While everyone’s anxiously watching and analysing the events unravelling in the South China Sea, there’s another resource conflict involving China that also deserves attention. In the Himalayas, China and India are competing for valuable hydropower and water resources on the Yarlung Tsangpo–Brahmaputra River. The dispute offers some important lessons for regional cooperation (on more than … Continue reading

United States succeeds in pitting India against China

Some people regard the territorial disputes between India and China as a major issue to exploit in pitting India against China.

The Narendra Modi government may not only strengthen ITBP deployment and infrastructure along the India–China border, but also promote civilian settlements in border areas.

Seven key messages from India to China

The most charitable thing that can be said about Indian UPA government’s incoherent response to the Chinese incursion into Ladakh’s Debsang Valley is this: maybe, the government has a brilliant plan that we as yet don’t know anything about. On past performance, I wouldn’t bet on this. And surely, the statements of Indian External Affairs … Continue reading
