    Sino-Indian debate at Global Times Forum begins in a while. Open to recruitment from the community.

    Topic: "Do you think mutual distrust is the major obstacle for the bilateral relations between China and India?"

    Would love to debate the Chinese sometime, but unfortunately this topic is not in my area of expertise. Good luck to DFI members in the debate qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq

    PS : are we able to observe these debates or must we be members with global times ?

    You'll need to sign up at Global Times, you'll be added to a special "debaters" usergroup (which can post in debate threads).

    I just had a look at the debate, which side would you take?

    I saw only one took the Affirmative side.

    That is only one agrees that mutual distrust results in bad relationship between the two country.

    Thanks Soham. It's turning up to be pretty good, but hopefully the Chinese posters have an open mind to go through the material listed instead of just dismissing it as "western propaganda".

    Yeah. That's really irritating. I'm kinda bored of repeating the same thing and hearing the same reply, though.
    I think the topic is at fault due to its ambiguity. We are just going round in circles.

    It's open throughout this week. So post whenever you want to, or don't. You're both doing good :)

    Topic was trash anyway! I didnt understand what could be debated on that topic for ONE WEEK, its good that they are changing, hopefully a more engaging topic is chosen instead of ambigous ones.
