Of India & China....

India took a tough line ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to India later this month. “For India to agree to a one-China policy , China should reaffirm a one-India policy ,“ external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said. “When they raised with us the issue of Tibet and Taiwan, we shared their sensitivities. So, we want they should understand and appreciate our sensitivities regarding Arunachal Pradesh,“ the minister said. India has refused to endorse the “one-China“ policy since 2010, removing it from a joint statement during the visit of former premier Wen Jiabao to New Delhi.
Describing the India-China relationship as being “very good“ but one of “competition and cooperation“, Swaraj promised the forthcoming visit by Xi Jinping to India would be “substantial and solid“.
She played down Modi's remarks in Japan which were believed to be aimed at China, saying those were actually not aimed at anyone.
