They are likely face three months jail and a fine of Rs 20, this coercive playbook met with India’s strategy of ‘physical denial’.China had to disengage and back out of the ensuing stalemate but it made clear during and since the conflict that it reserves the right to exercise “sovereign rights to safeguard territorial sovereignty in compliance with the stipulations of the border-related historical treaty” Point is the Doka La conflict wouldn’t have taken place had China really complied with “border-related historical treaties” It did because be it at LAC or South China Sea China places little premium on existing treaties or conventions preferring instead to go by own interpretations that are guided by a revisionist view of history For instance in his marathon speech during the 19th Party Congress Xi gave a glimpse into the fount of resentment that guides his foreign policy when he uttered: “We will never allow anyone any organisation or any political party at any time or in any form to separate any part of Chinese territory from China” The fiery claim turns on its head the recent history of China appearing almost always as the aggressor in territorial disputes not the defender Therefore more than ‘war’ as COAS Rawat warned the ‘salami-slicing’ tactic is at one level a part of China’s “offensive diplomacy” aimed at increasing its trade dominance as professor Vivek Mishra writes in The Huffington Post Mishra sees “non-aggressive intrusions at Demchok Chumar and the Barahoti sectors in the past” as “part of China’s continental aggression that seeks to extend its maritime arc of offensive diplomacy and merge it with a continental circumference of trade-and-connectivity dominance” This strategy may very well lead to war if it meets with strident resistance or against weaker nations but it is not a given and is even less likely in India’s case because China as a mercantile power covets India’s huge and lucrative market more than its territory Yet it feels compelled to employ coercive strategies at periodic intervals to keep India honest and limit its strategic profile in Indo-Pacific region The repeated border intrusions are frequently interspersed with diplomatic sweet talk (very often nearly simultaneously) as witnessed during China’s special representative Yang Jiechi’s meeting with NSA Ajit Doval in New Delhi last December Even as Yang claimed to deliver a “special message” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Xi and called for both countries to become ”friends for generations" and ”partners in rejuvenation” a few days later Chinese construction workers “inadvertently” breached Indian territory and began building roads Seen from this light this is China’s grand strategy of striking an effective balance between maintaining a stable relationship with India (to access its market) while leveraging its greater economic and military prowess to show who’s the boss in Asia Stripped to the bone this ‘salami-slicing’ is a sort of public messaging service As Jeff M Smith director of Asian Security Programs at the American Foreign Policy Council and author of Cold Peace: China-India Rivalry in the 21st Century writes in War on the Rocks:“PLA’s border activities. are designed to embarrass India’s leadership. and to show the Indian public and the world that China can operate at the border with impunity while underscoring Modi’s inability to secure India’s sovereign borders” This battle will be played as much in the mind as on the ground as two Asian giants jostle for space and influence establish military control over a strategic location and drive a wedge between India and Bhutan?
