New Delhi: If India stirs up conflicts in several spots, it must face the consequence of an all-out confrontation with China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Chinese state media reported.
“As time is on China's side, New Delhi is deeply concerned with China's rapid rise. Provocation at the border reflects India's worry and attempt to sound out China,” said the article in Global Times.
The article also asked for China to “get ready for the face-off becoming a long-term situation” and at the same time “maintain a sense of rationality”, before adding that the two sides needed to exercise restraint and avoid the current conflict spiralling out of control.
This comes a day after the People's Liberation Army (PLA) conducted live-fire exercises in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The brigade that conducted the drills was from the PLA's Tibet Military Command and is one of China's two plateau mountain brigades.
On Sunday, Global Times had said that India was receiving a "massive influx" of foreign investments which would greatly enhance its ability to develop the manufacturing sector and China should "keep calm" and start working on a more effective growth strategy for the new era.
