India-China diplomacy nowhere close

The dispute between India and China over its territories is not going to be solved in near future. This is what came out when Spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry, Liu Weimin stated to media while answering a question on Special Representatives talks.

Liu Weimin stated that the resolution cannot be achieved overnight and that it will take time. He also refused to speak on when the crucial Special Representative talks on boundary dispute between India and China would take place. However he stated that both the countries are in touch and that the dates and further details would be declared in the near future.

It is to be mentioned that India considers that around 4000 Kms of its borders with China is disputable while China only recognizes the 2000 Kms of border along Arunachal Pradesh as disputable. China claims Arunachal Pradesh as southern Tibet and has allowed citizens of this north eastern state in India to visit China without visa in the past.

The border dispute between China and India has been long debated and pending and has never reached anywhere close to a solution. Instead further debates and actions by the Chinese Government such as stapled visa to citizens of J&K or free entry to citizens of Arunachal Pradesh has only irked the Indian Government further. In addition, China is being accused of providing covert support and fuel militancy in North Eastern states in order to destabilizing the region. In fact the supreme commander of the most wanted militant leader of India, Paresh Baruah of United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) is claimed to be residing in China along with this family with direct support from the Chinese Government.

On the other hand, the Indian Army looks concerned about the Chinese military getting stronger in numbers as well as in infrastructure. As such the Indian Army has already initiated a mass drive to hire and increase its own strength by around 90,000 to 1, 00, 000 additional soldiers understood to be deployed mostly along the Indian China border. Indian Air Force has also set up its tempo against possible threat from China and has already done large scale acquisition of land recently in strategic locations of Assam for Indian Air Force Bases, at Tezpur, Chabua and Jorhat.

    WRONG ! INDIA-CHINA BORDER DISPUT IS ALREADY SOLVED. IN 1993 AGREEMENT , BOTH INDIA AND CHINA DECIDED TO MAINTAIN LINE OF ACTUAL CONTROL AS A LINE OF TRANQUILITY AND PEACE. CONVERSION OF THIS LINE INTO INTERNATIONAL BORDER IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME. ALREADY THERE IS NO DISPUT; ONLY NON-ANTAGONISTIC CONTRADICTION. GOS OF TIME WILL SOLVE THIS CONTRADICTION.
    LONG LIVE THE STATUS AGREEMENT BETWEEN INDIA AND CHINA.

    First of all India should de-recognize Tibet as an autonomous part of China. Why India should make concessions to Chinese, it is because of this China is taking advantage coupled with weak response militarily to the belligerent attitude of the Chinese.

      In 1962, some unwanted incidents occurred in India-china border, which could have been avoided by proper diplomatic intelligence. However, in 1965, when Indian army reached Lahore, an important city of Pakistan, India-china border remained peaceful. In 1971, when Indian army reached Dhaka, the then capital of East Pakistan, India-china border remained peaceful. In 1993 India-china border agreement is signed. The agreement is such that both sides are supposed to continue with their “claim”, but nobody will take any “action” and status quo will be maintained. So, presently India-china border is peaceful calm and quiet. One should be realistic before fabrication of fictions and unrealistic story of “probable attack from north” or story of “Sino – pak axis”.

    In 1993 India-china border agreement is signed which has solved many problems permanently. Both Arunachal Pradesh and aksai chin are under subjective partition between India and china. Regarding aksai chin, subjective partition signifies that India will claim but china will rule. Regarding Arunachal Pradesh subjective partition means china will claim and India rule. So, Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India as far as governance is concerned. However the agreement allows china to claim arunachal, which India is not bound to accept as per the same agreement. So both arunachal and aksai chin problems are solved by conversion of the dispute into a non-antagonistic contradiction. The Simla pact 1972 has solved the POK problem also. The Simla pact has converted the line of control in the Kashmir sector into a permanent line. So POK is in the Pakistan side of line of control and J & K is in Indian side. Tibet was and is province of china. British made an illegal agreement with TIBET by-passing china’s central govt. So, agreement with a province of a country created Tibet question, which is fully solved after British left India. Dalia lama and his associated are food-spoiler of china; they are allowed to spoil food of India by Nehru govt. However they are not allowed to spoil country’s foreign policy.
