Did China Just Invade India?Salem-News.com
According to news reports in India Chinese troops have set up checkpoints 19 KM inside Indian borders with a banner that reads “You are in Chinese Territory”.
(WASHINGTON DC IntelliHub) - Hostility is rising between India and China over their disputed Himalayan border and shared water resources. All of this comes just before Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is scheduled to visit New Delhi next month.
“China at this moment does not have anything to gain from asserting itself against India. If anything, as former Indian foreign minister Jaswant Singh puts it, China seems to pivot to Russia and India, even while it seems to adopt a more assertive attitude towards Japan and Southeast Asia,” Lei says.
Ashley Tellis, senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said that “This one dramatically changes the status quo as the Chinese appear to have physically occupied new territory under Indian control,” he says, pointing out the Chinese picked an area where India has been attempting to ramp up defences.
