This is the toughest statement from India about China so far, in which the Indian Army has said that China is not ready to vacate the Indian territories. On the other hand, China has also made a similar statement and said that India is adamant on its unreasonable demands.
New Delhi: Today first of all we will tell you a worrying news. That is, now a dangerous turn has come in the relations between India and China. On Sunday, the 13th round of meeting was held on the ongoing border dispute between the two countries and from the statement issued by the Indian Army after this meeting, it seems that India no longer has faith in China.
India’s toughest statement
This is the toughest statement from India about China so far, in which the Indian Army has said that China is not ready to vacate the Indian territories. On the other hand, China has also made a similar statement and said that India is adamant on its unreasonable demands. Today, the Chinese state media has threatened India that if it starts the war then India’s defeat is certain and China will not accept any international pressure in this matter. So today we will give you complete information about this controversy.
On Sunday, the 13th round of commander level talks were held between India and China to resolve the border dispute in Eastern Ladakh, which was inconclusive. But this is not the news. The news is that for the first time both the countries issued separate statements after the meeting. Earlier, after every conversation, both the countries used to issue the same statement jointly. That is, the language and words of the press statement after the conversation were in the official statement of India, the same were in the official statement of China. For example, when the 12th round of talks between the two countries was held on August 2 this year, both the countries jointly issued the same statement.
Policy shift from both countries
But this time it didn’t happen. From the copy of the press statement issued after all the talks between India and China, you will understand why we are calling this the biggest policy shift ever from India and China. It is important to know what India has said about the 13th round of talks.
On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of India, it has been said that China has refused to accept the constructive proposal presented by it to resolve the border dispute in this meeting. Apart from this, China itself could not present any proposal in this direction, due to which there was no agreement between the two countries on the areas where there is a dispute about LAC. At present, there is a dispute between the two countries on the LAC in eastern Ladakh over Hot Springs, Depsang Bulge and Charding Nullah Junction.
India has also said for the first time that the current situation on the LAC is due to China’s change of status quo and violation of bilateral agreements, so it was necessary that China take appropriate steps in this matter. However, it is also written in it that both the sides have agreed to continue the talks.
Earlier, when there used to be commander level talks between the two countries, both the countries used to say that all was well, they trust each other and positive talks are taking place. The first point of the news is that now both India and China have made the biggest shift in their policy towards each other.
Will LAC convert to LoC?
The second big point of this news is that after this there is a fear that our borders with China may also change to Line of Control instead of Line of Actual Control. At present, the border we share with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir is called LoC and the border with China is called LAC. The difference between LoC and LAC is that the boundary between India and Pakistan is fixed in the LoC.
As far as the country has control, both the countries have deployed their armies from there. That is, the armies of both the countries are standing here with their eyes in their eyes, which is also called Soldier to Soldier Marking. After the 1948 war between India and Pakistan, this limit was set, under which both the countries could not give up even an inch of their land.
But the situation is different on LAC. This is such a real border, about which there is no consensus between the two countries and both have different claims. For this reason, there is no Soldier to Soldier marking on the LAC. Instead, a buffer zone of 50 to 100 km is created, where the army is not deployed. That is, the armies of both the countries here do not stand with their eyes in their eyes. Armies move closer to each other only in areas where there is dispute.
India will face this challenge
Now if the LAC turns into LoC, then this buffer zone of 50 to 100 km will end and the armies of both the countries will stand face to face. It will happen that the kind of infrastructure that India has built on the LoC with Pakistan, it will have to be built on the LAC with China too. It will require more roads, highways, bunkers, accommodation for soldiers, more logistics and weapons.
The thing to think about is that the LoC is only about 700 kilometers long, while the length of the LAC is about three and a half thousand kilometers. That is, if LAC turns into LoC, then it will be a big challenge. Apart from this, the way ceasefire violations continue on the LoC every day, there will be a similar violent conflict with China. In such a situation, India will have to fight on two fronts. There will be Pakistan on one side and China on the other.
The third point of this news is that after the violent clashes in Galwan Valley last year, the second winter is about to come and the deployment of troops in winter can be very challenging. According to the apprehension, if the LAC turns into LoC, then even in winter, India will have to deploy more troops in front of the Chinese army and this will keep the fear of violent confrontation.
Another thing is that the deployment of the army in the high mountainous areas is not an easy task. For example, the daily cost of deployment of the Indian Army in Siachen is Rs 6 crore and in the coming times, if the deployment of troops increases in these areas, then this expenditure will increase even more.
Malabar exercise very important
The fourth point is that the second phase of the Malabar exercise is starting from tomorrow. The Malabar area falls in the Indian maritime border near the state of Kerala, where the armies of the QUAD countries will exercise from tomorrow. QUAD is an organization of four countries India, Japan, Australia and America, which also had a meeting in the US White House in the past. India may have got some confidence in this meeting, after which the policy regarding China has been changed. QUAD is also being seen as the biggest siege against China in the Indo-Pacific region, so it is also very important to start the Malabar exercise from tomorrow.
On this whole issue, China’s official newspaper Global Times has threatened India and said that India will no longer get the border as it wants and if it fights the war, it will surely be defeated. That is, now China has also started giving giddiness.
Today, on this issue, the spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of China has also said in an interview that it will not accept the demands of India. China will not accept the proposal presented by the Indian Army in the commander-level talks. He is saying this openly now.
