India should initiate fresh dialogue with China after Sikkim standoff, says CPI(M)

India-China tensions on the rise

Situation in Kashmir has attracted attention of international community: China

India is developing long-range land-and sea-based missiles as part of the country's nuclear arsenal mordernisation, but with a focus on China, claimed two USA nuclear experts in a recently published article for a digital journal.

People's Daily has published this article-"If this can be tolerated, what cannot be tolerated?", the editorial refers to India's alleged attempts to "erode" Chinese territory, recounts Indian Army provocation and warns of retaliation.

"We are ready to talk Kashmir with Pakistan, but no third party mediation", Baglay said.

The Global Times in Beijing carried a story stating that India will suffer worse losses than in 1962 if it continues to push at the Bhutan-China border.

The Centre briefed a few political parties here on Friday about the situation along the Chinese borders and the conditions in Jammu and Kashmir after the terrorist attack on Amarnath pilgrims.


Responding to Jaishankar's comments, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said said that the trespass by Indian troops in Doka La was different from "frictions is in the undefined sections of the boundary" between India and China.

He also strongly rejected allegations by Pakistan that India was using chemical weapons in Kashmir, saying India is against the use of chemical weapon anywhere by anyone in any situation.

India has said it had warned China that construction of the road near their common border would have serious security implications. Bhutan co-operates closely with India in determining its foreign policy, and the Indian Army is involved in the training of its armed forces. After the meeting, Sitaram Yechury of the CPI (M) said the government assured them that "they'll tackle the situation through dialogue".

"The parties also recognised the unique nature of very close and longstanding India-Bhutan relationship", Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said after the meeting.

India's nuclear strategy is fast shifting to China, which they called "Decoupling" strategy aimed at both the northern neighbours. Sources said the meeting was part of the government's initiative to get the Opposition on board and evolve a broad consensus on these critical issues. "Bhutan would prefer maintaining friendly and equidistant ties with both India and China", P. Stobdan, a former Indian ambassador and senior fellow at the New Delhi-based Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, told Sputnik.
