The US, with India in border confrontation with China
Chinese aggression is not always only rhetoric
According to the information, India’s top military officers are continually monitoring the situation.
At the same time, the US has said that the aggressive behavior of Chinese soldiers is a reminder of the danger presented by China.
In this regard, Alice Wells, the outgoing head of the Bureau of South and Central Asia in the US State Department, said that we felt tension on the border was a warning that Chinese aggression was not always just rhetoric.
He said, whether it is the case of the South China Sea or its border with India, we see provocative and disturbing behavior from China. This shows how China wants to use its growing power.
China claims the South China Sea but has a dispute with its neighboring countries.
Recently, there were reports of China increasing its military activities in the South China Sea, after which the US also sent its ships to the region.
Wales also discussed China’s aggression in the South China Sea. He said that China claims the entire South Sea, while it has disputes with Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippine, Brunei, and Taiwan.
Beijing has built military bases on several islands in the South China Sea. Wales said the area is mineral-rich and is also an essential route for global trade.
Like-minded countries are gathering against China.
Wales said that you could see that like-minded countries are gathering against China’s policy, whether through ASEAN, the gathering of its member countries, or through other diplomatic groups.
He said that America, Japan, India, Australia, and other countries of the world are trying to implement the economic principles made after the Second World War, which talks about free and open trade for every nation.
Wales said that America wants a global system in which every country benefits, not a system in which China dominates.
I think this example of a border dispute is a reminder of the danger posed by China.
Chinese troops increase their presence around Pangong Lake.
Sources have informed that Chinese troops have significantly increased their presence in the areas around Pangong Lake for the past few days and have even brought additional boats to the lake.
In such a situation, the two sides have deployed more troops to places like Demchauk and Daulat Beg Oldi.
Emphasize that the area around Galvan has been the subject of a dispute between the two sides for the last six decades.
Sources said that the Chinese side had installed a large number of tents in the Galvan Valley region. After this, India has also sent additional troops to guard the area.
China objected to road construction.
The Chinese side objected to the construction of an essential road from the Indian side around the Galvan River. Sources said that after this, the development of this road has currently been stopped.
Explain that on May 5, about 250 Indian and Chinese soldiers clashed with iron rods and batons.
Many soldiers on both sides were injured in this. Neither the army nor the foreign ministry has commented on the growing tension between the two armies.
