China may put up a major military offensive to grab lands, says report

India vs China is the biggest test of the century. Pic courtesy:The Economist According to the latest report by an independent group of Indian analysts, China may resort to territorial grabs through a “major military offensive“ especially in Arunachal Pradesh or Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir and India should respond with “a strategy of quid pro quo“. “Our frontiers with China have been mostly stable for some years now. However, China could assert its territorial claims (especially in the Arunachal sector or Ladakh) by the use of force,” says the report that seeks to outline a foreign and strategic policy for India in the 21st century. “There is the possibility that China might resort to territorial grabs.
