    What is clear is that China has territorial ambitions on all its borders, and India is just defending itself. Modi shouldn’t expect much from the Chinese because they are not honest about their intentions and will renege on any deal they make as soon as it is convenient.

    “India and China are the only modern great powers that have held a largely continuous culture for several millennia” and border dispute has always been, in modern times, recurrent issue. “With some diplomatic- craftmanship, Delhi can convert its somewhat ethereal values-based soft power advantage into hard strategic and economic gains. Modi’s government seems to have recognized this and is building…to enhance India’s public diplomacy toolkit.” See India’s Soft Power Advantage: thediplomat.com/2014/09/indias-soft-power-advantage/
