There are only two such countries in the world where Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gone for five times during his tenure – America and China This year, he came on a two-way visit to China. The question is, what was the result of their visits to China? This question is not related to foreign and defense policies only. It has serious financial consequences. Instead of promoting our domestic production we are purchasing large amounts of Chinese goods. Apart from this, a large portion of its prized foreign exchange reserves are also being spent in buying military materials and state-of-the-art equipment. This week, top officials of the defense ministries of India and China negotiated under the annual dialogue in Beijing.
In a statement issued by the Indian Embassy after 9th India-China annual defense and security dialogue in Beijing, it said, “Both sides agreed to increase the exchanges and dialogue through high-level visits between the defense ministries. In addition, communication between military command, joint military exercises and intermediate officers and cadet officers were also agreed on mutual visits. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chuying said, “We are confident that both sides will try to ensure peace on the border according to the agreement between the two top leaders and will ensure stability in bilateral relations.”
What’s new in this? Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping said after every meeting that peace on the border is a prerequisite for better relations between the two countries. Everyone knows that Indian and Chinese companies are indifferent to investing in each other’s countries. With excessive distrust behind it, it is feared that at any time the limitations can be wasted with their investment. In April, the two leaders had spent three days alone in Wuhan, the historic city of China, as friends. It was followed by removing the bitterness and distrust caused by the military standoff for 75 days in Dokalam. It was publicized that both sides had resolved to maintain peace on the border. Both talked about creating mechanisms and improving the dialogue to establish dialogue at the military command level so that the military did not get involved. Many commentators had thought that after the Wuhan summit, China was against Pakistan in India. Will stop using. But what happened?
For this, we have to look at the five-day visit of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in November to China. China ignored the request of Imran Khan for immediate financial help to deal with the financial crisis and to avoid taking help from the International Monetary Fund on difficult conditions. The hope of Khan’s willingness to persuade China to reduce interest burden on China’s Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPC) loan loan of 60 billion dollars was also unsuccessful. Both countries expressed their resolve to pursue guided and related projects and to protect the CPCSE project from all dangers.
But, of course, when it came to relations with India, China took Pakistan’s stand. He appreciated the Pakistani approach. Regardless of this, there is a clutter on Indian interests. The Joint Statement of both the countries discussed the difficulties of India with Pakistan. China has endorsed Pakistani efforts to improve Indo-Pak relations. It seems that China-India-China, born between Modi and Shi, is trying to improve its image in Pakistan at the expense of mutual friendship of ‘Wuhan sentiment’. Pakistan expressed its support to the “active participation of China” in South Asia Regional Cooperation Organization (SAARC). In a joint statement, China, supporting Pakistan to strengthen the global non-proliferation, said, “China appreciates Pakistan’s dialogue with the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and adherence to the NSG guidelines.” It is important, Because China is continuously blocking the path of India’s NSG membership. The main question is how will China move forward to increase friendship with India, which is probably the biggest potential market for Chinese goods? At the moment, China’s focus is on the military side of the situation. That is why he is supporting Pakistan in the diplomacy game of South Asia.
Indian schools in China: Indians engaged in jobs and business have occupied a large number of decades in various cities of China. They perform all Indian traditions and celebrate Diwali, Durga Puja, Navratri and Ganesh Chaturthi. This October, the Bengali-based Bengalis celebrated the very powerful Durga Puja. Located two and a half hours away from Shanghai, Shaoshan is an important trading hub of textile and there are large number of Indians, most of which are Sindhi. There is only one international school, which is partly of three Indian businessmen. Shaoshing International School has 245 students, 60 of whom are Indians. There are also students of Korea, Arab World, Afghanistan and Yemen. One of the school’s owners, Sanjay Sukhanani, another textile merchant, said, ‘Our plan is to expand the facilities and double the number of students.’ The plan includes taking the school to a large five-storey building in the next two years. Hemant Dey and Rajesh Sehgal are two other partners of the school. This English medium school is run on the basis of UK Cambridge Syllabus. Sukhnani said, “Opening the school is a long and difficult journey. Prior to starting school in 2010, it took us four years to persuade the local government and get different approvals. His child reads in this school. “Opening the school is a long and difficult journey.
