Between India and China, even glacial change is progress

India signalled to visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang that the border issue is of "core interest", and withheld boilerplate acknowledge of India's commitment to the 'one China' principle. These are not without significance. #Manmohan Singh #Ch-India #Li Keqiang #OnTheContrary #Ladakh incursion

Not just niceties, China and India need to focus on thorny issues

India's discourse with China has traditionally been trapped in the Mao-ist maze that defines how "friends" ought to conduct themselves. But Chinese statecraft has evolved, and India too must up its diplomatic game. #China #Manmohan Singh #diplomacy #Ch-India #Kevin Rudd #Li Keqiang

China's push for border deal: Why India must 'trust but verify'

Indian suspicions about Chinese grand strategems should not be allowed to impede any progress in the Sino-Indian border talks. But it is important to mark the boundary before committing to a freeze on troop and infrastructure build-up. #diplomacy #Ch-India #Border dispute #Ladakh incursion

India, China stand-off in Ladakh ends but at what cost to India?

India and China have backed off from their eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation in the Himalayas. But there is reason to believe that India may have paid a high price by giving China the right to determine what happens on our side of the fence. #China #diplomacy #Ch-India #Ladakh incursion #Depsang Valley

'Coercive diplomacy' is the key to beat China's Ladakh ingress

There is diplomatic space for India to exert itself against the Chinese incursion without resorting to military adventurism. But to exert the levers of coercive diplomacy, you need to know that you have a spine in the first place. #diplomacy #Ch-India #Ladakh incursion #Depsang Valley

China's Ladakh incursion is war minus the shooting

To the extent that Chinese troops are still in notionally Indian territory and are looking to extract a price for their withdrawal, China is looking to expand its sovereignty map - without firing a single shot. #World #India #China #WhyNow #Ch-India #Ladakh #Border dispute #Ladakh incursion #Depsang Valley #Line of Actual Control

Living in denial is not how India should deal with China's incursion

Perhaps this incursion was intended by the new Chinese leadership to signal Chinese frustration at the lack of progress in the talks on the border dispute despite years of negotiations. If that is so, it reflects raw power, not sagacity. #Ch-India #Border dispute #Ladakh incursion

Ladakh incursion: Why China sees India as a pushover

So long as India insists on pussyfooting its way around Chinese sensibilities, even in the face of grave provocations, India will continue be seen as a pushover. #WhyNow #Ch-India #Border dispute #Ladakh incursion
