After China said it does not recognize Arunachal Pradesh and the Union Territory of Ladakh which it said India had set up illegally, Ministry of External Affairs today sent out a message loud and clear that China has no locus standi to talk on India’s internal affairs.
Trying to put a smokescreen over its repeated misadventures, China had also blamed India’s infra development as the root cause of escalation of tension between the two nations.
India has been successfully able to expose China on the global stage, adopted a multi-pronged approach to counter China along with Quad member countries while continuing with talks on the ground to uphold the status quo at the border.
Every barb fired by China needs to be neutralized without any delay and that should be India’s standpoint going forward to puncture China’s propaganda machinery.
There should be no let up in augmenting our defence preparedness and development of infrastructure aimed at making our borders and citizens secure. India has seen through China’s game and responses must be crafted on the fly if push come to shove.
