    China concerned over India’s naval prowess, says expert | idrw.org

    Lora Saalman, a Beijing-based associate in the Nuclear Policy Programme at the Carnegie Endowment.

    China, concerned over India’s policy on Indian Ocean, wants to establish posts in countries like Sri Lanka and Seychelles, said Dr. Lora Saalman, an American expert on arms control.

    Dr. Saalman is an associate at the Nuclear Policy Program of the Carnegie Endowment and is based at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, Beijing. Her research focuses on Chinese arms control policies, and Sino-Indian and Sino-Russian strategic relations.

    In an interaction with media persons here on Monday, she said some of the experts in China felt India was either on par with China or even surpassed it on naval power. Referring to strengthening of Indian Navy in recent years, she said the Chinese felt India might use its policy to control the Indian Ocean. “It is the first and foremost on their mind.”

    Observing that the posts could be used as refuelling points by the Chinese, Dr. Saalman however added that not all engagement was negative as military could also be used to shore up economic interests in the region.

    Dr. Saalman said China was also increasingly focusing on India and looking at where India was heading in the wake of the latter’s defence modernisation programme.

    The Chinese viewed the India-U.S. partnership as a strategy to counter China in the region, she said, adding India could become part of the United States alliance consisting Japan and Taiwan. China was also looking with interest at the shift in export controls and the easing of restrictions on technology imports by India and was interested in engaging the U.S. in technology trade as they do not have anything comparable to India, Dr. Saalman said.

    Yeah, if only the Chinese were good with their posturing, neighboring countries wont feel suffocated and hence form policies that can keep the biggies out of our oceans.

    Bloody Chinese , first they come 15 kms inside Indian territory and occupy it and then say that India should stop upgrading the infrastructure on the Indian side. What are they so frustrated about India upgrading the infrastructure on the Indian side? Think they are too much afraid of India. The whole world saw how they suffered from Vietnamese Army...

    China would be "concerned" even if we buy/manufacture a single bullet. :dude:

    Guys... Chinese arrogance is increasing day by day and it wants every country to do what it wants.

    China's concern is mostly warranted, since India has the ability to cut off the sea route, and more importantly, India never hide the intention to do so.

    It makes sense that China is working with other countries in that region to deter any adventurism from India.

    When did India indulge into adventurism in its entire history ?

    Whereas "China thy name is adventurism and military defeats"..
