>> New thinking needed in China-India relations

China and India will hold the first joint military drill since the past five years.

All of the observers knew that the symbolic meaning of the military drill is more far-reaching than the actual meaning. However, in the face of the lobbying of Japan and the United States in New Delhi, India's unexpected action and the military interaction with China sparked discussions of the public. What is the China policy of India, the emerging arms buyer of the United States, the key chain of Japan's "Arc of Freedom and Prosperity" and the largest territorial dispute object of China? Will it be on the same side with Japan and the United States, or sincerely tolerate the simultaneous rise of China and India?

Regarding the China-India relations, many Chinese media organizations are very interested in the question- Will India be courted or forced by the United States and Japan to join them to contain China? In fact, it is likely to be a false proposition.

As a major regional and even world power full of sense of pride, India has an independent foreign policy. It never thinks itself the client state of other countries. Instead, it has always been proud of its independent foreign policy.
