外文标题：Military exercise with China shifted from near the border to Pune
” (HiH) counter-terrorism exercise with China far away from the earlier planned location at Bathinda, which was close to its western front with Pakistan.
Defence ministry officials on Friday said the fourth HiH exercise with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) would now be held at Pune in mid-November. Though officials maintained the decision was taken because Pune had better “infrastructure and weather” than Bathinda, the move comes in the backdrop of recent border troubles with both Pakistan and China.
First, it was the troop face-off at Chumar and Demchok in eastern Ladakh, which coincided with President Xi Jinping’s visit to India last month. Then, it was the cross-border mortar duels along the International Border and Line of Control with Pakistan since the beginning of this month. China, in particular, has been testing India’s resolve both on the land boundaries as well as in the Indian Ocean Region with its Maritime Silk Route plan.
If the HiH drill had been held at Bathinda, it would have been the first time the PLA would have exercised close to India’s western border with Pakistan. China and Pakistan, who often describe themselves as “all-weather friends”, do of course conduct joint combat exercises close to the Indo-Pak border from the other side.
