China's Communist Party Run News Paper Launches Attack on India
China is up to something.
In an editorial published in the English language news paper run by the Chinese communist party, China voiced strong worded accusation that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to "disputed territory" - that India calls Arunachal Pradesh - was a "provocative" and "Dangerous" act.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made another provocative and dangerous move by visiting the East Section of the China-India Boundary, which India calls Arunachal Pradesh, on October 3 ahead of a local legislative election.
The editorial further charges that the Indian PM's visit was "designed" to put the "disputed border region" under the de facto administration of India - which is already a reality.
The visit is designed to put the area, a disputed border region between China and India, under the de facto administration of India.
China has completed land border demarcation with all of its neighboring countries but India.
Chinese foreigh ministry spokesman warned India against "provoking " China. Spokesman Ma Zhaoxu expressed "serious dissatisfaction" created by Indian PM's visit to the "disputed" Himalayam region what they called "Southern Tibet".
China and India have not reached any formal agreement on the border issue," Ma said. "We demand that the Indian side pay attention to the serious and just concerns of the Chinese side and not provoke incidents in the disputed region, in order to facilitate the healthy development of China-Indian relations."
The 'punch line' of the editorial reads like this.
It looks as if a breakthrough in talks is unlikely to happen any time soon.
In the meantime Chinese imports and exports are continued to be falling. It is believed that such verbal attacks on India by Chinese communist party is just an attempt to divert the attention of Chinese people from the difficult economic situation
