Asked about China’s “invasion” of the message, he said: “I do not know where to listen to this story.” Thus, the so-called “exchange of fire Nathu La Pass” is entirely fictional Indian media on hearsay evidence of.
sensitive areas to prevent China
With the continuous improvement of China-India relations, bilateral economic and trade exchanges have become more frequent, the Indian media that of India “during fierce fighting,” the Nathu La Pass, India in fact has become an important border crossings.
According to Indian media reports, in July 2006, the Nathu La Pass border trade in India after the restart, when the region’s bilateral trade amounted to only $ 40,000, and has dramatically increased to 19.44 in 2008 million.

like to create “boundary tension”
Indian media has always been a manufacturing-India border tension habits. Last October, the Indian media has been speculation over the Bangong the “tense situation”, said China and India on the lake regularly patrol the confrontation, the Bangong easily become “the tipping point of Sino-Indian conflict.” In May 2007, the so-called “Arunachal Pradesh”, a Bharatiya Janata Party, claimed that “Chinese border guards invaded Arunachal Pradesh 20 km, and in the local construction, including a helicopter landing platform, including permanent of military facilities. “However, this statement was soon responsible for defense of the Indian Minister of State Rajan denial.

Analysts pointed out that the reason why the Indian media like to take the border issue, “says this child “, for the following purposes: First, an excuse to purchase new weapons and equipment for India’s strong military campaign. In June, India on the pretext of strengthening China’s northeastern border, “military threat”, the four Su-30 fighters deployed to the area. Second, increased bargaining chips for the demarcation, to enhance India’s disputed border region in the control. In fact, whenever held before and after the Sino-Indian border, Indian media always emerge the “China threat” theory of sound, its purpose is vague in the controversial Indian border sections to create the illusion of actual possession of India.
