Parade may trigger Asian arms race
China's grand parade is likely to trigger an arms race in its neighbourhood, an expert told TOI on Wednesday. Countries like India and Japan, which have territorial disputes with China, are likely to act quickly on the basis of Beijing's new weapons capability and will try and match its capability, the expert noted.
"India will spend a lot more on military capabilities, I am sure. It's already an important military power," Zhang Yunling, director of international relations at government-run China Academy of Social Sciences, told TOI. Speaking about Japan, Zhang said, "Japan's PM Shinzo Abe will use the parade as an argument for spending more on military."
India is being represented by minister of state of defence, Gen (retd) V K Singh. It was invited to send its soldiers for the parade, but New Delhi decided against it.
“印度会在军事能力上投入更多，这是肯定的。印度已经是重要的军事大国。”中国社科院国际关系学院主任 Zhang Yunling对《印度时报》记者说。
India need Namo for at-least 20 years and at the same time Congress and allies should be dusted for future of India ....
Develop the missiles to deliver the nuclear weapon that more than enough to avoid the war ...
there you go another excuse for kickbacks and bribe from feku govt
another pretext of army to loot ordinary indians.
I see no such need , there is no war situation in next 50 years. Also we have no money.tress on development
Stupid article. India decides its needs on strategic based on real time intelligence and security needs for deterrence. Not based on parades
India should have the best weapons, best soldiers and best ammunitions. Toilets are not that important anyway.
I liked the last line. We were invited to send soldiers but declined. We should have sent 2 million soldiers and finished off the bow bow biriyani eaters once and for all.
Is this a paid news by the foreign defence supplier companies or the local babus who are itching to make a cut in kickbacks ?
If india and Japan hold hands together what china will do nothing
