Indian Army Preparing for Limited Conflict with China
Many of Beijing's military capability goals have now been realised, resulting in impressive military might.
Other goals remain longer term, but the Chinese army is receiving the funding and political support to transform it into a fully modern force, capable of sustained operations in Asia and beyond, he said.
Meanwhile a British daily reported that the latest of the border talks between India and China had ended in a deadlock after China made no signs of softening its stand for “its share” of Arunachal Pradesh. The 15th round of Sino-Indian special representative talks ended on January 17 after the two-day meeting, at the end of which both the countries claimed to have made substantial progress.
The talks headed by National Security Adviser Shiv Shankar Menon and his Chinese counterpart, state councillor Dai Bingguoa went off the track at the Chinese persistence of talks on the eastern boundary in Arunachal Pradesh. “The hosts were surprised when Dai, couching his query in diplomatic niceties, asked Menon how much territory New Delhi would part with,” the daily quoted “highly placed” sources as saying.
