BEIJING: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is visiting India on a three-day tour from August 12. Wang would try to make efforts aimed at ensuring that Prime Minister Narendra Modi do not join other countries in raising the controversial issue of South China Sea during the upcoming G20 meeting in early September.
China is extremely worried that several countries including the United States would raise the issue after an international tribunal rejecting Beijing's claims over ownership of much of the sea area recently. The ruling came after Philippines challenged Beijing's claim over much of the sea area at a tribunal constituted under the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Seas.
Beijing was not pleased by the guarded response from India which said that the UN convention should be effectively implemented, and all the relevant parties should cooperate in the effort. It does not want a discussion on the subject at G20, and wants India to not to join any country which is seeking a discussion.
China recently persuaded a meeting of ASEAN countries to keep the issue outside the joint communique but it is not sure of achieving a similar success at the G20 meet.
South China Sea is not a back yard of China.

Are they Joking?
This is an incomplete view of things. China has blocked India from becoming a member of NSG. China has also blocked India from becoming permanent member of the UN Security Council, for which the other four permanent members have supported India
If India Supports China on SCS, it would be an act of treachery to the USA.

how can we support u
China should be told to follow the International will.We should support the same way they supported us in NSG. They should be told that the world does not belong to them
No mercy for China. They betrayed us in NSG. Betraying everyday by trying to enter into Indian land, though there''s no firing.
