This statement by Alice Wells comes after the Chinese military started a build-up along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh sector and Sikkim. “External rebalancing is critical. At the end of the day, it will be the US that stands with India in pushing back against constant Chinese probing of Indian sovereignty. #USindia dosti #india,” she tweeted.

The report states that India and the US are the world’s two largest democracies, sharing common interests in free trade, defending the strategic sea lanes of the Indian Ocean, and preventing China’s growing ‘negative’ influence in the Indo-Pacific region.

Relations between India and the US  had been damaged by distrust for decades with the Indian government extensively opposing ‘extensive engagement’ with the US. However, PM Modi looks determined to change that, making moves that once would have been seen as unthinkable.

Meanwhile, PM of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Dr Lobsang Sangay issued a warning saying that the border incursions by China will continue until the issue of Tibet isn’t resolved. In an interview to India Today, PM Sangay stated that since the occupation of Tibet, China has been trying to expand its influence to the South Asian region as well.

He further said that after the occupation of Tibet, Chinese leaders including Mao Tse Tung had said that Tibet is the palm and the five fingers are Ladakh, Sikkim, Nepal, Bhutan and Arunachal.
