China Does not walk the talk extolling the Wuhan Spirit:

Paper No. 6407           Dated 12-Mar-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The Chinese Prime Minister was recently extolling the Wuhan Spirit and how it has helped in keeping China-India relations on a friendly footing.

Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia visited Pakistan and India - February 2019 with a further follow-up visit to China.

Pakistan Needs to be Designated as ‘Enemy State”

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan has all along in last seven decades openly and unapologetically demonstrated in relation to India all the adversarial policy inclinations that characterise a nation as an ‘Enemy Nation’.
