Taiwan.
• The island has been under China’s control since 1974, when it seized it from South Vietnam in a naval battle. China has built a small harbour and a helipad on the island, as well as some buildings and a flagpole with a star and a hammer and sickle representing the ruling Communist Party.

Which islands form a part of Paracel group of Islands?
• The Paracel Islands are a group of about 130 small coral islands and reefs in the South China Sea. They are divided into two main groups: the Amphitrite group in the northeast and the Crescent group in the west.
• Woody Island, Rocky Island, Triton Island, Lincoln Island, Tree Island.
• The dispute over the Paracel Islands is part of a larger conflict in the South China Sea, where several countries have overlapping claims and competing interests. The South China Sea is a strategically important waterway and one of the world’s busiest trading routes. It is also rich in natural resources, such as fish, oil, and gas.
