In video remarks titled `Implement Consensus and Handle Differences Properly to Bring China-India Relations Back on the Right Track’ posted on the Chinese embassy website, Sun spoke of disruptions in the bilateral relationship and outlined five steps to clarify “some fundamental points”. Here is the video:
Let me tell Sun that in India there is a saying “often people who spit have to lick and swallow it”. This is exactly what the Sun has done on behalf of China. Of course, the Government will just be silent but it does not change the opinion of people. Please note the website above, that has published it first.
Check the link. I did not use the word naive for Americans. An American did.
Sun said China and India need peace rather than confrontation, need to pursue win-win cooperation instead of a zero-sum game, need to build trust, rather than suspicion and relations should move forward rather than backward. Can there by any more hypocritical statement.
Mirror mirror on the wall, Who is the most fearsome of all.
The Chinese army has disengaged from Tibet-Ladakh border and the process will continue from both ends, and de-escalation between Indo-China armies may also start soon. Meanwhile two of USA’s Aircraft Carriers are exercising in South-China Sea. Have you ever wondered what is the issue there? Even more interesting is the reason how it is connected to India?
South China Sea Dispute
China has many maritime neighbours like Japan, Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and many others and not to forget Taiwan which it claims as part of it’s own territory. Every country has right over it’s land and12 nautical miles into the sea from where it’s sea shore, ends. It is more complicated than that and read here for complicated version. Beyond that, the water is common to all for navigation. In 2013 China started to build/expand Spratly Islands and the Parcel Islands in this area called South China sea. Thereby it sought to extend its 12 nautical miles limit to be counted from the islands, rather than it’s sea shore. That is the shortest version of the South China Sea dispute. Needless to add that no country in the region agrees with this interpretation. But first we need to delve into history of India for a while.
Jianli Yang, a former Chinese military official and son of a leader in the Chinese Communist Party, made a sensational claim. As per Yang, ‘More than 100 Chinese troops were killed in the dreadful conflict between Indian and Chinese soldiers, on the night of 15th June. But the Chinese regime is hiding this information from the Chinese people.
Possibility of rebellion in army:
President Xi Jinping is worried that if the information regarding the soldiers, killed in the Galwan Valley, is disclosed, the serving as well as the retired soldiers could revolt. Not only this but also there could be a rebellion within the Communist Party.’
In his article written for the newspaper, Washington Times, Jianli Yang accused that the Chinese regime is not willing to disclose the information regarding the Galwan Valley conflict.
Yang reminded that in the last few days, Zhao Lijian, the spokesman of the Chinese foreign ministry has dodged questions regarding the Chinese casualties, in the Galwan Valley, during various news conferences. Yang made vitriolic criticism saying that China is not willing to openly state the number of casualties in the Galwan Valley conflict. On the other hand, the Indian government honoured its martyrs.
Yang presented the plight of the soldiers saying ‘It is better not to think of the state of the retired Chinese army personnel when China does not care even for the serving soldiers and martyrs from the military. The Chinese regime frequently treats the retired soldiers, who participated in the China-Vietnam or the Korean war, with contempt. These soldiers are protesting for pension, medical facilities and employment, for the last many years against the Chinese regime. But the Chinese government is not willing to take cognisance of their demands.’
