Beijing:- China’s official newspaper Global Times has been badly agitated amid speculation about talks over trade agreements in India and Taiwan. Global Times has threatened that India’s politicians may not refrain from playing the Taiwan card, so India may incur serious economic losses.
“After several months of provocation on the border, economic and business front, India has recently indicated that it is going to take more threats on the Taiwan card,” Global Times wrote in its editorial. India is going to hold trade talks with Taiwan. Chinese experts believe that the Taiwan card will challenge China’s target line and India should have the knowledge that it will have serious consequences. ‘
“India’s leaders want to take the enemy from China with malicious intent”
WTO Chinese expert Huo Jianguo said that according to the rules, India cannot enter into a separate agreement with Taiwan. But the leaders of India want to take more enemies from China with malicious intent. He said India is trying to take advantage of the border by putting pressure on China through this. That is why the US is going to have a military drill. The Chinese expert said that India will suffer a major loss by playing the Taiwan card and ignoring China’s main interests.
Earlier, the Chinese Foreign Ministry had threatened India before the formal talks began. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on India’s trade deal with Taiwan that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an integral part of China. The one-China theory has been recognized by all countries in the world, including India. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said China firmly opposes the official exchange of any country with the Taiwan islands. Especially countries that have diplomatic relations with China. We will look into the issues relating to it in a judicious and appropriate manner.
Taiwan seeks trade deal with India
It was recently reported that India and Taiwan could start formal talks on trade deals amid deteriorating relations with China. Taiwan wants to negotiate a trade deal with India for many years but the Government of India has been reluctant to do so. This is because India did not want to take China’s displeasure. But for the past few months, there have been elements within the government that are in favor of a trade deal with Taiwan.
Who will benefit from the trade deal
This month, the Government of India had approved proposals of several companies to make smartphones. These include Taiwan’s Foxconn Technology Group, Vistron Group, and Pegatron Corp. The Commerce Ministry spokesperson did not immediately comment on the matter. Taiwan’s top trade negotiator John Deng also did not respond to the email. If direct trade talks with India begin, it will be a big win for Taiwan. Due to pressure from China, it has struggled to start a trade deal with any major country.
