原文标题：India mulls joint military exercises with China
NEW DELHI: Defence ties between India and China are set to gain momentum with New Delhi mulling joint exercises with Beijing next year after the just concluded naval drills in Shanghai held after a gap of six years.
India is planning to propose joint military exercises with China which will also include army-to-army exercises, sources said here.
The armies of the two countries last held counter insurgency and counter terrorism wargames codenamed 'Hand-in-Hand' in 2009 in Belgaum in India and prior to that in China in 2007.
India and China had agreed to enhance defence exchanges and communications for better understanding and mutual trust during the fourth round of Annual Defence Dialogue (ADD) held here in December last year after a tumultuous two years for military ties.
New Delhi had suspended military exchanges with China in August 2010 after it had refused to grant permission to a senior Indian Army Commander to proceed on an official trip to Beijing.
As an immediate fallout of the event, India refused to hold the third round of military exercise and had put all other military exchanges on hold.
Meanwhile, top-level officers of the Indian and Chinese Navies held discussions to improve the ties between the two countries as four Indian warships took part in basic naval exercises there.

If you cannot fight them, join them. That way we can avoid or at least reduce wars. War is very foolish.

Well, this will get Uncle Sam's panties in a wad, won't it? I think the more China and India interact, the more you will come to understand how much you have in common. There also needs to be a counterbalance to western domination of the world. Something that's been missing since the collapse of the USSR.

This is the reason, the Phakistani pigs are opposing the joint exercises by taking fake Indian IDs.

China has eaten up parts of India, and now India wants to conduct joint exercises with China? How stupid can you get? India should hold joint exercises with USA, Russia, and Vietnam instead to contain China.

I sincerely think it to be an imperative step. We can't afford to have a two front war now. We should stop the habit of carrying history on our shoulders. We should learn from our mistakes and not be overtly complacent; at the same time, we must also not have dogmatic views. This world is changing every second; strategies, enemies, friends are turned upside down within a span of day. It's always good to realize enemy's might; many a times, it is best for us to bend than be beheaded. US can afford to build its military and naval bases anywhere in the world; our boundaries are limited. We must all go together. The sooner we learn this, the better for us. Good move altogether. I hope China complements this effort.

Who is the biggest bully in the world that pokes its nose where it does not belong, imposes economic sanctions, engages in double standards, tries to behave like a world policeman with an attitude, and goes around attacking various countries with excuses ? It is not China. It is not India. It is the USA. Therefore, an India, Russia, China military partnership is the only counterbalance for an aggressive sole super power known as the USA and will serve as a detterent against US bullying or mis adventures worldwide. It will help preserve peace and stability since the world has now become unipolar after the demise of the former Soviet Union. It is good to see China and India joining hands. Teamplay is good for a rising Asia.

Military exercise with an enemy !!! Impossible we should not think about it at first place, we must be prepare for a two front war scenario always, we are placed with unruly nations and our politicians are timid to do any dare action against anyone, they are busy in corruption all the time, even defense is not spared by these corrupt, shameless politicians...

Joint military exercises are to practice for war against a common enemy. Which common enemy will India and China fight together? Nepal? Bhutan? Burma?
please don't. PRC missiles are pre-programmed to track Cow shiet, I do not wish to see friendly fire during a live fire exercise and any Indian getting hurt.

WE must never under estimate CHINA... remember 1961? If you do, then you should also remember that they might learn more on how to back stab us than what we might learn from them. In fact, Indians are so nice to foreigners but only fight amongst themselves! North Indians Vs South Indians, Narendra Modi Vs LK Advani... wow wow wow! Meraa Bhaarath Mahaan!

USA, China, Russia or any one else, it is good to be friendly. At the same time India need to be at the sharp end of its wit in dealing with them. One of the worrying aspects of our friendship with China is, China seems to be not seriously interested in solving the all important border dispute in a peaceful way with India. As keeping the border dispute open will give China the options to attack India when it suits China! Insted China seems to keep India on the hook, while it deals with India on all other issues to its advantage. Take for instent, last years bilateral trade, there was a huge Imbalance in the deal to the advantage of China! Now co-operation with China's military, who knows what has China got in its mind ? India need to insist, peaceful solution to the border dispute between the two countries is its 1st priority, all other deals will be considered only after solving the border dispute! Solving this dispute will give a great relief to us all, no doubts!
I cant understand,if joint exercises with China,then we can have it with Pakistan also. Some stupid politicians want to show the public that,its all right with China or as if China has no choices. God forbid,but for once,Indian SC also could act like the Pakistani SC and disqualify the entire Lok Sabha. JAI HIND
