NEW DELHI: In indirectly saying today that China needs to respect the Hague tribunal's verdict on the South China Sea+ , India's ambassador to Vietnam gave a strong indication of what's high on the agenda of the talks the two countries' premiers will have later on Friday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to reach Vietnam+ on Friday on a state visit.
"We believe that UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) represents the foundational aspect of international law on seas and oceans, and we call on all parties to respect UNCLOS,"said P Harish, India's ambassador to Vietnam, according to ANI.
"We have constantly advocated that freedom of passage in international water(s) is important for trade," he added.
Sometimes I dont understand the behavior of Kejriwal. It seems he selectively target those whom he thinks as the hurdle in his way to become a PM. Shame on him.
We need strong relation with Vietnam which is the only country China fears. Because China lost to Vietnam each time they attacked Vietnam. India also need to show confident attitude towards china and come out of the 1962 mindset.
China should be forced to respect international arbitration
China is too arrogant and greedy.. The other G 20 leaders should put them in the right place and to make them follow the rules / judgments..

If China can have projects in POK. why cant India do projects in South China sea?
Double standards of China exposed. While China wants India to not go ahead with projects in South China Sea but it wants to continue its projects in PoK.
China should stop it''s venture project in POK. Till to that India should engage South China sea.
Paper tigers, China should look into history of Vietnam.
China must learn to respect international laws and issues that India is sensitive too.
Modiji we expect you to take a bold and courageous decision asking China to respect the judgement of the international court. Please do not disappoint us.
China should be isolated
India should first become the master of the arabian sea, Indian ocean and the bay of bengal. Scs does not need direct Indian involvement.
India must remember that Mao-se-Tung had said "power comes from the barrel of the gun". China understand only one language, barrel of gun at their head and kick their back side. If, Nehru had ordered Indian Air Force to act against China in 1962, result would have been different.
India should go for an all out war with the chinks after all they are half the size of an average Indian man.
