CHINA AGAINST BRAHMOS INITIATIVE
India has expressed desire to install a set of cruise along the Indo-Chinese border, a move that China has expressed concern over. A statement from Chinese officials asks that India opt for initiatives that promote peace and stability rather than fear and war. Indian authorities say that the cruise missiles are part of their joint military program with Russia, one that is intended to strengthen the subcontinent militarily and in terms of infrastructure. While Prime Minister Modi will go to meet President Xi Jinping next month, India remains wary of the China-Pakistan friendship.
