'India Global': Not Just India, These 4 Countries Also Reject China's New Map

Less than a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Chinese President Xi Jinping, briefly on the margins of the BRICS summit, Beijing is back to a familiar pattern of provocations. On August 28, Beijing released a new map showing occupied Aksai Chin, Arunachal Pradesh and other parts of Indian territory as part of China. The External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, described the claims as "absurd", but Beijing's move will test Indian diplomacy. While China responded that it was a "routine exercise of sovereignty" and urged India to "not over-interpret" - India has lodged a formal protest with China. But with elections approaching, with the Opposition unsurprisingly accusing the PM's government of weakness against China, it would be tempting for the Prime Minister and his team to raise the temperature with their own rhetoric against China.
