"Only 9 months." So how long should we wait? 9 years? 90 years? When do you expect China to reap a reward for this horrible incident, and what do you expect it to be? Please answer this question.It's been only 9 months since the first engagement.
- What did you expect to change in less than a year?
My source is common sense. Do you really think antagonizing a country of 1.4 billion people with a fast growing economy and driving them into the arms of the Quad is a smart idea? In what universe is that good for China? Generally being surrounded by enemies is not a good thing. You can take that to the bank.- What are your/our sources to read the whole situation accurately, and are we confident about their trustworthiness?
Well since they have now disengaged, the damage can be mitigated, and it might not be so bad. That's the point. If they work to improve relations now, there will be no negative long term consequences.- Do you think we can accurately guess all the long-term consequences?
Modi was in power in 2016 when relations were better.- As long as Modi and his bunch are in power, there is no room for better bilateral relations.
