Chinese Media Critical Of India: Here’s What Happened

A state run Chinese media said that India has “outmanoeuvred” Pakistan by effectively branding it as a “regional pariah” during Goa BRICS-BIMSTEC summit where the country presented itself as a “bright spot”, strengthening its case for the NSG membership and a permanent seat in UNSC. In the article titled ‘India uses BRICS to outmanoeuvre Pakistan’ by state-run Global Times, it said as India invited all countries in the region except Pakistan, it in effect consigned Pakistan to be a regional pariah. Referring to India’s decision not to attend the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation summit to be held in Islamabad after the Uri attack, it said, “The collapse of the SAARC summit presented India a rare opportunity to get rid of any constraints Islamabad may have over the regional group, as the same group would soon gather in Goa in the absence of Pakistan”.
