Menon in a quagmire

May 07 2013

Our National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon is handling the territorial tiff with China. Menon was born in Lhasa in Tibet, where his father had been appointed the counsel general there. Menon himself has been India’s ambassador to China. That is why he has an excellent command over Chinese language. The foreign ministry’s logic was that since only 22 Chinese are manning the border, they are not there to attack. Menon has confirmed information that between April 30 and May 4, Chinese forces will withdraw and, thus, the matter should be kept low-key. The media and the Opposition should not give it too much importance because at present, China is being controlled by hardliners who are quick to react. But seeing China’s current demeanour, Menon himself is shocked.
