Beijing China : Propelling bilateral tensions further between New Delhi and Beijing by rolling out provocative statements, the Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece Global Times has warned that India "could face military pressure" from China, Pakistan or even Nepal if tensions along the border continue to escalate.Quoting Hu Zhiyong, a research fellow at the Institute of International Relations of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, an editorial published in the state newspaper on Wednesday said, "India has engaged in border disputes with China, Pakistan and Nepal at the same time. As Pakistan is a reliable strategic partner of China, and Nepal also has close ties with China, and both of them are key partners under the China proposed Belt and Road Initiative, if India escalates border tensions, it could face military pressure from two or even three fronts, which is far beyond India''s military capability and this might lead to a disastrous defeat for India."

Delhi Diaries: Congress' resistance to build new leadership; the Press Information Bureau pushing the BJP narrativeIn the last six years, the personality driven diplomacy skills of the prime minister, Narendra Modi, have gained much attention. However, with bitterness seeping into India s relationship with China following the killing of 20 Indian soldiers at the border, the same approach has come to haunt Modi and his government. A video from 2015 is being circulated on social media in which the PM is heard talking about his extraordinary personal relationship with the Chinese premier, Xi Jinping, while addressing the Indian diaspora in Shanghai. In the video, Modi mentions having received a phone call from President Xi in 2014 after winning the general elections. Modi claimed that he was pleasantly surprised when Xi gave him a description of his birthplace, Vadnagar. Modi said Xi told him that he had read about Vadnagar in an account by the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang, and added that after returning from Vadnagar to China, Hiuen Tsang had visited Xi s birthplace, Xian. Modi said Xi even took him to the latter s birthplace for a visit. Amid applause, the PM stressed that their conversation was proof of the affinity , intimacy and brotherhood between the two premiers. The same Xi has now turned into one of the most hated figures for the saffron brigade and this old video has turned into an embarrassment for the ruling party, which is desperately trying to counter it by flooding social media with charges of a warm relationship between the Nehru Gandhi family and the Chinese establishment.
