To respond to Pakistan’s terrorism designs, India will also have to deal with China

As India considers a range of policy options for acting against Pakistan after the dastardly terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri, it becomes even more important to talk about and discuss the elephant – actually the dragon — in the room: China #ConnectTheDots #CPEC #Foreign policy #Hafiz Saeed #India-China relations #Jaish-e-Mohammad #Lashkar-e-Taiba #Masood Azhar #Narendra Modi #One belt One Road #Terrorism
