The Heat: China-India border tensions

Posted July 15, 2017

According to the reported article published by two top American nuclear experts for July-August edition India is now developing a missile which can target all of China from its bases in south India.

When asked to comment that the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) Council of Foreign Ministers has strongly condemned India for the tensions in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) and called upon India, United Nations to implement Security Council's resolutions on Kashmir, he said, "We have noted the relevant report".

New Delhi- Rebuffing China's offer, India on Thursday ruled out any third party mediation on Kashmir about which it is ready to talk to Pakistan at a bilateral level as terrorism is at the core of the problem between the two countries.

The road is said to have no economic objective, however, it does provide the Chinese troops an unprecedented advantage in the chicken's neck, a thin strip of land connecting India to its seven of its north-eastern states.

So far India's nuclear arsenal was built keeping in mind the threats from Pakistan; however, now the country is taking serious note regarding too much interference in its affairs and territories by China.

Navaneethakrishnan told reporters later that Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar made a presentation on the military stand-off in the Doklam Plateau adjoining the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan. The territory is also claimed by Bhutan.

Kristensen and Norris also stated in the article that India's Agni-2 ballistic missile - the two-stage, solid-fuel, rail-mobile projectiles with a range of 2,000km - is probably targeted on western, central, and southern China.

Today, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson rejected the Chinese offer and said India's position on addressing all issues, including Kashmir with Pakistan, in a bilateral framework, had not changed. "Bhutan is not a "protectorate" of India", Karat said.

Amid the raging Indo-China border tensions that have been going on for weeks, the Chinese media only seems to be getting more aggressive.

AIADMK leader A Navaneethakrishnan, who represented the party at the meeting, said the response of government was satisfactory.

Even a five-minute meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the Group of 20 meeting in Hamburg last week was interpreted differently by both sides.

Opposition leaders have been criticising the government for the way it has handled China and Kashmir.
