‘China should not ignore India’s CPEC concerns’
BEIJING: India's ambassador to China, Gautam Bambawale, has said Beijing should pay serious attention to New Delhi's concerns about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and not ignore them.
"The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor passes through Indian-claimed territory (POK) and hence violates our territorial integrity. This is amajor problem for us," he told China's state-run 'Global Times' in a hard-hitting interview.
Bambawale seemed to convey a stern message from New Delhi that Beijing could not hope to tap the Indian market and enhance economic ties if it continued to ignore Indian concerns over sovereignty.
"India sells pharmaceuticals and IT products all over the world, but not in China. Why? For 20 years, we have been asking for the Chinese market to be opened for our pharmaceutical and IT products and services," he said, adding, "...To no avail. What do we make of this? We should discuss such issues frankly but also take steps to resolve them."

When Indian pharmacy & IT can't sell its products in China then why India is allowing Chinese goods in Indian market. GOVT OF INDIA must answer this. If Unanswered then people will have to seriously doubt about Indian government intension.

China will not stop violating Indian sovereignty, since China knows that Indian politicians only talk, but, no action.

It is a strategic move by China to gain direct entry into Arabian Sea and make big army base, it is Pakis who are not realizing that Pakistan may end up like T*t as a colony of China.

Chinese are least bothered about any of these. Unless this reflected by our total rejection of Chinese made products, it is not going to have any impact. Common Indians are too shameless. Look at the craze for buying Chinese mobiles whenever there is a sale announced by online stores. Xiaomi has overtaken Samsung sale and Chinese products are on the top here. Whenever there is a conflict, we Indians react harshly online but hardly do anything to reflect our anger in reality. If only all of us en-mass boycott Chinese products imports will come to an end.
