The only problem I see here is Russia doing the bidding on China's behalf. The joint statement has Russian influence all over it.
Russia got China a favourable statement from us in exchange for a favorable statement that we got from Russia during the NSA level meet on Afg earlier.
So 1) Russia failed to coerce China to be a part of NSA level meet and 2) is now firefighting on China's behalf.
It's evident Russia is losing the appetite needed to be a "superpower".


Also, we got some (new) lip service in exchange for the Olympic green signal.

True , but Chinese did same thing.

They never mentioned 'India' or 'Indian Army' by name when reporting deaths or military exercises or border problems.

even chinese was confused ,

its was clash with "foreign army" in tibet border.
Good observation.

Just saw this news update on WION. According to Palk's findings, CCP is looking to set up a base in Equatorial Guinea for direct access to the Atlantic. This follows the tell-tale signs that we see in Gwadar and Sri Lanka - started off with a commercial seaport developed for the Guinean government, and using that as a 'payment', building the new military base.

The reason why I posted that picture was to highlight the Mobile Gun System that the Chinese have inducted in large numbers. Meanwhile, TATA-DRDO Kestrel is still undergoing trials in Ladakh.

The lack of Kestrel already in the military is a worrisome sign. We don't need light tanks; we need MGS and APCs there as light and swift mobile armour whenever shit hits the fan. T-90s can be the 'heavy' armour that can supplement Kestrels.

Interestingly enough, Kestrels already have obtained export clearance from the Government back in 2019.

So what the heck are we playing at with their trials? Is trials some sort of cover word when we don't want to release the info that it has been inducted?

Why doesn't India boycott the Winter Olympics?

China is not occupying Australian or US land but they are still boycotting them.

We have to join countries that are diplomatically boycotting Beijing Olympics. It does not bring any value but it sends a message.
It's shameful that even countries like UK who have no significant dispute with China are diplo boycotting it, but not us!
Very regrettable!
Lavrov took Jaishankar for a good ride this time.
Why our policy planners so incoherent and suffer from dissociative personality disorder?

Tomorrow will Russia accept India's demand to publicly thumbs up any US led initiative?

We should backtrack from the joint statement and diplo boycott Olympics. It will display our pragmatism, and it will send a message to Putin that our dispute with China is NO child's play.

I do not think Putin/ his FM takes issues which involve India's sovereignty seriously.
