Fearing Indo-US Convergence, China Spying on India

An interesting report points out recent attempts by China to undertake extensive espionage on India’s external interests. Chinese unease is being fueled by the growing Indo-US convergence in recent times. China has openly criticized the recently signed Indo-US nuclear agreement and has tried to present itself as the great votary of nuclear non-proliferation. After doing its utmost to cripple the nuclear non-proliferation regime by helping all kinds of regimes in their nuclear weapons programs, China is now worried that India might just get some benefits for being an exemplary nuclear power. China has always tried to restrict India as a regional power and is now concerned about India’s rising global profile. A muscular Indian foreign policy is not in China’s interests and it is with this in mind that China is trying to get into the inner-workings of the Indian foreign policy establishment. The Indian government should formulate a clear-eyed China policy and cease from mollycoddling China. And one hopes that the Indian intelligence agencies are also paying the Chinese back in the same coin.

Well China dosn't have to do much of restricting. In my opinion India is very inactive in South East Asia or the Pacific. Look at Lao where China is building clinics and in Fiji where they are building stadiums. China has extensive scholarships for students from countries like Nepal. India just doesn't have the economic clout that China has.
