If the Indian government follows Chellaney's advice and changes its position on the Tibet question, such as refusing to recognize that Tibet is part of China, then China may as well not recognize Sikkim as part of India. China could even change its neutral attitude on the Kashmir issue. China can absolutely take advantage of India's own problems, such as the armed separatist factions in Northeast India.

  • Populism will ruin US-India alliance

    Roaring populist movements in the US and India demonstrates the dilemmas facing globalization and international cooperation. It is an expedient move for the two largest democracies to take more advantage of each other. Allowing populism to prevail at home while engaging in beggar-thy-neighbor policies is clearly not in tune with the style of great powers.

  • US Indo-Pacific plan self-defeating as China upholds multilateralism

    While the strategic construct of the Indo-Pacific region is showing an adverse trend toward China, people in the region should take this with a pinch of salt. China has enough capability to safeguard its own military and national security.

  • 'Quad' gears up but should mind perils

    Geopolitical confrontation should not become the theme of Asia-Pacific. Before joining the US' anti-China coalition, such as the “Quad,” relevant countries should seriously consider: Is it a blessing or a curse for regional peace and stability?

  • India loses its way with major-power ambitions

    India's highly centralized foreign policy-making process, combined with its highly decentralized domestic one, will always tend to lead India to make elaborate external strategic ideas. But with its hands tied by domestic situations, India has always encountered difficulties in implementing its wishful policies.

  • Is S.China Sea card useful to New Delhi?

    The border issue should be resolved in a rational, calm and pragmatic manner based on mutual respect. India's any attempt, such as deploying one of its warships to the South China Sea, to pressure China will be in vain.

  • Beijing-New Delhi-Moscow trilateral defense ministers' meeting key for new path

    At present, India has gone too far on its anti-China road, and is having serious trouble finding its way out. However, Beijing has been refraining from taking countermeasures so far. This shows the rationality of China as a great power, and reserves room for improving China-Indian relations.
