KOTA KINABALU: A regional superpower has encroached into maritime territory by constructing airstrips, jetties and other facilities on three atolls just 155km (84 nautical miles) from Sabah, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Without naming the superpower concerned, the Deputy Prime Minister said the country's motives of building the facilities 3,218km from its mainland were questionable.
