外文标题：Respect Indian sense of national pride: Chinese media
BEIJING: Underlining that China's "surrounding environment" will suffer if India becomes another Japan or Philippines in confronting it, Chinese media on Monday called for understanding and respect for "Indian sense of national pride".
As Chinese Premier Li Keqiang kicks off second day of his India tour, the Chinese official media is full of reports and analysis of Sino-India ties with one tabloid daily, the Global Times, came out with editorial, saying that 'Sino-India ties transcend media hype'.
"There are many weaknesses in the bilateral relationship which can be exploited by outsiders. Without mutual respect, small frictions can be exaggerated," it said, apparently referring to a recent military stand off at the Daulat Beig Old in Ladakh area after Chinese troops intruded 19 kms inside Indian territory.
"The Indian sense of national pride is very strong but Chinese society doesn't want to adapt. Chinese people lack understanding and respect toward India. They tend to judge it according to ill-conceived preconceptions," it said.
"However, China's surrounding environment will suffer if India, a country which has the prospect of running neck-and- neck with China, becomes another Japan or Philippines in terms of its policies toward China," it said, noting that the situation at the Sino-Indian border is much better than the disputed islands with Japan or South China Sea, where Beijing is locked up in maritime disputes.
However, the relationship is at its "best period in decades despite mutual suspicion".
"Both China and India should bear the primary responsibility for cultivating the bilateral relationship. They should create more 'good news' to counter media hype. Not only determination, but also wisdom is needed to develop Sino-Indian strategic ties," it said.
"Grumbling about media coverage doesn't help. Governments should also play a role in guiding public opinion," it said.
Referring to Li's choice to make India the first stop of his maiden foreign tour, it said, "his selection of India for his first overseas trip has widely been interpreted as a sign that China is attaching greater importance and respect to this large neighbour".

Ni hao! Welcome to India! No more cross boarder terrorism or invasion of Indian villages! any kind of intrusion by Chinese will be a threat to peace and stability in South Asia!
Good, the Chinese should listen to what their media is saying and abide. Never intrude again and all will be well.

Why can't India and China live like Canada and USA,, Both the countries have somewhat identical eastern culture. . Peace bewteem them will undoubtedly lead to higher living standards for their masses. The media in both the countries should not raise unnecessary rubble in this regard to worsen the prevailing situation. The media in both the countries must be controlled for the ultimate benefit of India and China.

You are comparing apples with pears e.g. Since when did USA & Canada fight a war; e.g.Since when did Canada give nuclear bomb to Cuba e.g since when did USA invade Canada by 19km?. When you have had such history - all talk is just talk- feelings take a long while to subside.

There was a war between the USA and Canada in 1812. Perhaps you need to research this and then talk. The war lasted for 32 months! I feel India and China need to have friendly relationships and develop good economic, cultural and people to people relationships. It's the only way to check mate Pakistan and win.

All talk... why did the incursion then? If you don't want India to be another Japan or any of your neighbours, then stop meddling with Indian borders. All your neighbours are against you bcoz of your stupid border policies!

Chinese's main irritation is Dalailama allowed to freely air his views and his tactical methods towards Tibeteans. Otherwise they are business friendly with India and also make effort to tie up to keep Japan, Korea at bay.

India should judge China by her actions and not words that China has betrayed all along.
Chinese people lack understanding and respect toward India. They tend to judge it according to ill-conceived preconceptions," it said. When corruption and scam stops in India and India grow strong economically and militarily then every country will respect India. To get back that respect, India need leader like Narendra Modi.

Li's choice of India as his first foreign destination as Premier has been nullified by their calculated pre-visit intransigence in Laddakh! China lacks wisdom and sincerity.

MANMOHAN IS ASKING THE CHINESE FOR THE SAME KIND OF RESPECT, WHICH HE HIMSELF IS GETTING FROM INDIANS ;)
Ashok Prabhu (Margao,Goa.)
Tibetan problem cannot be solved by armed struggle because China is too big a foe.However,it can be solved by concerted negotiations with some amount of International Pressure .
In terms of size (areas wise) China is 3 times the size of India. But the land and resources in China are under much more strain than India as only 1/3 of the land in China is habitable or capable of sustaining population.

Another Chinese bluff. Talking about respect while trying to strengthen its military dominance around India is ridiculous. This creates an illusion that China is compromising and the attention is diverted from the real diabolical plans. It is like that story I read in childhood where a crocodile invites the monkey for dinner out of 'respect' while the real agenda is the croc-wifey wants to feast on monkey heart.

The Chinese media, while mentioning that Chinese should stop looking down upon India should also include how much respect Indians have for the Chinese, zit. China is not revered in India either, we don't hate China because we know that we can easily dwarf their economy, if every state becomes a Maharashtra or Gujrat.

Never trust china with her words, act n speak according to their action. I don't understand what china is trying to prove with the peace talk n mutual trust, after their true face at depseng intrusion at Ladakh... If de history is to learnt from, Indian leaders should tread wisely but boldly and should give strong signal. I am happy to hear that prime minister Man Mohan Singh reiterated to Li that Dalai Lama being a honoured guest of India was ever allowed to involve in anti china activities in Indian soil. By saying so, India gives a strong message to Beijing about her stand and hasn't bow to china like Nepal.

Before we get excited and reach for the champagne glasses, it is important to bear in mind that the Chinese media is simply patronizing India and Indians. Actions speak louder than words. IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK OURSELVES: (1) Will the Chinese now stop encircling India from the south with their string of pearls? If not, can we also build a string of pearls with Japan, Vietnam and Philippines to encircle China? (2) Will the Chinese now stop sending their submarines into the Indian Ocean Region? If not, can we also our submarines into the South China Sea? (3) Will the Chinese now stop supporting Pakistan against us? If not, can we also start supporting Japan against China? These important questions are unanswered from the meeting between MMS and the Chinese Premier and their press conference to the global media. It is disgusting to look at the smile on MMS's face when these important questions are unanswered and he looks as if though he had achieved a historic diplomatic breakthrough! Even a leader from a small nation would have bravely raised these important questions with the Chinese Premier. Only the Italian Raj Congress is celebrating except India. Bharat Mata awaits the arrival of Narendra Modi to free her from the clutches of the Italian Raj Congress. JAIHIND!

It is indeed surprising to note the forthrightness of the Chinese media when it judged the Popular Indian public mood correctly, vis a vis china. They have rightly felt the pulse of the average Indian on the street in stark contrast to the reactions / posturing of our N etas and Bureaucrats. We definitely want good neighborly relationship with China, but sans any bullying tactics on their part towards us.

Do not compare India and Japan vis-a-vis China. Japan defeated China and humiliated it many times. Japnease army used chinese women as gaisha in WWII. China still have fears with Japan. Japan bought island from South Korea which was claimed by China. SO be careful in comparing..
