    China is feeling the heat for sure.



    BEIJING: Piqued over Japan's warm ties with India, an influential Chinese daily on Tuesday said New Delhi's wisdom lies in dealing with its disputes with Beijing calmly, undisturbed by "internal and international provocateurs".

    As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh undertook a visit to Tokyo amid reports of defence deals between the two sides, the ruling Communist Party's mouthpiece, the People's Daily, on Tuesday lashed out at Japanese politicians, terming them as "petty burglars" on China-related issues.

    China is locked in a maritime dispute with Japan and the two countries are currently at loggerheads over the disputed islands in the resource-rich East China Sea.

    "Before Premier Li Keqiang's visit, the China-India border standoff was hyped up by international media. The divergence and contradictions between the two countries were also exaggerated as if the Sino-Indian ties had been strained suddenly," said in an article titled 'Sino-Indian diplomatic miracle embarrasses Japanese politicians'.

    "But what surprised the media was that China and India properly solved the issue in a short time. During Li's visit the top leaders of both countries had sincere and candid talks and came to a series of strategic consensus and cooperation. The shift of Sino-Indian ties in such a short time is a miracle.

    "In the development of Sino-Indian ties there are several divergence and contradictions. Some countries see these differences as an opportunity to provoke dissension," it said.

    "China and India have great vision and great wisdom," it said, adding that "India's great wisdom lies in dealing with ties with China in a calm way, undisturbed by internal and international provocateurs."

    Referring to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe call to Japan, India, Australia and the US to jointly form a "Democratic Security Diamond" to compete with the ascendant China, the paper said Abe also made visits to countries in China's neighbourhood.

    "Some politicians just made themselves petty burglars on China-related issues," it said.

    "The so-called 'Democratic Security Diamond', 'Strategic Diplomacy' and 'Values Diplomacy' among other new terms seem very strategic. But in fact they unveiled the narrow-minded diplomatic thoughts of Japanese government. The conspiracy of these petty burglars is doomed to fail," it said.

    Its sister publication, Global Times highlighted the reports of India and Japan close to signing a deal to supply amphibious US-2 planes to India during the visit of Singh.

    Lu Yaodong, a researcher at the Institute of Japanese Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, suggested it would mark a strengthening of the alliance between Japan and India in terms of defence and military cooperation, and that Japan is trying to take advantage of the border conflicts between India and China and to contain the latter with the possible sale.

    I am surprised they didn't publish a blue book on India-Japan relation, for consumption of general public who cannot form their own opinion from different sources but have to be spoon fed from CCP funded one step solution for the same.

    Once in a decade churn. Change in personalities , change in style. I think Tibet makes them paranoid no matter what 50cent army leads you to believe.

    They are now paranoid of any military alliance coming up in Asia with India,Aus,US and Japan. If is troubling them.
    They managed to get India back off from a joint naval exercise with US and Japan.

    Tibet is less of a security concern to the leadership than it was ten years ago; the same holds for Taiwan. Right now most of China's attention is focused on Japan, and to a lesser degree, North Korea.

    Of course, any power would be paranoid of a military alliance consisting of every single other major regional power (minus Russia).

    Yep, I think China had no reason to poke India at this time. China should've used the end of the Afghan war, Sharif's election, and India's recent economic slowdown as an opportunity to try and get Pakistan to make nice and trade with India to build mutual prosperity. That would have removed most of the long-term impediments to Sino-Indian relations without forfeiting China's role in South Asia. Instead, its recent moves have only heightened Indian mistrust.

    I'd take it as more of a sign that Xi is trying to coddle a hard-line faction that saw the loss of their loudest champion, Bo Xilai, so as to have them on-board for his first phase of political and economic reforms.

    Well, only US and China are major player in this area. Russian and Europeans also have limited influence in Asia Pacific.

    Now, name other major " players" in this region plz.

    Not necessarily. Sino-Russian relations are doing extremely well - China is getting everything it wants out of Central Asia without stepping on any Russian toes - and the 'beggar-thy-neighbor' devaluation of the Yen is bothering South Korea so much that economically speaking South Korea and China are practically allies against Japan.

    Taiwan has basically been removed as a security concern. Its military is, put bluntly, no match for China's, and Ma Ying-jeou is a committed Sinophile.

    Thailand has been shifting more and more towards a Chinese orbit ever since 2006, as has Cambodia and Laos. And finally, Singapore has, for all intents and purposes, become as to China as Switzerland is to Germany - economically dependent.

    The major issues China faces now are how to secure its shipping lanes across the IOR without making India feel as if Beijing is trying to contain it, and how to permanently marginalize Japan as an influential actor in East Asian politics.

    Actually if Japanese are petty burglars, China is daylight highwaymen!

    China does not have a Blue Water Navy to be classified as a 'power' in the Pacific Rim.

    So the best thing for china would be force India into such an alliance by crossing the border and pitching tents ? Seems an idiotic move from chini pov.
