    "We encourage India and China to engage in direct dialogue aimed at reducing tensions and free of any coercive aspects," Gary Ross, a defence department spokesman told PTI.

    Over the past week, the US state department too have been making similar statements, but Pentagon has sought direct dialogue between India and China on reducing tension "free of any coercive aspects".

    Notably, in recent past few years, almost all the Chinese neighbours have been accusing Beijing of coercive tactics to settle border disputes.

    The month-long India-China border standoff in the Sikkim sector is seen as part of same Chinese coercive tactics to change the status quo. India has taken a strong stand against such a Chinese move.

    National security advisor Ajit Doval will head to Beijing to attend a meeting of BRICS later this month. During his visit, Doval is expected to talk with his Chinese counterpart on this issue.

    Responding to questions, the Pentagon refused to take sides on the issue. :enjoy::D

    "We refer you to the governments of India and China for further information. We encourage India and China to engage in direct dialogue aimed at reducing tensions. We are not going to speculate on such matters," Ross said when asked if the Pentagon fears escalation of tension between India and China. :enjoy::lol:





    Early this week, a top Pentagon commander told lawmakers that China is exploiting its economic leverage as a way to its regional political objectives.

    "The Chinese have shown their willingness to exploit their economic leverage as a way to advance their regional political objectives. As China's military modernization continues, the United States and its allies and partners will continue to be challenged to balance China's influence," General Paul Selva, USAF, said in written response to questions to the Senate Armed Services Committee for his nominee for reconfirmation as vice-chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.




    Selva said deterring war is an exercise in influencing China's decision calculus, making diplomacy preferable to conflict and managing crises in such a manner that they do not unintentionally escalate.




    "To do this, the joint force will engage with the Chinese military within Congressionally mandated limits, build alliance capacity through close cooperation, and uphold international law through appropriate operations," he said in written response to the questions.

    So, US considers too China as a global power and world leading leader.

    If India was and still is hoping for tea and sympathy from the US for its weeks-long territorial standoff with China in Doklam, it was and is dreaming in for a rude surprise. :enjoy::lol:

    What we say in URDU " China k agey USA ki bhi nahi chalthi" :enjoy::china::pakistan::cheers::cheesy::smitten:

    Over the past week, the US State Department too have been making similar statements, but Pentagon has sought direct dialogue between India and China on reducing tension "free of any coercive aspects". :enjoy::D

    Only idiots will think that india will expect US to take sides.
    When we dont side with US in their battles, rather historically we have sided with russia, so why will US take side of india all of a sudden. Its more than fair that they take a neutral stand.

    We dont need anybody to show china its place.

    Stop masturbating on hopeless articles.

    The reason India has high price is because India is not for sale.
