China’s Border Adventurism Against India Has ‘Unexpectedly Flopped’ – US Media Reports

Published

on

As India and China have agreed to a five-point consensus, Indian news agency PTI quoting US magazine Newsweek writes that Chinese President Xi Jinping is the “architect” of recent hostilities against India and by doing so he has endangered his future with the high-profile intrusions into Indian territory that “unexpectedly flopped” in the face of a fierce fightback by the Indian Army.

“Xi already roiling the Communist Party with a “rectification” campaign and mass persecution of foes, will launch “another brutal purge” following the Chinese Army’s failures on the Indian border,” Newsweek said in an opinion piece

“Unfortunately for Xi, he is the “architect” of these aggressive moves into India and his People”s Liberation Army (PLA) has unexpectedly flopped. The Chinese army’s failures on the Indian border will have consequences,” the Newsweek said, adding that the recent developments give Xi an excuse to pick up the pace of replacing adversaries in the armed forces with loyal elements.

“More important, the failures motivate China’s aggressive ruler, who as chairman of the Party’s Central Military Commission, is the leader of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and the ruling Communist Party of China, to launch another offensive against Indian positions,” the magazine, in an opinion piece,

“Beijing is accustomed to getting its way in disputed territory, especially because Indian leaders and soldiers, “psychologically paralyzed” by their loss in the 1962 border war with China, played only defense,” the Newsweek said, adding,

“Paralyzed no more. China is thought to have suffered at least 43 deaths in the Galwan clash. Paskal says the number of Chinese killed could exceed 60. Indian troops fought back ferociously. Beijing won’t admit the extent of the debacle.

Earlier, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that New Delhi and Beijing should implement the five-point consensus reached on the developments in the border regions as well as on bilateral ties.

Wang said he and Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar had an extensive and in-depth exchange of views on the situation in the border areas as well as bilateral ties during the SCO foreign ministers’ meeting.

During the meeting, the Indian side expressed its eagerness to reduce strains in ties through diplomatic and political channels, and the Chinese side is also willing to work in the same direction, he said.

The two sides reached a five-point consensus regarding the current situation and issued a joint press release on Thursday, Wang said, adding that China expects the consensus to be implemented effectively.
