India is still arguing!
The "war of words" has escalated. From Saturday to Sunday, the accusations of bilateral relations between China and India have become increasingly fierce. Some accusations even reached ridiculous levels, causing the media to watch. Modi, Prime Minister of India, said in his regular radio programme 28 days ago. "Those who have cast evil eyes on the territory of Ladakh in India have been properly responded" and are widely regarded as "showing strength" to China. A number of India media 28 reported in detail the latest deployment of Indian army in the border area, and analyzed the comparison of military strength between China and India. "The PLA has all that India army lacks, and more." the website of "FireWire" magazine issued a warning to the India government 28 days: do not upgrade the border conflict with China.
India New Delhi television (NDTV) 28 Daily reported that the conflict between India and the Chinese army in Ladakh resulted in the death of at least 20 India soldiers and was attacked by the opposition Congress party. In order to counter the criticism of the opposition party, the ruling India people's party chairman Nada 27 proposed 10 questions to the Congress Party chairman Sonia Gandhi, including the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation's acceptance of China's donation before and after 2005. During this period, India's trade deficit with China rose from $1 billion 100 million to $36 billion 200 million. Is there a "swap condition" between them? NDTV said that for the accusation of the people's party, the spokesman of the Congress party also struck back on 10 questions on 27, and questioned the relationship between the people's party and China.
In response to the Sino Indian border dispute, Modi issued a "tough" stance on the 28 day. "The India Stan times" said that Modi said on the radio program "spiritual dialogue" on the same day: "in Ladakh, those who challenge us have received the appropriate counterattack. Our warriors paid great sacrifices, but they did not let their opponents get the upper hand. " Modi also stressed that the world has seen India's commitment to the protection of borders and sovereignty. According to the India times, Modi also vigorously promoted the use of India's own products in his speech, calling it a way to expand the country and serve the country. He mentioned a woman from Assam who said she had decided to buy local products only after seeing what happened in Eastern Ladakh. "I received these messages from all corners of the country." Modi said that India's goal is to become self reliant. Its tradition is trust and friendship. "We will continue to abide by these principles."
According to "India Stan times" 28 reported that after the Sino Indian border forces clashed in the valley of the calvan Valley, the India army deployed in the eastern part of Ladakh. Surface to air missile defense system These air defense weapons can be used to combat targets such as fighters, helicopters and UAVs. The report quoted Jas Val, former commander of the northern army of India, as saying: "when we can not predict the final state of the situation, military prudence means that we should prepare for the worst." Another India official said the India air force has now raised its alert level, and the frontier base has been ordered to be on top alert.
Despite the frequent deployment of military forces to the border area in India, there is still a big gap between India and China in terms of military strength. "How does India fight against China", the India Economic Times said on the 28 day that although India's defense expenditure accounted for 8.8% of the total government expenditure (8.8%), it had always surpassed China (5.4%), but because China's economy was much larger, China's defense spending actually dwarfed India. The Stockholm Institute of international peace estimates that China's defense spending in 2019 was 261 billion US dollars, and that in India was about US $71 billion. China spends about 182 US dollars on defense every year. India's per capita defense expenditure is less than China's 1/3, 52 dollars per person. In addition, India and the Chinese army still face strategic upgrading and weapons gaps.
The 28 day issue of the "fire" magazine website said that the Modi administration had not realized that once the situation escalated, it would be controlled by a more powerful military side, and it would be the PLA in the Sino Indian border conflict. "A persistent stalemate may be beneficial to China's military and strategic superiority." The article says that the India army leadership has been obsessed with the illusion of fighting the "two line war". "Ironically, India's military leaders have not yet realized the fact that the PLA will fight when necessary, and will not spend too much energy". At the end of the paper, it is suggested that, because of the strong position of China in the negotiations, the Modi administration should consider the restoration of the status quo of Ladakh and maintain neutrality in this century's geopolitical struggle between China and the United States.
In addition to India's two parties' attack on this matter, even India media has been labeled as "anti state" because they interviewed the Chinese ambassador. India The Print website, 27, said The India newspaper trust (PTI) was accused of "false information and propaganda tools" because it interviewed the Chinese ambassador to India and publicize the position of the Chinese side. According to the website of the Chinese Embassy in India, Chinese ambassador Sun Weidong received an interview with PTI on the China and India vallege Valley incident on 25 July, indicating that Chinese and Indian border guards had serious physical clashes in the valley of the western border of the valley of calvan, causing casualties. This is what China does not want to see. The incident was completely launched by the Indian side, and the responsibility was not in the Chinese side. The India Christian newspaper said that the largest subscriber of PTI, the public broadcaster of the India government, threatened to cancel its subscription to its news service on the 27 day, claiming that PTI's recent "anti state" report had "damaged the interests of the state" and undermined India's "territorial integrity".
