New Delhi rejects China's mediation offer to ease Indo-Pak tensions

India-China tensions on the rise

Researchers say that India's nuclear weapon defense strategies that were primarily focused on Pakistan, now include China too.

It should be noted that Bhutan held 24 rounds of talks on the issue with China so far.

India's foreign affairs ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay while addressing the media at New Delhi said that India is ready to have a dialogue with Pakistan on Kashmir under a bilateral framework.

The People's Daily article paraphrased pieces and editorials run by People's Daily, Xinhua and Global Times to send out a clear message to India to accept China's position on the current stand-off at the Sikkim border, or be prepared to face a repeat of 1962.

Gang said, "China has pointed out many times that the illegal trespass of Indian border troops of the mutually recognised border line is different in nature from the frictions in the undefined sections of the boundary".

There is a stand off between the armies of India and China in the Doklam area in the Sikkim sector, where Indian troops stopped Chinese soldiers from constructing a road on June 16.

In the presence of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Defence and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Home Ministry officials made two presentations on both the issues before the leaders.


On the standoff between the armies of India and China in the Doka La area, the spokesperson said diplomatic channels would continue to be used for a resolution.

On Jammu and Kashmir, government's chief spokesman Frank Noronha said the basic goal of the meeting was to apprise the MPs from different parties of the situation following the attack on Amarnath yatris on July 10.

The writers claimed that India is now developing a missile which can carry nuclear heads to any remote area in China from its bases in South India.

Several Opposition leaders as well as Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi have been criticising the way the Government has handled China and Kashmir issues.

Beijing also snubbed Indian foreign secretary S Jaishankar's remarks that he sees no reason why the two nations couldn't resolve existing differences when they have resolved past differences over the border successfully. Karat said India has been seeking to join the Nuclear Suppliers' Group (NSG) on a priority basis and considers China as the "stumbling block" for this goal.

He said the Congress would fully "cooperate" with the government on issues relating to national security.
