NEW DELHI: India is now actively discussing the possible sale of the indigenously developed Akash surface-to-air missile systems to Vietnam, even as the two countries steadily crank up their bilateral military ties with a watchful eye on a confrontational China in the Asia-Pacific region.
With Beijing continuing to thwart New Delhi's bid to join the 48-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group and get Jaish-e-Muhammed chief Masood Azhar designated a terrorist by the UN, while also stepping up its naval forays into the Indian Ocean Region, India is responding by fast-tracking military ties with countries in China's own backyard. The expanding "strategic and military partnership" with Japan and Vietnam, in particular, has emerged a major thrust area.
now that's called as tit for tat. if China thinks they can support porkistan and try to create a pressure on india , india must also show Chinese their place . it is very necessary to do this.
CHINA can''t be contained just by INDIA. The whole world should come together to sort the CHINESE MENACE.
ONE TRUMP with Putin is enough to contain Chinkis,my dear friend...
LOV GANDHI NT OS MAO
INDIA NEEDS TO GIVE VIETNAM TACTICAL NUKES,,, THAT IS BEST STEP,,.HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Chinese grabbed all over the world using their economical super power.
Now chinkies will go crying back to the UN
It''s very wise move by Indian govt. to assist Vietnam. China is not a friend of india at all.
TRUTH BE TOLD
Good move. Both Vietnam and India have boldly fought China in war so they know not to listen to China the bully!
Enable China''s neighbors so china feels the pinch of what he is doing with india by supporting Pakistan. Sell arms to Taiwan too.
Awesome move. Offense is the best defense.
