外文标题：Keep out of feud with Vietnam, China tells India
BEIJING: China, which is locked in a tussle with Vietnam over disputed islands and the right to mine oil in the South China Sea, said India should not get involved in it.
"I wish to tell the Indian people that they may not worry too much about the current situation in South China Sea," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Monday. "The facts prove that Vietnam is trying to rope in other parties and put pressure on China, (but) will not achieve its aims," Chunying said.
The comment is significant because Beijing had earlier objected to Indian efforts to explore oil and gas in an island claimed by both China and Vietnam. The Chinese government does not want the ONGC to revive its contract with a state-run Vietnamese oil company for joint exploration in the South China Sea region.
Chunying said countries connected to the South China Sea should abide by an Asean brokered agreement, called the declaration on the conduct of parties, instead of quarrelling. The statement came amid tense naval activity in the South China Sea with Vietnam resisting an attempt by a Chinese oil company to set up an oil rig. The Chinese government has said the area where the rig is being established belongs to China while Vietnam claims it to be its own.

India's off-shore drilling explorations is tendered for foreign concerns and local corporates because of shortage of man ,material and resources. Why do ONGC and Government of India peep into the troubled waters of South China sea ???????? better to get out of confrontation with our close neighbour China at the earliest. It is the best diplomacy to continue dialogue with China to solve the border disputes with that country.

hmmm......but do you know that no one has successfully negotiated with China? Any discussion always leads to the issue being "solved" only on Chinese terms. There is only one thing the Chinese or rather the People's Republic of China understands and that is how strong the other party is. And the Chinese are quite right, the entire world in reality runs ONLY on any nation's power and strength and nothing else, irrespective of what is actually mouthed by the diplomats or what is said in those soft statements from the spokespersons of the respective foreign ministries. It is no use blaming China for this phenomenon, it is harsh reality. The sooner we get wise the better.
Dear chinease , we are not worried , we are determined , go f yourself , we will do what best for our economy and country

China need not to dictate Indian action. India can manage global affairs in their own terms.

Flat noses must follow their own advice first, whenever Pakis attack India, flat noses are inside Pakistan fanning the flames and providing them weapons to be used against India.

China should not tell India what to do. Which neighbouring country China does not have problems with?
