NEW DELHI: After 15 rounds of dialogue at the level of military commanders, and a 16th round in the offing, India appears no closer to getting the Chinese out of Patrolling Point 14 which they occupied in the wake of the Galway clashes.
In this chat on The Gist, Jayadeva Ranade of the Centre for China Analysis & Strategy, underscores a point he has been making for some time, that China has no intention of withdrawing. Rather, the speed at which new infra in Tibet is coming up, suggests China may harbour ill intentions towards India going forward.
Ranade also gives his take on an audio recording which purportedly has Communist Party members giving instructions on preparing for mobilisation. Does this suggest China is ready to risk confrontation with the US to strike at Taiwan? Or is the target elsewhere, perhaps India?
Tune in for more in this conversation with Jayadeva Ranade.
