 Indian media: India decides to withdraw from the multinational military exercises China will participate in

Russia and India are strategic partners, a spokesman for Indias defense ministry was quoted as saying. At the invitation of Russia, India has participated in many international activities. However, India has decided not to send a delegation to the caucasus-2020 this year due to the outbreak of the new coronation and subsequent difficulties in the exercise.

Indias Asia International News Agency (ANI) quoted sources from the Ministry of defense as saying that Chinas participation in the exercise is also one of the reasons for Indias withdrawal from the multinational military exercise. In addition, the source added that Indias defense minister will visit Russia from September 4 to 6 to attend the SCO defense ministers meeting.

According to Russian media, the caucasus-2020 strategic exercise will be held from September 15 to 26 in the Astrakhan region of southern Russia, mainly to assess the military readiness with the Russian army. Besides China, Pakistan and other SCO members, Mongolia, Turkey, Turkmenistan and other countries were invited to participate in the exercise in Russia. Last year, India, Pakistan and all SCO Member States participated in the exercise.

In an exclusive interview with cnbc-tv18, Chinas ambassador to India, sun Weidong, on August 28, said in an exclusive interview with cnbc-tv18, the main financial news channel of India, that the basic facts of China and India as the two largest neighboring developing countries have not changed, that the direction of mutual cooperation has not changed, and that no one can do without another.

Three and a half months after the outbreak of the India China crisis in Eastern Ladakh, negotiations between military commanders of the two sides have reached an impasse, and both sides are reluctant to make concessions. General Bipin Rawat, Indias chief of defense staff, pointed out sharply on the 24th that if the military and diplomatic negotiations to resolve the dispute fail, then the military choice is still on the negotiation table. Sun Weidong, Chinese ambassador to India, on the 25th, expressed his goodwill at a video forum between Chinese and Indian youth.

China and India shout

Five rounds of negotiations failed

So far, the Indian army and PLA commanders have held five rounds of negotiations, but failed to resolve the crisis. Previously, India believed that China invaded the actual control line along a large area of the eastern border of Ladakh. At the end of the last round of negotiations, an official Indian source explained to the Hindustan Times: the negotiations are deadlocked because the Indian army insists that the PLA must withdraw to the positions it occupied before April 2020, and China is not willing to restore the status quo in some areas. But the actual control line is a basically uncertain boundary line separating the territory of India and China.

One of the disputed areas is Bangong Lake. According to the times of India, the PLA has built a road in the area, crossing a gray zone, which has always been in conflict due to overlapping claims for sovereignty over the actual control line. At present, India and China have not exchanged official maps of the actual control line, which makes pushing each other over the border a major dispute.

In fact, the Indian authorities have been adopting an uncompromising attitude towards China recently. On July 3, Indian Prime Minister Narendra modi also visited a frontier post in Ladakh. In response to this development, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said: no party should take any action that may lead to the escalation of the situation.

What are the military options?

Indian media said that although Bipin ravat said India has military options that it can exercise, experts believe that the militarys military options will not be carried out in the existing hot spots between India and China.

My best guess is that this will not be a full-scale military retaliation, but a limited action in places where Chinas strength is weak. Sameer Patil, an international securities expert at gateway house, a Mumbai think-tank, said: we obviously want to score where China is at a disadvantage, and we certainly dont want to risk going into places where they are superior.

At the same time, experts believe that although there have been at least five rounds of talks at the medium level, the possibility of disengagement and relaxation of tension is unlikely because both sides are ready for the winter.
