Indian Professor of ecology, University of Delhi Maharaj Pandit (Pandit Maharaj) have found a way to avoid war between China and India. On the proposal of the researcher reports the South China Morning Post.
A scientist invites countries to turn over all disputed territory in the Himalayas in a nature reserve. It is noted that China and India are currently building roads and other infrastructure, which destroy flora and fauna in the mountains.
“Militarization, changes in the rules of land use, habitat destruction in the Himalayas is likely to lead to the extinction of some species with small population size. Diplomacy is their only hope,” says Pandit in his scientific article in the journal Nature. In addition, the Indian researcher believes that the issue of ecology in the Himalayas is much more important than geopolitics, as the nearby river provides water to over a billion people.
Some experts were skeptical about the possibility of the proposed settlement of the dispute between the warring parties. So, from a strategic point of view of missiles deployed in the highlands of the Himalayas, can target anywhere in the world. It is noted that the deadly skirmish in mid-June, arose precisely from the desire of India to take a more advantageous position on the heights, which was controlled by the Chinese.
On 26 June it was reported that India monitors the concentration of Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh and also deploys additional troops. To the border with China has deployed three Indian infantry divisions, the number of each of them reaches 10-12 thousand soldiers. In addition, the border has deployed tanks and artillery and fighter jets of the Indian air force regularly patrol the area.
Jun 23, India and China agreed to take measures to reduce tension at the disputed border area. It happened after June 16, dozens of soldiers of Indian army died during the clashes. Representatives of new Delhi believe that this happened as a result of efforts of the Chinese side to unilaterally change the status quo. In addition, the Indian media reported 43 victims and the victims are Chinese.
Now the two most populated countries — India and China — the dividing line of actual control, which is not officially fixed and is not demarcated. In this regard, each party understands it differently. There are two controversial plot border areas in the North-Eastern part of Kashmir and in the North of the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
