250 Chinese troopers intrude into Arunachal Pradesh

As India and China are in the midst of diplomatic talks, the Chinese have made quite an aggressive move. Tensions have been rising between India and China over the inclusion of India inclusion into Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). China has been completely opposed to India’s inclusion and now they made an aggressive move even with diplomatic talks going.

Chinese troopers have crossed the Sino-Indian border by intruding into Indian Territory of Arunachal Pradesh. There were at least 250 Chinese troopers who intruded into the region of Yangtze in Arunachal Pradesh.

The reports of China committing border transgression have been confirmed by Indian Army and Intelligence Bureau. The intrusion of Chinese forces lasted for three hours on June 9 according to reports.

Even though such an intrusion was done in the midst of diplomacy, the authorities were not surprised with it. This is because the intruded region has always been considered part of the communist republic by China.

However, such a move by China during diplomatic times can easily be called aggressive even though China has been completely opposed to India’s inclusion in NSG.

China has been rather public with its opposition for India and even US for backing India. As Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an aggressive bid for entry into NSG, China released a public statement saying that there are large differences about the entry of non-NPT countries to NSG. Their statement said that there should be criteria applied equally to everyone instead of having specially-made rules for US allies.

China also questioned United States, Mexico and Switzerland for the decision of backing India’s inclusion into NSG even though India did not sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). So far, China is the biggest opposing country of India being included in the NSG. New Zealand, Ireland, Turkey, South Africa and Austria are other countries opposed to India being included.
