Indian Military General feel threatened by China

NEW DELHI - While emphasising that the "rise of China" and its "growing assertiveness" pose the most significant long-term challenge to India , the document written by Indian Army General DS Hooda said, "An unsettled border provides China the opportunity for selective provocation at a time of their choosing.

The ongoing border talks are achieving no major breakthroughs and focus on negotiations must shift to accurately defining the Line of Actual Control (LAC)."

Stating that India desires a peaceful relationship with China, the document asserts that India-China relations need not to be viewed only in terms of a "long-term strategic rivalry", since there are many "areas of cooperation".

"As growing economies, the countries share comfortable comparable challenges, aspirations and development goals," it said.
