Dec. 16 (Indian Express): As Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived for a 3-day India visit, the the representative of the Dalai Lama in New Delhi, Tempa Tsering, said India should deal with China from a position of strength as Beijing only ‘recognises power and respects strength’. Speaking at a seminar on ‘Rethinking India’s Sino-Tibet Policy’, he questioned the massive infrastructure build-up by China on the border and said India should take note of the recent developments in the Tibet region. “If you look at history, China has an insatiable taste for more land and has an ambition to dominate others. There are not the basis to build trust and mutual confidence,” Tsering said, pointing out that China had outstanding border issues with all its neighbours.
The senior aide to the Dalai Lama questioned China’s intention to increase the pace of infrastructure development in Tibet and said that most of it was directed towards increasing military muscle.
