China Won't 'Sit With Arms Crossed' If India Sells Missiles To Vietnam: Chinese Media
BEIJING: Any moves by India to
step-up military ties with Vietnam to counter China will create "disturbance" in
the region and Beijing will not "sit with its arms crossed", state media said
today, taking exception to a report that New Delhi plans to sell surface-to-air
Akash missiles to Hanoi.
"If the Indian government genuinely treats its enhancement of military relations with Vietnam as a strategic arrangement or even revenge against Beijing, it will only create disturbances in the region and China will hardly sit with its arms crossed," an op-ed in the Global Times said, highlighting China's concerns over reports of supply of Akash surface-to- air missile system to Vietnam.
The supply of missiles was supposed to be a "normal arms sale, yet was portrayed by the Indian media as a response "to counter the Chinese threat", it said, referring to reports that the missile sale was in response to China blocking India's move to become member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and to block a United Nations ban on Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Masood Azhar.
Global Times, which is part of the ruling Communist Party of
China's official group of publications, has been carrying articles targeting
India almost on daily basis with aggressive and hostile
China does not need to sit with arms crossed. It would be more appropriate if they stand with arms down

@Somnath Ghosh: Isn't China already the main nuclear arms supplier to Pak ? China must realize if it wants to be a leading power in Asia, it can't be done by picking up sides with terror states like Pakistan.
@Somnath Ghosh: You think Chinese leadership are as foolish as modi ji's bhakts?

@Somnath Ghosh: China does not need to worry about Indian missiles, Indian missiles will only talk but not fire :)
anyway, global bully chinese are selling all dangerous weapons to Pak. recently
nuclear submarine, submarine launched missile tech etc.,
India will have to sit with arms crossed, right?
And what will China do? Vietnam is no pushover. As America discovered when the Vietnamese chased them out of their country. So if China thinks that it can frighten either country with its threats, it will only discover that it is the original paper tiger.
Ignore chinkis as they never asked India before giving nuke tech to Pak.
China can't comprehend the concept of free media and free speech. It's hilarious
so, what ndtv? why are you so scared? Are you again trying to be anti-nationalist and targeting an ELECTED PM of India.
Don't sit , keep barking !!
they sell arms to Pakistan and lecture India on arms sales to Vietnam??
China always threatens India because we want to have normal relations. Let India ignore China and keep on moving forward, making all China′s enemies India′s friends. India must teach China a big lesson.
The best lesson we can teach to chinese is avoid buying chinky make products whereever in the globe we are.
China sounds scared!
stop all imports from China. Let's watch what then happens to their economy. We cannot be bullied all the time.
Barking dog seldom bites. Get on to your job.
The Indian media is feee and not controlled by the government like the media are in China!
