    BEIJING: India has been pursuing an independent foreign policy based on its national interest, including good ties with Beijing, an influential Chinese daily said today, dismissing perception that New Delhi's 'Look East Policy' is aimed at collaborating with US to contain China.

    "India lately held a trilateral dialogue with the United States and Japan, and it has also close contacts with Vietnam, Myanmar and some other Southeast Asian countries," an article in the state-run People's Daily Online said today on India's Look East policy.

    "However, it cannot be deemed as collaboration of the United States and India. India has been pursuing the independent foreign policy and mainly considers its own interests," it said

    The article said "it is hard to imagine that India will completely follow the foreign policies of the United States".

    "India has an all-round diplomatic policy and it both maintain relations with the United States" and takes account of "relations with other countries".

    It said India keeps "a close contact with Russia, Japan and the European Union countries and its relation with China is also positive," it said.

    Stating that India had submitted "positive proposals" at the recently held BRICS summit in New Delhi, the daily said "it is groundless to think its Look East Policy' and the American strategy of eastward transfer are converging", it said.

    The daily said while the strategy of eastward transfer "catered to the psychology of India's misgivings and precautions against China, it "also manifested its enthusiasm".

    The article is second such write up by Chinese state-run think tanks in recent months, acknowledging that New Delhi was pursuing an independent policy, dismissing earlier perceptions that India's East Asia push into Beijing's neighbourhood was aimed at containing China.

    Looks like Obama is completely clueless when it comes to China. Everything Bush
    did has been washed away by Obama and now a second term will ensure USA falls
    even further behind.

    After so much of India bashing, incursions, passport and visa hassles, problems of Dalai Lama holding the Buddhist Meet, the relations got prickly.

    Even as late as a few days back, China warned of dire consequences if India set up oil exploration in the South China Sea.

    One should not read too much in all these placating news stories.

    It is an old hat to give a sense of relief so that complacency sets in.

    This maybe to placate with the recent developments and anti China sentiment gaining
    strength in ASEAN nations,Japan, USA and India. It seems China is giving specific importance
    to India as a possible game changer in any future anti China conflicts?

    Such articles are to throw us off our guard. There are only hawks in the CCP and PLA. We should start arming the Tibetans and the Uighuirs. It will be a nice wake up call if a Tibetan drive a truck loaded with explosives into one of they army bases in the plateau.

    Chinese are a focussed people and who have great nationalistic feeling about the supremacy of everything Han.

    They are also a very patient people. They are not averse to playing to the sentiments and lace issues with piety and platitude to put the adversary off guard.

    One has to see the manner how the US is now lamenting that they have miscalculated China's military growth and its aims.

    China had lulled them with all this Peaceful Rise hogwash and opening up their markets. It was done only to bridge the gap having made the West and US complacent.

    One should not take China at face value. They think deep and they look deep into their future and structure their policy and response accordingly.

    India should be wary and not get lulled into complacency or think that China is giving them space.

    At Bandung, they gave Nehru and India a high pedestal to stand on and then they attacked in 1962 when India was dreaming of grand design as the Vazir of the Non Alignment Group spreading Peace and Happiness all around!

    CCP is really confused about India. Initially they thought Look East policy is nothing but Gang-up-on-China plan of GOI. But India not towing to US lines & still continuing SCS policy is making them think otherwise.

    For PRC, its easy to deal with a collective threat of US backed initiative ranging from Pacific to IOR. But independent separate taming policies of US, India will consume their resources and make life harder for hegemonic ambitions.

    Chinese have supported Rogue nations all thruout their peaceful rise. These
    nations have served as proxies for the Chinese. Making the Chinese appear
    as peaceful while they still achieved their aims thru their proxies. Making China
    a P5 nation will be a decision that the West and USA comes to regret dearly.
    China have violated all major treaties and used their position to a maximum
    to further their hegemonic designs.

    Chinese were not confused they turned up the heat in Arunachal and became
    actively involved in POK and with Pakistan. They have played all their cards
    while others have not revealed their hand.

    That is true. Chinese should thank India for remaining soft on Tibet. If India start recognizing Tibetian effort then PRC will be in trouble.

    Note that the Chinese have blamed Pakistan for Uighur Terrorism openly and have named the terrorists and confiscated their property as also impounding their bank accounts.

    They never did it so openly before.

    China Blames Foreign-Trained Separatists for Attacks in Xinjiang
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/02/world/asia/02china.html

    So, that means that they are getting tough with Pakistan?

    Wrong.

    It is to build up an excuse to demand operating bases in NWFP and FATA so that they can take on the Uighur rebels!

    Even that is wrong.

    They are wanting to plonk themselves between the US in Afghanistan and Pakistan so that Pakistan can breathe since the US will not then use Drones or carry out cross border raids. This will endear them to the Pakistani population.

    Then they will carry out movement into Afghanistan once the US leaves so that their hold around the area become firm and their routes into Iran and its ports including Chahbahar (constructed by India) becomes a reality. And because of that they are supporting Iran against the US at all international forums.

    China Seeking Counter-Uighur Military Bases In Pakistan?

    n its effort to combat separatist Uighur groups, China is apparently seeking to establish military bases in the part of Pakistan that borders the Uighurs' home province of Xinjiang. That's according to Pakistani journalist Amir Mir, writing in Asia Times:

    While Pakistan wants China to build a naval base at its southwestern seaport of Gwadar in Balochistan province, Beijing is more interested in setting up military bases either in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan or in the Federally Administered Northern Areas (FANA) that border Xinjiang province.

    Note: Very noble intentions of the Chinese.

    But they will build where it helps her to further her hegemonic aims.

    The remainder is to throw the world off the scent!

    Now if that is right, what has NWFP got to do with Uighur rebels?

    So,shouldn't they have operating base in Balochistan and not NWFP, more so since China has plan

    Obama is likely to be assassinated before he is re-elected.
