外文标题：India wary of assertive China, intrusive Pakistan, IAF chief Arup Raha says
BENGALURU: With the strategic gravity shifting from west to east, especially to Asia and Asia Pacific, "India faces security challenges in the region due to an assertive China and an intrusive Pakistan", the IAF chief, Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, said on Saturday.
"The situation is not good for the environment, as peaceful rise of China remains a distant dream. An assertive China is investing heavily in developing military power, especially aerospace power, laying claims on international waters, island territories and air space over South China Sea and East China Sea," Raha said during the Eighth Annual Air Chief Marshal LM Katre Memorial Lecture.
Noting that the situation in South Asia spawning Afghanistan and Pakistan was going to be delicate, especially after the withdrawal of the US-led allied forces, the chief of air staff said Pakistan was the fountainhead of terrorism, encouraging terrorist activities despite being a part of the global war on terror.
Learn from pakistan, how to face a bigger adversary like india, without fear. Its a chicken interview. China's power comes from its economic power. You need money to build a super power military.

War with Pakistan and China is inevitable.

Only way is to modernise our defence forces with latest technological weapons,ships,aircrafts etc as both China and Pakistan are not dependable and have ambitions of expansion of Indian territories.

Mere public statements are not enough. India needs to conduct covert operations and keep itself battle ready
Taiwan will most likely slip back into China, it is after all a part of China only. China's hopes on Arunachal and Ladakh are well pipedreams.
