Chinese media complaint: Comments by Bipin Rawat can shatter 'delicate trust'
BEIJING, Jan 17 (Agencies): Chinese media run by the country's ruling Communist Party returned to the rhetoric act against India on Wednesday. They published editorials warning India of grave consequences to belligerent comments by the Indian Army leadership, including General Bipin Rawat. Predictably, the script of the editorials was pretty much what the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson had said a couple of days ago. Editorials such as these are watched closely as they are tools of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC) and government, and offer insight into policy priorities and insecurities. This round of warnings and foreboding from the mouthpiece media outlets has come in response to statements by General Rawat on the situation in Doklam and India's preparedness to go toe-to-toe wi...

Pak PM backs Hafiz Saeed, ex-US diplomat calls it 'alarming'
WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Agencies): A former United States diplomat has described Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's statement to support 2008 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed as “alarming.” “Very alarming statement by Pakistan PM because Hafiz Saeed is a terrorist,” said Zalmay Khalilzad, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations. In an interview to a television channel on Tuesday, Pakistan PM openly supported Saeed, the Jamaat-ud Dawa chief and Lashkar-e-Toiba co-founder.

Supporting India's fight against terrorism, Khalilzad said, "Time has come for the world to cooperate and India needs to take a leading role with us in orchestrating a glo...

BEIJING, Jan 15 (Agencies): China today hit out at Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat for calling Doklam a disputed territory and said that his “unconstructive” comments were not helpful for maintaining peace at the borders.

The Chinese reaction came following comments by Gen Rawat two days ago that India needed to shift focus from its border with Pakistan to that of China and spoke of pressure being exerted by Beijing along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). “Last year, India-China relations hav...

Army chief's 'unconstructive' comments will hurt tranquility in border areas: China
Beijing, Jan 15 (Agencies): China on Sunday hit out at Army Chief General Bipin Rawat for calling Doklam a disputed territory and said that his 'unconstructive' comments were not helpful for maintaining peace at the borders.

False alert of incoming missile rattles Hawaii
Hawaii, Jan 14 (Agencies): Hawaii officials confirmed a cell phone alert warning of an incoming ballistic missile was a "false alarm" Saturday, but not before the ominous message unnerved residents and stirred confusion across the US state.
