 How far will India go when playing Taiwan card? Chinese experts offer tit for tat anti licensing


Is the Indian government testing by means of private forces?

Global Times reporters have found that since early October, the Taiwan issue has been a hot topic in Indian media, universities, think tanks and other institutions. India today interviewed Wu zhaoxie, head of Taiwans Foreign Affairs Department on the 15th, to publicize his remarks on Taiwan independence -- the latter talked about the importance and necessity of developing India Taiwan relations, and even called on each other to share intelligence against hostile countries. On the 21st, Wu zhaoxie also accepted an exclusive interview with Indias wion television station, falsely claiming that the new coronavirus comes from China.

On the 20th, a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry expressed his position on the report of the trade agreement between India and Taiwan, which was reported by the Foreign Ministry of China. The Anti China scholar Brahma chelani, who is active in the western media, claimed on twitter that China has not recognized one India. Why should India abide by the one China principle? He also said that Taiwan is to India what Pakistan is to China.. Former Indian Foreign Secretary Kanwar SIBAR, who had called on India to support Taiwans accession to who, left a message in support of cherani. It was this Chone, who created the one in 2017, which one called one belt, one road initiative.

It is worth mentioning that the National Islamic University of India, which has always been known for its relatively mild attitude towards China, held an online thematic discussion on the importance of Chinese Studies in the contemporary world from 13 to 14. What is puzzling is that all the Chinese scholars who participated in the activities were all Taiwanese. Meanwhile, there are many India friends who are closely related to Chinese mainland officials.

An Indian media source, who did not want to be named, told the global times that Indian intellectuals and media circles have recently launched an ideological trend and action of confronting China. The direct reason is that the Chinese Embassy in India sent Taiwan related news report guidance to Indias mainstream media on the eve of Taiwans Double Tenth Festival. This is an unprecedented humiliation for all of us, and no foreign agency in India has been able to direct our reports, she said However, when the reporter asked it is said that the Indian Party (the ruling party of India) is also influencing many mainstream Indian media and even controlling public opinion, she did not deny it, but replied that it is not the same..

Another reason why Indias strategic circles are keen to hype the Taiwan card is that the modi government seems to be relaxing the bottom line of its Taiwan policy. On May 20 this year, Indian party congressmen Reich and kaswan congratulated Tsai ing ing Wens inauguration via video. In the video, the two claimed that India and Taiwan are both democratic countries and share the common belief in universal values such as freedom, democracy and human rights, and bilateral relations are constantly improving in the fields of trade, investment and humanities. there is a huge space for further cooperation and development in the mutually beneficial relations between India and Taiwan. .

In July, Indias foreign ministry decided to appoint gouragal DAS, director of the US Department, as Indias new representative to Taiwan. He can speak Mandarin fluently. In his early years, he worked in the Indian Embassy in China. He was a key figure in the diplomatic team that arranged the meeting between modi and trump in 2017. He was also an Indian member of the four party security dialogue mechanism between the United States, Japan, India and Australia. Therefore, the exposure of this appointment has aroused a lot of speculation.

However, insiders who are familiar with Indias foreign policy decisions told the global times that Indias successive governments have always been cautious in their Taiwan policy, and there is little interaction between India and Taiwan at the government level.. In his view, the appointment of Dai Guolan may promote Indias Eastward policy, but it is difficult to convince that India will substantially enhance its relations with Taiwan.

At present, it is mainly some irresponsible Indian think tanks and private figures who hype playing the Taiwan card, but they are more or less related to the government. For example, the Wien TV station that interviewed Wu zhaoxie belongs to the channel of zeenews television station in India. Zeenews group is controlled by Chandra, a member of the Federal Assembly supported by the Indian party, and is one of the largest media groups in India.

Lin minwang, deputy director of the center for South Asian Studies at Fudan University, told the global times that, in addition to the Indian media and experts, the relationship between the ruling Indian party and Tsai ing ing Wen authorities has been reflected for a long time. However, it is often carried out as a member of the Indian party rather than as a government official. For example, in Tsai ing ing Wens inauguration ceremony this year, the two Indian party members participated in their own name. It can be said that at this stage, the modi government still remembers to play the Taiwan card red line, and has not taken a substantive step. It has only promoted its relations with Taiwan through a number of methods, including economic and trade exchanges, and so on, to further enhance its relations with Taiwan, and to test and disgust China.

At a time when Indian media and strategic circles are hotly debating whether to play Taiwan card, Taiwan is also very aware of the time and place and takes the initiative to strengthen interaction with India. Wu zhaoxie gave two exclusive interviews with Indian media in seven days. He talked about the democratic values of India and Taiwan, advocated the opposition between China (mainland) and India, and boasted that India was the largest democratic country in the world. Ge Baoxuan, the representative of Taipei Economic and cultural center, who has just arrived in New Delhi, Indias capital, participated in the recording of a promotional film early in the day. He said in the film, I believe that through our joint efforts, Taiwan and India will become stronger partners in the Indian Pacific Region...

Objectively speaking, some of Taiwans operations have indeed helped it circle powder in India. Novel coronavirus pneumonia is a family member of New Delhis high school student, F Ali Janka, who is the daughter of a reporters neighbor. Reporters found that she liked Tsai ing ing Wens social media page. I dont care about politics, I dont know the gratitude and resentment in it, but what she said and the way she said made me feel more compatible, she said

Global Times reporters found in their daily interviews and exchanges that some Indians hold similar ideas with Priyanka. They do not understand history and care about politics. They are more sympathetic to the so-called Taiwan is suppressed shaped by Indian media. Although these people do not hold a political position and can not directly influence the governments decision-making, they are a force that can not be ignored by Indian society and civil society.

Long Xingchun, executive director of Chengdu Shitong Research Institute, told the global times that from the perspective of Taiwan, although Indias economy is relatively backward, it is, after all, a big country. Tsai ing ing Wen, leader of the Taiwan region, hopes to develop substantive relations with big countries to highlight the existence of Taiwan. In her new Southward Policy, India is an important target. Moreover, Taiwan has many investments in India, and there are more economic and cultural exchanges between the two sides. Chinese mainland is allowed to do this kind of communication. But if Taiwan relies on developing relations with India to increase its international presence, the mainland is against it.

The Global Times reporter noted that the India government revised its foreign direct investment policy in April this year. By setting up a safety review mode, it increased the difficulty of Chinese mainland enterprises in investing in India. But at the same time, it relaxed approval of the investment plan of Taiwan Foxconn, weichung and Tong and other companies in India. It is true that after the signing of the investment agreement between India and Taiwan in 2018, the bilateral trade volume increased rapidly by 18% to more than $7 billion. However, compared with the trade volume of nearly 100 billion US dollars between China (mainland) and India, this is obviously a small drop. The most important thing is that the Indian market will not be able to get rid of its dependence on Chinas API, core electronic parts, tires and other products in the short term. If small profits are more important than justice, it will be more than good for India.

A wake-up call to some irresponsible Indians

As for some bizarre remarks made by Indian media and scholars, long Xingchun said that one India was first put forward publicly by then Indian Foreign Minister svaraj when talking about Sino Indian Relations in 2014. She said that if China wants India to recognize the one China principle, then China should also recognize the one India principle. At that time, she did not know exactly what the one India principle was. Later, she explained that it meant that China would make concessions in the territorial dispute between China and India and recognize Kashmir as Indian territory. However, India has not made the above request to China through official channels, and many people in India are not clear about it.

In fact, Taiwan card has always existed in Indias China policy and strategy discussions, and is often used to compare with Tibet card. Especially when there are twists and turns in Sino Indian relations or other changes in the situation, they will quickly rise to the table. For example, after trump was elected president of the United States at the end of 2016, he broke the tradition of talking to Tsai ing ing Wen. At that time, some Indian media called this a strategic opportunity for India to play the Taiwan card. A small group of pro Taiwan personages in Indias parliament also quickly established the so-called India Taiwan parliamentary friendship forum to follow the example of the United States in using Taiwan card to contain China.

As far as India today and other local mainstream media are concerned, they have long been used to addressing Taiwan officials such as President and foreign minister. Even when it comes to representatives of Taipei Economic and cultural center in India, they will also respectfully call them ambassadors. Not to mention the small trick of printing media to publish the map of China that does not include Taiwan and Tibet. From this point of view, the Taiwan card is only magnified intentionally or unintentionally at this special node.

Extremely, extremely, extremely small probability events. As to whether the Indian government will develop substantive relations with Taiwan in the future, China experts from a well-known think tank in India used three extremes when communicating with reporters. To say the least, even if India is determined to do so, it will be a poker face step by step exploratory move forward. It is impossible to complete the change of foreign policy overnight, let alone the key point of complete separation from contact in the Sino Indian border confrontation, he said

In this scholars view, this tentative move forward may include further expanding the scale of trade in goods and services between India and Taiwan, absorbing Taiwans plans to reshape the global supply chain in the era of epidemic situation after Taiwans accession, launching informal exchange training (not exercises) between the two armies, and using Indias chairmanship of the Executive Committee of who to promote Taiwans acquisition of full membership of the organization Bit. He said that the first two are relatively soft, while the latter two are obviously provocative. If the latter two steps are reached, it is necessary to seriously discuss whether Indias Taiwan policy will change..

However, it can be made clear that after the US government adjusted its policy direction towards Taiwan, the voice of playing Taiwan card began to appear in India on a large scale, and the Indian government is essentially cooperating with the United States. India can not compete with China in terms of strength. If the United States does not play the Taiwan card, India will not have the courage. As for the aspects we can take to counter India, Lin minwang said that Indias control of Kashmir is a headache for the Indian government. Faruk Abdallah, the former chief minister of India controlled Kashmir, said after being released from prison for one year, China is welcome to intervene.. According to long Xingchun, one of the foundations for the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and India is the five principles of peaceful coexistence, which clearly states that both sides should respect each others sovereignty and territorial integrity. Therefore, China holds a neutral attitude towards the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan. If India supports Taiwan independence and supports Chinas separatist forces, it means that it has violated the principle of establishing diplomatic relations, then China will not respect Indias sovereignty and territorial integrity. Long Xingchun said that there are many armed forces in India, especially in the northeast, and they also ask China for support. The Chinese side can now remind some irresponsible Indians from public opinion in a way of non-governmental to non-governmental: if you really play the Taiwan card, China can play the northeast card.
