According to a report in the Print, Russia has agreed to speed up the manufacturing of certain missiles and bombs after Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh paid a visit to Moscow. This comes across as a clear sign that Russia has sided with India in the ongoing clash between India and China.
Reportedly, the Russians have also turned down the request of China to not sell arms to India. The Indian and Chinese military are amid an eight-week ongoing clash along the line of actual control in the Galwan valley. On Monday, there were reports that both the troops have withdrawn in order to create a buffer zone. The move of Russia to side with India comes after the United States openly supported India in its conflict with China.
The United States Navy has deployed two aircraft carriers in the South China sea amid the ongoing tensions. Saying that no one in China is safe from the Chinese aggression, the White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said,
“The message is clear. We are not going to stand by and let China or anyone else take the reins in terms of being the most powerful, dominant force, whether it’s in that region or over here. Our military might stand strong and will continue to stand strong, whether it’s in relation to a conflict between India and China or anywhere else.”
Trump Drops A Hint
Meadows further added that the mission of the United States is to make sure that the world knows that the country still has the preeminent fighting force in the world. He further said,
“We’re also going to look at a number of issues as it relates to immigration. We’re going to look at a number of issues as it relates to prescription drug prices and we’re going to get them done when Congress couldn’t get them done.”
When asked about the conflict, the United States President said,
“I’ll give you a couple of hints, all right. So, a sneak preview here. We’re going to be looking at how we make sure that China is addressed, how we bring manufacturing back from overseas to make sure the American worker is supported.”
