外文标题：India talks tough on one-China policy, says reaffirm one-India policy first
NEW DELHI: India on Monday took a tough line ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to India later this month. "For India to agree to a one-China policy, China should reaffirm a one-India policy," external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said.
"When they raised with us the issue of Tibet and Taiwan, we shared their sensitivities. So, we want they should understand and appreciate our sensitivities regarding Arunachal Pradesh," the minister said.
India has refused to endorse the "one-China" policy since 2010, removing it from a joint statement during the visit of former premier Wen Jiabao to New Delhi.
Describing the India-China relationship as being "very good" but one of "competition and cooperation", Swaraj promised the forthcoming visit by Xi Jinping to India would be "substantial and solid".
She played down Modi's remarks in Japan which were believed to be aimed at China, saying those were actually not aimed at anyone. This was an attempt to gloss over a remark which must have rankled in China while making Modi's Japanese hosts happy. Swaraj said, "He never referred to any specific country. It was media's guess. He spoke about 18th century expansionism." Addressing Japanese businessmen, PM had taken a swipe at China, albeit without naming the country. "There are 18th-century-style ways and thinking that involve expanding (geographically) by taking away the land of another nation and going into seas," he had said.
Let's talk tough with China which in turn must stop illegal aid to Pakistan.
While dealing with china. We need to be cautiously aggressive. We should upgrade our boarder infrastructure very fast. this time i agree with Sushma Swaraj who sent a tough message.

China should vacate Aksai Chin and stop claiming Arunachal as Southern Tibet. Then India can think of accepting One China policy.

China can not have double standards. The stand taken by External Affairs Minister is correct and made known to China.
