Who is building a base where?

Long time readers will know I find this good news.
India is to open its first overseas military base this year in the impoverished central Asian country of Tajikistan - a testament to its emerging status on the world stage.

The Indian air force will station up to two squadrons of MiG-29s at the refurbished former Soviet airbase of Farkhor more than 60 miles from the Tajik capital of Dushanbe, Jane's Defence Weekly said, citing defence officials.
As others have said, each year India is coming more and more into her rightful place; a strong player in the Anglosphere. Yes, it is a good thing. I feel at peace. Time to think about a good Hoegaarden.

Hat tip Captain's Quarters.
