It remains for Russian President Vladimir Putin to bring India and China closer for a decisive blow to the West. Diplomat columnist Mohamed Zishan shared this opinion the other day.
“The problem for Putin, however, is that India remains suspicious of China because of the protracted border standoff,” he said.
The observer noted that after the clashes on the border with China in 2020, India took tough measures by imposing restrictions on Chinese mobile applications and investors.
However, this does not mean that Delhi does not want to challenge the dollar’s global dominance, Zeeshan added.
In his opinion, China’s concern about the situation around Taiwan is also pushing Beijing to prepare for a possible full-scale economic confrontation with the West.
“If Putin can appeal to these larger ambitions <…>, then a new bloc could form in the East. This is a trend that everyone in Washington needs to watch much more closely than now,” the observer concluded.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that a just world order should be built on the principles of respect and trust.
There is a long-standing territorial dispute between India and China over ownership of a piece of mountainous territory in northern Kashmir, as well as almost 60,000 square kilometers in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. The Line of Actual Control, which replaces the border between countries in this region, runs in the Ladakh region.
In the autumn of 1962, this dispute even escalated into a border war. A new escalation began in Ladakh in May 2020, when several conflicts between the Indian and Chinese military took place in the Pangong Lake area, after which New Delhi and Beijing increased their military presence in the region.
