BEIJING: India is taking advantage of China-Japan disputes to gain economic and technological benefits though it has been restrained in developing close defence ties with Tokyo to avoid any negative influence on Sino-Indian relations, a Chinese expert says.
Japan wants to strengthen its alliance with India to contain China while India takes advantage of the territorial disputes between China and Japan for economic and technological benefits, Wang Dehua, Director of the Institute of South Asia and Central Asia Studies at the Shanghai Centre for International Studies said commenting on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Tokyo in May this year.
Wang said India's efforts to develop ties with Japan is a part of its Look East policy, first developed and enacted to reinvigorate India's relationship with ASEAN countries, and later extended to South Korea and Japan.
"We should stay alert in defence and security, but we also should try to combine China's strategy with the Look East policy to boost bilateral cooperation," he said.
This is second such article published by Global Times, run by the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) which also carried the view of several Indian strategic analysts.
Recently ASEAN countries welcomed India and they are seeing India as a favorable nation and a counter to Chinese trade bullying, this guy sure is living in fools paradise ......
this is coming from the nation that, totally unprovoked, militarily annexed and brutally suppressed an independent, unarmed, and peaceful nation, just to gain strategic depth to potentially use against India.
Good to know that Chinese govt is pi**ed off. We should expand our ties with Japan more !!
