Washington: A top US defense expert has said that India is behaving like a matured power in the wake of the Doklam deadlock, while China seems to be behaving like a bogus teen. From June 16, there is a standoff between India and China in the Dokalam region. Dokalam is Bhutan’s land, but China is making a claim on it. This stalemate started when Indian soldiers stopped the People’s Liberation Army from making roads in this area. Since then, the Chinese media and its officials are trying to create a war-like atmosphere by giving provocative statements.
Praising the behavior of India in this entire episode, Professor James R. Holmes of the prestigious Naval War College said, “So far New Delhi has done the right things. Neither has he ran back in the controversy nor has he responded with increasingly speeches like perching. Holmes said, “India is behaving like a matured force, while China seems to be behaving like a bitter teenager.
Holmes said that he was surprised that China wants to keep the border dispute alive with its largest neighboring country. Holmes said, “If China wants to show aggression in the maritime areas, then it should make its ground boundaries so secure that when it does not have to worry about the ground aggression shown towards its neighbors.”
Professor Holmes said, “On the basis of logical analysis of cost and profit, it is not logical to hinder India in the Himalayas.” When he was asked why the US remained silent for so long, then Professor Holmes said that the present administration has so much to do at this time. He said, ‘It is also possible that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his advisers do not want to include the United States in this dispute. If the dispute increases, it is likely that the US will come forward in support of India.
Beijing: China on Friday reprimanded Japan, saying that it came from the “unreasonable” rhetoric over the China-India border dispute, saying rhetoric. If he wants to support India on this issue, in such a situation he also avoids such unrestrained rhetoric. Japan has supported India on the Doklam controversy. Japan’s Ambassador to India Kenji Hiramatsu said that this region is disputed and Japan understands why India is involved in this dispute.
China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying said, “We have come to know that Japan’s Ambassador to India wants to support India in this dispute, and I want to remind them that without understanding this related facts clearly, Do not talk unrestrained rhetoric. ” Hua has ignored the Japanese ambassador Hiramatsu. Hiramatsu has said that Docmal is a disputed area and no country should change its status on the strength of power.
Hua said, “There is no regional dispute in the Donglong region of Dokalam and the boundary has been set and both parties have accepted it. The effort of change in this status by encroachment by the army is being done by India, not by China but by India. ” Significantly, Japan is the first country, which has openly supported India on the Docmal controversy.
Hua Chunying has urged India to withdraw its forces from Dokalm with immediate effect. In this area, there has been a standoff between India and China since June. Hua said that for the dialogue to resolve this crisis, India will have to undo its forces unconditionally. Significantly, Docmal is a disputed area between Bhutan and China. India says that this region belongs to Bhutan and Chinese troops have entered into this area, affecting India’s strategic interests.
