parts of India who encouraged the surge
But obviously, India is not “monolithic.”

8 月 7-Japanese talks kicked off, the Indian mainstream media coverage of a relatively objective process of Sino-Indian border, but there are exceptions. Such as “The Times of India” on August 8 sudden hype “Google Maps shame India”: The original Google map with a dotted line marked “Arunachal Pradesh” is “undetermined borders.” “The Times of India,” claimed that Google Maps is in Chinese, not Hindi, “this approach is simply a disguised identity ‘Arunachal Pradesh’ was placed under the jurisdiction of China.”
Zhao Gancheng that India “at every turn to war to solve the border issue statements and even more damage than the surge of operations, the spread of Indian nationalism, laissez-faire do nothing to solve the problem.”
need more diplomats “white head”
“Sino-Indian border issues remain unsettled and the fundamental crux of India’s stubbornly ‘ McMahon Line ‘, which is China will never accept. “Zhao Gancheng pointed out that India was established in 1987″ Arunachal Pradesh “in an attempt to create in the country,” done deal “the media image, but also limits the Government of India policy options. Now, as long as India a claim of “Arunachal Pradesh” illegal, a claim was negotiated, will lead the Indian media and public opinion of an uproar and accusations.
course, India does not lack advocates peaceful negotiated settlement of the sound. Indian defense officials Kumaxinge Audit August 7, the author pointed out that “very difficult negotiations with China, and now we have to do is to support our negotiators, be patient.” However, he admitted, this was mainly due to India’s current “can not decipher the Chinese grand strategy, India, China experts and scholars on the military failure of the negotiations is not an alternative.”
Zhao Gancheng also pointed out that Sino-Indian border issue is not the lack of progress in the past 30 years has achieved three major jumps. In 1981, when he was appointed Foreign Minister Huang Hua’s visit to India, opened the road to peace negotiations; 1988, Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s visit to China, set up a “Joint Working Group talks border issues” can be regarded as another big jump, ” increasing emphasis on high-level description of the problem “; June 2003, Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee’s visit to China, the two sides set a higher level meeting mechanism of special representatives, the purpose is to establish the mechanism to resolve border issues and political perspectives.
“In fact, the world’s border talks very difficult, long-term effort and many diplomats are talking about white head.” Dry city, said Zhao, 1962, the Indian border military conflict provoked proved force to resolve the border dispute should not be two sides of the policy options. The two sides should negotiate peace with patience, while China and India have reached a consensus.
