Once upon a time, when policymakers goofed (it happens, they're human), u'd see an acknowledgement of error w/ a promise to fix it/learn – maybe even a resignation. Now, many govts hv decided any such admission is weakness, so it's a no-no. Instead: - ignore error - blame others

Modi in 2014: "clarification of Line of Actual Control would greatly contribute to our efforts to maintain peace and tranquility and requested President Xi to resume the stalled process of clarifying the LAC. We should also seek an early settlement of the boundary question" 2/

On -, there's been a fair bit of talk re how the boundary is undemarcated & how clarification of the Line of Actual Control could help. If you're trying to understand what that all means & where that stands, read 's Choices 1/

Ha ha! I actually like all the twists, turns & adaptations Indian food has taken -- & even how ingredients have found their way into non-"Indian" dishes (e.g. I'm fascinated, by how Brits use them in even Welsh dishes in Great British Bake Off). So I'm not much of a purist 😬

as Suhasini pointed out, PRC MFA has given a statement that did seem to up the ante. Interestingly, however, it was not in English and not put on their website. Their public approach to this (thus far) has been nothing like it was during Doklam.

I don't think the world needs convincing re China's assertiveness. Chinese side didn't stay quiet during Doklam, while Indian side did (different matter they went overboard after). That didn't help PRC case globally. GoI needs to figure out comm aspect, but it can't take priority
