CDS Bipin Rawat says possibility of larger conflict with China exists

Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat on Friday said that there is a possibility of larger conflict with China if unprovoked military actions along the border increase. Rawat also said that collusion between China and Pakistan always creates a threat for instability in the region.

Even though there is not much probability of full scale conflict with China, unprovoked tactical military actions always keep the threat of larger conflict.The situation along Line of Actual Control (LAC) continues to remain tense amid transgressions by the Chinese army, Rawat added.

Chinese army is facing unanticipated consequences along the border after the strong reply by the Indian forces, Rawat said at a webinar by National Defence College.

India will not accept any shift in LAC, he said

Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, China has become repressive at home and aggressive abroad considering its intentions and posturing in South China Sea, east China Sea and Taiwan Strait, Defence chief said.

Rawat said the Sino-Indian relationship will exist to be a fundamental competitive one owing to China’s support to Pakistan, its increasing influence in south Asia through the belt and unbalanced economic relationship in the near future.

He said the India -Pakistan ties have reached a new low  due to the unabated proxy war in Jammu and Kashmir led by Pakistan. A never-ending anti-India rhetoric on social media has also created disharmony within India.

Rawat’s remarks came as both India and China started their eight round of talks to deliberate on disengagement from all points of friction along the LAC.
