Pakistan is becoming a pawn of Chinese policy and could be used by Beijing to enter Afghanistan after the exit of US forces, Indian Air Force Chief RKS Bhadauria said on Tuesday explaining the objectives behind China’s aggression in Ladakh and the continuing standoff at the Line of Actual Control.

“Pakistan is increasingly becoming a pawn in Chinese policy. Under the increased Chin- Pakistan Economic Corridor debt trap, we are going to further witness military dependency,” he said.

Speaking about China’s global aspirations and dominance through military, the IAF chief said Beijing is also eyeing Afghanistan and touched upon the possibility of China using Pakistan to gain entry into the war-torn country after the exit of US forces.

“US exit from Afghanistan has opened options for China in the region, both direct and through Pakistan allowing it entry into Central Asia, a region they have been eyeing for long,” he said.

In the context of China’s dominance in the region, the Indian Air Force chief referred to the possible objectives of the Chinese aggression this year in Ladakh that has led to a standoff and an unprecedented military build on both sides since early May.

“China’s aspirations are on the global front and regional domination is a part of the route. Any serious China-India conflict is not good for China at the global front and does not suit their goal,” Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria said.

He added that an important national security challenge is to understand China, their game plan and deepening and evolving Sino-Pak relationship.


Speaking about the possible objectives for China to engage in a military standoff and change the status quo in Ladakh, he said that it could be military signaling or domination efforts with adequate escalation control.

“Was it deployment and training of their western theatre forces in a war-like scenario where Galwan was an overreach or was it to fine-tune and enhance their military technologies and fill the gapsor it could be planned to start border talks for new positions or was it just a misadventure that got escalated?” he asked.

He also said India needs to maintain effective capabilities to counter any misadventure if the situation so arises.

“Our western border is active since the establishment of Pakistan, now new fronts, areas are also active,” he said.

Speaking about the focus on maximum technology in warfare, he said new drone technology and unmanned aircraft are part of new modern warfare.

“So, military strategy can't be based on erstwhile ground mobilisation future warfare to focus more on technological warfare,” the Air Force chief said.

What enter into Afghanistan?!?! Already have won twice - one against the USSR, and one against the USA.....

Afghanistan is very much within the spheres of influence of Pak! Even the Super Powers have failed to change that reality.....

Pakistan has all the Pashtun areas on lock in Afghanistan. Look at the military situation in Afghanistan, the government is barely holding on.

India has barely any areas on lock in Afghanistan and despite being America's vassal, they couldn't get any help from them when China steamrolled through ladakh LOL

OK.

I read on this vary forum that this chap was sober individual?!?!

I will give him benefit of doubt. There has to be something wrong with the seat of IAF chief. People lose their sense once they are on it. Chap before him with initials of BS has become a meme type character and has perfected the art of talking BS. (how fitting though!)

Where shall I start, there is so much wrong with his utterances. To begin with, he needs geography lesson. China and Afghanistan are actually neighbours with border between them. Also, he is suggesting the Kabul regime of Ghani is not competent enough to have direct dealings with Super power China and needs Pakistan as a intermediator. Would be interesting to see how the kabuli lot see this!
