New Delhi, Sep 17: Even as India tries to formulate its response to the increased incursions and border violations from China, a US think tank has labelled the communist country's aggression as direct consequence of Beijing's 'nervousness over India's rise'.
Speaking on the country's apprehension, Lisa Curtis of the Heritage Foundation said, It's something that they have to deal with that perhaps 10-15 years ago they didn't believe was something that was necessary to focus on.
"We saw this when they to tried scuttle at the last minute, the civil nuclear deal at the Nuclear Supplier Group meeting last year and so that was sort of an indication that China is not completely comfortable with India's rise on the world stage," she added.
The two countries have been in disagreements over the state of Arunachal Pradesh for quiet some some time. However, recently there have been reports of Chinese army constructing along the Sino-Indian border along with other border violations.
"Perhaps since China is dealing with its internal issue, it has not been interested in completely resolving the border issue but that said. I do not think so either side is interested in any kind of conflict. But I do not see the negotiation moving forward either," Curtis said after pointing out that there was mistrust over the border issue on both sides.
