Sealing Indo-Pak border is India’s cold war: Chinese analysts
Beijing: Calling India’s decision of sealing Indo-Pak borders by 2018 as irrational, Chinese analysts have said that the step will hinder the bilateral ties between both the nations and will evoke more tension among the people of Kashmir and PoK. They said that the decision shows India’s cold war mentality
Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday had announced the 3,323-km border between India and Pakistan will be completely sealed by December 2018. The decision came after Uri terror attack in which 18 Army jawans martyred.
What Chinese analysts said to China’s local daily?
- India is making a very irrational decision, since no exhaustive investigation has been conducted after the Uri incident.
- No evidence proves Pakistan is behind the attack.
- India's decision reflects its Cold War mentality and would only cause deeper hatred among residents living in Indian- and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.
- Since Pakistan is China's all-weather strategic partner, India's decision would make China-Pakistan-India relations more complicated.
Hu Zhiyong further stated that China also wants peaceful decision regarding Kashmir as it is also linked to the national security of their homeland.
