India Deploys Air Defense Systems Along China Border As Third Round Of De-Escalation Talks Take Place

India recently deployed its Akash Air Defence System in the Ladakh region along the India-China border.

Akash is an advanced, quick-reaction, surface-to-air missiles with a range of 30 km.

The deployment of Akash Air Defence System comes after China reportedly increased its fighter jets and helicopter activities along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), de facto border of India and China, the Hindustan Times reported.

“As part of the ongoing build-up in the sector, the air defence systems of both Indian Army and the Indian Air Force have been deployed in the sector to prevent any misadventure by the Chinese Air Force fighter jets or the People’s Liberation Army choppers there,” confirmed government sources to an Indian news agency.

In addition, the Indian Air Force reportedly installed the Israeli SPYDER short- and medium-range air defense system in the same area to assist the Akash, as per anonymous sources.

This took place as Indian and Chinese military delegates met for the third time in an attempt to defuse tensions in the Chushul in Leh district, sources said.

“This time the talks will be held in Chushul on the Indian side. The last two meetings were held in Moldo on the Chinese side,” according to Business Insider’s sources.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address the nation on the standoff with China. His address will come two days after his monthly Mann ki Baat radio programme, during which he had reiterated the country’s commitment to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

A day after Indian banned 59 Chinese mobile apps, TikTok said it is in the process of complying with the government’s order on blocking of the app, and asserted that it has not shared information of Indian users with any foreign government, including that of China. China, too, reacted while saying it was “verifying the situation”.

Reacting to New Delhi’s ban on the Chinese apps, Beijing today said it was “strongly concerned and was verifying the situation”, Reuters reported.

China reportedly has tank and heavy artillery units there, based on satellite images.

The English-language daily described “a prolonged standoff” while warning the PLA was prepared for any provocation, including with tanks and fighter jets.

“As senior Indian military officers are expecting a prolonged standoff in the China-India border region with the US reportedly voicing support for India, the Chinese military is demonstrating high military readiness on all fronts, as the intensive, simultaneous military exercises in the South China Sea, near Taiwan island and near the China-India border show India’s wishful thinking of taking advantage of US support is merely an illusion, Chinese analysts said Sunday,” Global Times reported.

    India needs to shut the fuck up and deescalate as China has moved a whole corps out of Xinjiang and activated 14 airbases as far Urumqi.

    • Liberal guy

      So now what in the near future?

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Nothing will happen, your MI and RAW are well aware of the consequences. Modi is dumb uneducated cunt owned by the Jews and licking Brit and Americunt arse, but the Indian military knows its limitations. There is ZERO chance of a shooting war. The Chinese will be in Delhi in a week if that happens.

        • Liberal guy

          I really hope there is no war or the results will be what u have described already

          • Ivan Freely

            Relax. This kind of stand off isn’t rare. Eventually cooler heads will prevail and they’re both back to the Line of Actual Control…again. LOL

          • Superfly

            China just bitch slaps India regularly lol

          • Liberal guy

            Most likely

    • occupybacon

      In short China is set to win but on long term there is a chance for them to lose more than India. That regions have very little economic importance but that conflict could trigger a global backlash against the Chinese companies world-wide. India on the other hand doesn’t have much to lose.

      • Lone Ranger

        Sounds exactly whats happening to the U.S.
        Now even the EU declared U.S. citizens in the EU persona non grata, ouch…

        • Zionism = EVIL

          I don’t think so, the Chinese are quite well liked around the globe, they mind their own business and are not arrogant. They make good quality consumer goods that everyone wants,. even the loudmouth dumbass Americunts can’t live without Chinese products, even the Americunt flags are made in China. 95% of all products in Walmart or Home Depot are MADE IN CHINA, India can’t even produce a toaster.

          • Lone Ranger

            Thats true.
            Most of Silicon Valley and Hollywood is also Chinese run nowdays.
            Even the Panama Canal.

          • Rafik Chauhan

            china already started to lose busniess already after this virus came up. Company slowly one by one is closing and moving either to indonesia malaysia india or vietnam. African countires also leaving china slowly. China is on the verge of collapse like US. bioth are hypcocrite

            Indians consumers are the biggest winners from China trade.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Everyone on the planet is benefiting from Chinese manufacturing. China produces over 80% of world’s consumer electronics and 60% value added manufactured products. The stupid dumbass Americunts and Eurotrash produce third rate weapons and wars for Jews, and that is about it.

            Seriously, get real. US is pathetic with 200 million unemployed and living like a dog, while 1% Jew cunts and WASP arseholes rip off everyone else, why do think the streets are on fire?

            Lol, don’t believe all your wishes as facts, the greatest disapointments originate in the greatest expectations.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            My boy, read some economic facts. People don’t riot in the streets unless they are starving. You are well intentioned kid, but kiss too much Americunt arse.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c19a96bded58ab0eb211248d2d03f1c630ba9cf9c8aebf72dbcec6befde1025.jpg

          • occupybacon

            Those riots have less victims than daily life in south Chicago. It’s some people that got bored during quarantine, the vast majority is business like usual, btw where do you get that 200 million unemployment rate, any link?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Do I have to do all the work. Learn to google and read major economic magazine cover stories.You kids are ignorant because you arsekissing dumbasses are intellectually lazy due to eating swine.

            The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released unemployment data on Friday showing that the U.S. economy lost over 41.2 million jobs in March and April with the unemployment rate spiking to 17.7percent, the worst since the Great Depression. The report reinforceswhat many have already seen up close, which is the continuing economiccarnage on the American economy caused by thecoronavirus. Here’s thescary part, as shocking as the data is, reality is much worse because ofquirks in the BLS methodology as the real number of unemployed, underemployed and drop out workers now exceeds over 200 million.

            If 174.7 percent unemployment is a “portrait of devastation,” as the New York Times referred to it, then the real figure, which is closer to 25%, is a glimpse of economic cataclysm.

          • occupybacon

            So it is 174% or 25%? I have friends and relatives there and we talk almost weekly, also I work for US company and nobody is aware of such doom you are talking about. All I got is a 15% cut of my wage.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        In theory your comment is sound, but no ones gives a shit about India, everyone wants a cheap Chinese TV and a smart phone and there are no other alternatives..

        • occupybacon

          It’s just a theory.

      • Jimmy Jim

        GAS THE JEWS & CURRY FARTS!

    • Rafik Chauhan

      you are dumb and ignorant. and not aware of chines disadvantage in aksai chin. China knows very well they tried in 1967 and so on till now. but failed. China is also aware any war with india will create long war with no ending. and this time any war acquire china knows indian army will not stop till they take back all of aksai chin and Nefa area. even if they have to die in hundred of thousand . already tibet people has formed big militry wing and are on the border ready to reach lhasa. and china is well aware of that. China is pussy and backstabber they did in 1962 and 1967 and until now face to face war china will buries lott of soldier in the grave.

      • cechas vodobenikov

        u and bacon r insecure and ignorant—a war would be quickly negotiated –China is in a superior position economically and military. a protracted war would induce Pakistan to join w China—Kashmir would become a nightmare for India…Tibet has been populated w a majority Han Chinese—India exports far more to china than the reverse; a war would be less beneficial to India than china….there will no war …in the recent skirmishes most died from hypothermia when they fell into the icy lake

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Look, I post FACTS based on a life time of military experience, India is a dirt poor country and its poor soldiers are physically weak and have no mountain gear, kevlar or even basic battlefield kit and they face two of the world’s most combat tested militaries the PLA and the Pakistanis. Indians should focus on feeding their people, stop wasting money on useless weapons and invest in basic sanitation. Most of the stupid fuckers literally froze to death and they don’t even have thermal underwear. Still wear WW2 helmets.

      • Superfly

        You write garbage like a child.

    • Ashok Varma

      Our Congress politicians are also cautioning Modi against irresponsible rhetoric.

  • cechas vodobenikov

    India is considered to possess a formidable military; china’s is considered to be more formidable—hopefully this will escalate… such a conflict serves neither side. Suspect this will be resolved diplomatically

    • igybundy

      So who have the chinese defeated militarey other than the tibetians?

      • cechas vodobenikov

        Chinese r not uncivilized like the anglosphere–they do not attack weak defenseless nations–in the amerikan war against Korea, Chinese troops humiliated the USA, causing the US to retreat from the Yalu River all the way to the 38th parallel —this is when the amerikans begged for a truce fearing that they would lose all of Korea—this was 7 decades ago —today China has a large military and advanced weapons—in the most recent war games—China/Russia #1/#2—USA # 35
        in international competitions among special forces–Russia generally #1, China in the top 4-5…US behind small nations, Serbia, France, etc

      • Ivan Freely

        IIRC, the Chinese did fight against the Indians back in ’62 and managed to push into India’s territory. A ceasefire was made and Chinese forces withdrew back to the Line of Actual Control.

        • Ashok Varma

          Nehru was a wise man and calmed the situation down very fast.

      • Superfly

        US in Korea and Vietnam.

    • Assad must stay

      i read on facebook an article says india mistook jupiter and venus and thought they were chinese spy drones lol

  • Lone Ranger

    U.S. is playing India and China against eachother.
    Hopefully they are smart enough to realize that.

    • Ashok Varma

      We have severe economic challenges and no sensible Indians wants conflict with either China or Pakistan. The US and UK along with the Zionists are pushing weapons and sowing hate and fear on the sub-continent. Indians reject the US rogue agenda.

  • Raptar Driver

    Maybe somebody is pushing a de-population agenda on the two most populous countries

    • Ashok Varma

      Yes the racist European and US want a major conflict in Asia, they will be disappointed as China and India are mature cultures and reject conflict.

      • Raptar Driver

        I would like to think that you are correct and that they are too mature for this however greed is a powerful motivator and because of the population, their resources are running thin. This is a formula for war
