    If India makes more long-range ICBMs, Beijing may help Pakistan do the same, says Chinese state media

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Chinese media said Pakistan should get the same nuclear privileges as India
    • It also hinted it will help Pakistan build long-range nuclear missiles
    • It said India has 'broken limits' on how many missiles it can make
    NEW DELHI: Beijing wants to communicate the message that if India increases the number of its long-range missiles, it will help "all-weather friend" Pakistan do the same, Chinese media said.

    The context to this comment was India's final test firing of the Agni-IV inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Monday.

    "If the UN Security Council has no objection over this (ICBMs), let it be. The range of Pakistan's nuclear missiles will also see an increase," the state-run Global Times said in an editorial, hinting that China will help Pakistan come on par with India.

    News outfits in China are often used by the government to convey its opinions or to test the waters or to deliver rebukes it can't through diplomatic channels.

    Global Times's editorial further batted for Pakistan saying it should be accorded the same nuclear privileges as India.

    "If the Western countries accept India as a nuclear country and are indifferent to the nuclear race between India and Pakistan, China will not stand out and stick rigidly to those nuclear rules as necessary. At this time, Pakistan should have those privileges in nuclear development that India has," the editorial said.

    On the one hand, the editorial said China isn't bothered by India's testing of missiles that can carry nuclear warheads, but on the other it did sound like Beijing was perturbed by Agni-IV, especially as it came close on the heels of the successful test-firing of Agni-V.

    "...Chinese don't feel India's development has posed any big threat to it. And India wouldn't be considered as China's main rival in the long run," the editorial first says.

    "But it (China) will not sit still if India goes too far...New Delhi understands that it does little good to itself if the Sino-Indian relations are ruined by any geopolitical tricks," the editorial says later.

    Aside from these issues, the editorial alleged that India "has broken the UN's limits" on how many nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles it can produce.

    "The US and some Western countries have also bent the rules on its nuclear plans. New Delhi is no longer satisfied with its nuclear capability and is seeking intercontinental ballistic missiles that can target anywhere in the world and then it can land on an equal footing with the UN Security Council's five permanent members," the editorial said.

    On Monday, India successfully tested - for the final time - its long-range ballistic missile, Agni-IV, which can travel 4,000 kilometres. No long before that, it successfully test-fired Agni-V that has a range of more than 5,000 kilometres and can reach Europe and the northernmost parts of China.

    Why should that bother India? If anything, it would be better as more countries would put Pakistan on their 'to be destroyed at appropriate time' list.

    1. China will help Pakistan develop longer range BMs? Lol they have already helped Pakistan to develop capability to target entire India. Giving them capability to target longer may help Pakistan target China someday, so good going.

    2. India has violated UN regulations? Says China who violates every international norm in the world.

    3. India trying to have same capability as P5? So what? Who said only P5 can have all the capability in the world?

    4. Pakistan should get equal nuclear capability as India? Fine let them pump in money and develop it themselves. Let them starve their entire country to death and invest in nuclear research and weapons.

    Seriously though, why do people compare Pakistan with India? Their population, economy, land mass nothing equals India. So are the Chinese going to help Pakistan increase their population and increase their land mass by gifting them Chinese land once they are able to get Pakistan on par with India in terms of nuclear capacity? Irony is, China seems to be consuming all the land in Pakistan instead.

    P.S: Beware, Chinese Hitler on the rise.

    Good Day!

    They want pak to have ICBM for exact same reason they gave it to NoKo ie to threaten USA as the can't do it directly (you kno peaceful Confucian philosophy)
    And its Chinese who are trying everything to restrict India to the status of Pakistan . you should notice their tagline "strategic balance in South Asia"

    There is no international 'limits' or 'regulations' on the number of nuclear warheads or the range of missiles that can be produced.

    Man, the Chinese are more stupid than I thought. Seriously were they thinking that not having membership in UNSC will stop India from developing an ICBM ?

    PS: I think we should start arming Vietnam. Sell them warships & Brahmos.

    In this case, ICBM capability to Pakistan would be to target US allies like Israel and NATO allies in Europe, and an indirect way of threatening Russia to keep them in check. USA is covered by NoKo ICBMs.

    And we will give the same to Vietnam. Not exactly ICBMs but Intermediate range ballistic missiles would cover all of China.

    If this report is true...

    IMHO
    This is a natural reaction from China...
    They already have enemies....
    They don't want another in us....

    That are saying to other countries that if you let India to come at par with us... We will make Pakistan come at par with India....
    Imagine Pakistan with a 5500-8000 KM Ballistic Missile.... It will be in a position to attack... France.... UK..... Germany... You Name it....


    The ball is now in India's court...

    India should develop an all round credible strategic deterrent against China.... We don't have one now..But we will soon....

    Not only Vietnam, their sore eye is Taiwan. India should grant Taiwan as independent status and should also sell brahmos, agni 1,2&3, and other sophisticated weapons. Plus India should facilitate Taiwan to buy advanced weapons from nations who do not sell them under Chinese pressure by buying them and then handing them over to Taiwan all under cover like s400 systems.

    China needs to be wary that arming Pakistan with either SLBm or MIRV tech or even a longer range missile is actually playing into India's hands.. bcz of such range reaching Israel will make it easier for India..

    Anyway this propaganda piece is basically to paint India as rogue country and also saying that there is not much difference between India and Pakistan so both should not get any special benefits aka scuttling NSG efforts by India and Justifying the increase in investments inside Pakistan to arm her up (like before)
