On OBOR, US backs India, says it crosses 'disputed' territory
WASHINGTON: The Trump administration on Tuesday threw its weight behind India's opposition to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor(CPEC), saying it passes through a disputed territory and no country should put itself into a position of dictating the Belt and Road initiative.
India skipped the Belt and Road Forum (BRF) in May this year due to its sovereignty concerns over the nearly $60 billion CPEC, a flagship project of China's prestigious One Belt One Road (OBOR), which passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

At the first sign of even a small infrastructure development like a road or even a bridge near the border China makes official objections and unbelievable noise. They even objected to Japan''s proposed investment in north east. But Indian government under congress never even raised a finger at this huge strategically important development-CPEC.How surprising. Was MM Singh''s government sleeping or did Chinese had a secret deal with Rahul ji-recently they have been in touch with him over and above government of the day.Modi ji did not attend OBOR summit and refused to be part of it, and very rightly so. I sometimes don''t believe hypocrisy of Chinese. They totally disregard other''s sensitivities,are amazingly shameless and show as if they are very surprised at India''s reluctance to join OBOR.

Change in policy should not merely be in words there has to be matching at ground level that is China has to be forced to stop CPEC project openly at international forum..
Else it will be of no use..
