    Coco Islands are a pair of strategically important islands located in the eastern Indian Ocean, politically administered by Burma under Yangon Division. They are supposedly leased to the People's Republic of China since 1994, according to various amateur sources. Both the government of Burma and the People's Republic of China do not comment on such manner, while many members of the Burmese military categorically deny any agreement at all.

    Geographically, they are a part of the Andaman Islands archipelago and separated from the North Andaman Island (India) by the 20 kilometres (12 mi) wide Coco Channel. The Bay of Bengal lies to the west and the Andaman Sea to the east of the islands. The Burmese mainland is 300 kilometres (190 mi) to the north.

    The Coco Islands consist of the main Great Coco Island and the smaller Little Coco Island, separated by the Alexandra Channel. Table Island, a third small island located near the Great Coco Island, previously housed a lighthouse but is presently uninhabited.
