“Sources disclosed that India is unlikely to increase its military presence along the India-China border”. This was a news item published in India’s “Deccan Chronicle” on May 2.  Reports of  warming of India-China relations are on the rise these days in India.

“Deccan Chronicle” is the leading English newspaper in South India, and according to its report, India has already “taken a clear decision”  not to enhance its military deployment along the India-China border. Security sources said that India is focusing on improving  connectivity between the two countries through land routes, while China is willing to invest more in bilateral trade instead of engaging itself in border disputes with India.

The report further says that “border intrusions” from the Chinese side have already come down significantly. And that, reeling under the impact of global recession, China has started to invest in India and is yearning to explore more potential areas of investment in India. Both the armies have agreed to uphold the treaties and agreements signed by both the governments, unlike in the past. The governments of both the countries have also started to identify sectors which will see growth with improvement in land route connectivity. Indian media reported that border representatives of the two armies met at the Chinese side on May 1.

With an improvement in the atmospherics of  bilateral relations,  demands from the Indian side also seem to have become more direct. According to a news report of May 3 in the Indian journal “Daily Excelsior”, India has demanded that China stop all construction activities in  Pakistan “occupied” Kashmir. The report said that India has  information from security personnel that some Chinese organizations are currently working on the highway passing through Pakistan-administered Kashmir, in addition to some other electrical power projects. The Indian government has time and again asked Pakistan not to carry out such construction activities.

印媒:印不再向中印边界增兵

“消息人士透露,印度不太可能在印中边界增加军力。”印度《德干纪事报》2日报道了这样一则消息。这几天,有关中印关系升温的报道在印度迅速增加。

《德干纪事报》是印度南部最大的英文报纸,根据它的报道,印度已经“做出清晰的决定”,不再向印中边界增加军事部署。印度安全机构的消息人士说,印方的焦点将对准提升印中两国陆路连通,中国也乐于更多地投资于双边贸易,而非与印度的边界争议。

报道还称,中方人员的“越界”已经明显减少,受全球经济衰退的影响,中国开始在印度投资, 并且渴望发掘印度更多的可投资领域。与以往不同的是,印中两国军方都同意支持两国政府签署的条约和协议,两国政府也已经开始确认如果陆路连通改善会给哪些 部门带来增长。印度媒体报道说,5月1日,印中军方的边界代表在中方一侧举行聚会。

在友好的双边关系气氛下,印方的要求似乎也变得直接。据印度媒体“Dailyexcelsion”3日报道,印度要求中国停止在巴基斯坦“占领”的克什米尔地区的所有建设活动。报道称,印度通过安全人员得知,中国一些机构正在建设穿过巴控克什米尔的高速公路,此外还有一些电力项目。印政府已多次向巴基斯坦方面表示,不要进行这样的建设活动。
