The Abiding Mystery of Kashgar » Indian Defence Review

October 30, 2017

After years of silence over the sudden closure of the Indian Consulate in Kashgar, China, keen to have India as part of OBOR, is ready to reopen the consulate.

October 30, 2017

At the end of the 19th Congress, most of the Western media have declared President Xi Jinping, the winner. He is the most powerful leader since Mao, say the China watchers. But is it true?

Andaman and Nicobar Islands in light of Chinese actions in South China Sea » Indian Defence Review

October 20, 2017

As a result of this, China very pro actively took up the issue of unresolved border dispute between India and China. According to Chinese officials, some accommodation could be made on the McMahon line if India supported the claims of China in South China Sea.

The 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is scheduled to start on October 18. The date was announced well in advance, indicating everything has been set, including personnel changes in the Politburo (PB) of the Central Committee, as well as its Standing Committee (PBSC).
