'Full-scale war between India, China likely soon', predicts political analyst Desai

'Full-scale war between India, China likely soon', predicts political analyst Desai

And a solution will also emerge from it.as far as economic strength is concerned, China is one of the leading countries among major contributors and economic partners.

"Six ministries and institutions made remarks on the incident within the past 24 hours", the article in the daily run by the Communist Party of China said.

It is a very powerful army and I think they also have (much) training in mountain warfare", Desai said."So, according to me, it will be a very tough fight for India.

"We want to give peace a chance and allow India to recognize the grave consequences".

The Doklam stand-off began in mid-June near the tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan when Indian troops moved in to prevent China from constructing a road on Bhutanese territory on the Doklam plateau.

The article said that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) can easily and effectively destroy Indian troops at Doklam.

On Wednesday, China ramped up the rhetoric, accusing India of "concocting" excuses over the illegal entry of the South Asian nation's military into Chinese territory.

"What's more, India "is building roads, hoarding supplies and deploying a large number of armed forces on the Indian side of the boundary", which also "is by no means for peace", he said".

An editorial published in the Global Times claimed that the Chinese PLA has "sufficient preparation for military confrontation" and that it would be "a war with an obvious result". "If a war spreads, the PLA is perfectly capable of annihilating all Indian troops in the border region." the article reads.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to visit China early in September for a summit of BRICS leaders.

The editorial further said, "Modi government's hard line stance is sustained by neither laws nor strength". When asked about the possibility of any backchannel discussions with the USA on the Doklam standoff, Desai said that there were not just backchannel negotiations in play but it was being dealt with at the highest level by President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who talk directly to each other. "This administration is recklessly breaking global norms and jeopardizing India's national pride and peaceful development".

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Rajya Sabha on Thursday said that a solution to the Doklam standoff lies in dialogue and not war.

The document says that as of the end of July, more than 40 Indian border troops remained, down from more than 270 with weapons and two bulldozers who advanced more than 100 meters (yards) into Chinese territory on June 16.

Beijing conveyed to New Delhi that the current stand-off in Doklam Plateau was out of the purview of the Special Representatives appointed by China and India to negotiate a settlement of the disputed boundary.

New Delhi, however, has not accepted Beijing's contention as it views the status of Sikkim as settled-that is, as part of India.

If a war is to break out in the two theatres, which he predicted will begin very soon, it will see the United States and India on one side and China on the other.
