China’s media warns India not to ‘meddle’ as their defence minister visits Nepal, Sri Lanka

As China’s Defence Minister and People’s Liberation Army General Chang Wanquan makes a rare visit to Sri Lanka and Nepal this week, Chinese state media warned India that Beijing will “fight back” if Delhi interferes into China’s relations with South Asian countries.
A hard-hitting commentary published Tuesday in the Global Times, a Communist Party-run tabloid published by the official People’s Daily, said India was “treating South Asia and the Indian Ocean as its backyard with a hard-line manner.”
“China hopes India can understand the pursuit of China and regional countries for common development, and be part of it. However, New Delhi doesn’t share this thinking, instead seeking to balance China. If such tendencies in India continue, China will have to fight back, because its core interests will have been violated. This is not what we hope for, but the ball is in India’s court,” the commentary said.
