Tensions between India and China refuse to calm down as the presence of troops is increasing along the Line of Actual Control(LAC). PM Modi after consulting NSA Ajit Doval and CDS Gen Bipin Rawat has not come out with solution to curtail the escalation. On the contrary, both the sides have kept the matter to diplomatic talks between offices.
China has a long history of causing such interference and then back out from the situation. The issue may or may not be related to India at all. China is passing a security law to gain more control over Hong Kong and its decision is facing criticism from the rest of the world. The border in the Laddakh region is now having more troops on both the sides. The Indian Lt. Gen S.L Narsimhan, member of National Security Advisory Board(NSAB) has commented that it is not possible to tell the number of troops on the Chinese side but India is matching up its strength in the region accordingly. India will build its infrastructure as per its requirement.
China has stated that situation with India will be ” Stable and controllable”. This chinese attempt is different this time from previous Doklam stand off as this time Chinese are more aggressive in their approach but both the sides are coordinating for a peaceful solution.
The US President Trump, on the other hand, who is not so good with his words has proposed to mediate the issue as he did during the Pakistan border issue but no side has replied to his call. India and China both are emerging world economic powers and such tension between them may lead to economic fluidity which is not desirable in the present world economic slowdown scenario.
