    China ready to cede land for part of Arunachal Pradesh?

    HIGHLIGHTS




      • The suggestion of an exchange of land with Tawang being ceded by India came from Dai Bingguo
      • Dai Bingguo headed the special representative dialogue with India for over a decade until his retirement in 2013
      • Dai is still regarded close to Chinese rulers, and his voice is taken seriously in the diplomatic community
    BEIJING: An exchange of land, with the politically and strategically sensitive Tawang tract in Arunachal Pradesh being ceded by India, could pave the way for a settlement of the India-China boundary dispute, China's former pointsman for India Dai Bingguo has said.

    The suggestion came in an interview given by the former Chinese diplomat and high-ranking communist cadre to a Beijing-based publication. Dai Bingguo headed the special representative dialogue with India for over a decade until his retirement in 2013.

    Though the exchange of Tawang is far from being a simple affair given the presence of the Tawang monastery, which commands a special place in Tibetan Buddhism and is highly regarded by Buddhists in India as well, Dai's remarks are significant as they may not be completely without official sanction.

    Dai is still regarded close to Chinese rulers, and his voice is taken seriously in the diplomatic community. He is unlikely to make sensitive comments in an interview unless it has been cleared by top leaders of the Communist Party, sources said.

    "The major reason the boundary question persists is that China's reasonable requests have not been met," Dai said in the interview, adding, "If the Indian side takes care of China's concerns on the eastern section of the border, the Chinese side will respond accordingly and address India's concerns elsewhere."

    Dai Bingguo has written on similar lines in his book which came out last year. China analyst Shrikant Kondapalli said the Chinese interest in the eastern sector had been elevated since 2005, when both countries signed the Political Parameters and Guiding Principles. China has eyed the Tawang tract, describing it as Southern Tibet, because the 15th century Dalai Lama was born there. Interestingly, China withdrew from that area after the 1962 war with India. Control of Tawang will consolidate China's hold over the centres of Tibetan Buddhism.http://m.timesofindia.com/india/chi...of-arunachal-pradesh/articleshow/57438182.cms

    If the Chinese side takes care of world's concern to withdraw from occupation of Independent Tibet, Independent Uighur, Independent Inner Mongolia, Independent Manchuria and SCS islands, Indian side will respond accordingly and address China's concern elsewhere :D

    trading Akshai chin land for the buddhist land?

    is it related to UIGHUR ISIS threat?

    probably small part of land..

    otherwise CPEC will come within the range

    I have a better offer.

    Forget Arunachal Pradesh.

    India gives up its claim on all of Aksai Chin, in return China gives India Kailash-Mansarovar!

    Best is if China vacates aksai chin, pok which was ceded to them by Pakistan cutting them completely from Pakistan , and India getting connected to Afghanistan, vacating Sikkim, and stopping sales of weapons to Pakistan and denuclerizing Pakistan, we are ready to hand over Tawang.:biggthumpup::biggthumpup::biggthumpup:

    Lets just maintain status cuo. There is no ceding happening from Indian side, we have already accommodated many tibetians on our land.

    Read the article people. There is no mention of China ceding Aksai Chin to India. There's only a proposal to address our concerns "elsewhere" in exchange for Tawang district -

    [​IMG]

    I'm sorry but no deal! We'd have to be stupid on epic proportions to even consider this. First of all the guy making these proposals isn't even part of the CPC...secondly, there is no clear indication of what concerns of ours that China is ready to address. Return of Aksai Chin is of no real value to us (plus I honestly don't believe for 1 second that China is ready to give up Aksai Chin) - even if we get it, the regional dynamics simply won't change. There will still be a land-link between Pak & China (through PoK/GB) and that's enough to trouble India for decades to come.

    Look at a map. Even if China cedes Aksai Chin AND evacuates Shaksgam Valley region (ceded to China by Pak), still there will be a connection between China & Pak through Gilgit with full access to the Karakorum Highway. And no, still India won't have any connection to Afghanistan. In short, nothing will change even if China cedes both Aksai Chin & Shaksgam Valley to India. Only way to change the regional dynamic is to go in and militarily capture the whole of PoK, including Gilgit-Baltistan and 'Azad' Kashmir sliver.

    Here's the reality check though: China won't cede anything. At most they'll probably agree to prosecute Masood Azhar or something like that.

    Ceding Tawang is a stupid idea and totally out of the question. I'll buy a gun & personally shoot any Indian official who considers going ahead with it.

    Idiot Nehru once told in parliament that not even a single blade of grass grows in aksai chin which China took over during 1962 war. To which Atal Bihari Vajpayee replied that not even a single hair grows on your head so give it to China.:lol::lol:

    It will be suicidel for both NDA & UPA to even consider this....
    But it's India. So it can't be completely ruled out... If it's happend, then most people may blame the government for a week, a month or so... But they will forget it soon after. I don't trust our own people and parties because of recent history. But I really hope that the future is different, in a good way...

    It is a part of strategy for Chinese to create a problem or dispute out of nothing and then bargain to get something out of nothing. China has no claim anywhere except Aksai Chin and even in that its territory ends 20kms west of the highway they have constructed across Aksai Chin. They have taken possession of much larger area in 1962 as a bargaining chip.

    We are neither property dealers, nor Pakistan, we don't make deals with our land, that too over some baseless promises.
