A bilateral bill in the US Congress has condemned China’s aggressive attitude towards India. The bill has now become law because of Trump’s rejection of the veto. The House rejected Trump’s veto of the 7 40,740 billion U.S. defense policy bill. The bill condemns, among other things, the steps taken by the Chinese government along the Line of Actual Control.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was enacted on Friday. It also has a proposal to appeal to the Chinese government to stop military strikes against India on the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
President Donald Trump vetoed the bill on December 23rd. However, the bill has the support of both Democratic and Republican lawmakers. At the same time, President Trump said that it contains such provisions, which pose a threat to national security. It was a shock to him in the last days of the Trump administration.
Raja Krishnamurthy, an Indian-American lawmaker, said, “Today, on the eve of the New Year, Parliament passed the National Security Approval Act in Parliament.” It contains some points of my proposal that China be asked to stop its aggressive attitude towards India and the Indo-Pacific region.
The stalemate over the Line of Equal Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh has continued between China and India since May last year. A number of steps have been taken between the two countries to end the stalemate, but so far no neutral results have been announced.
Krishnamurthy said, “China’s military attack on India along the Line of Actual Control is not acceptable or such a position is unacceptable anywhere.
A serious concern has been expressed in the ‘National Defense Approval Act’ about China’s continued aggressive attitude towards India on the border. The NDAA said China “must work to reduce tensions with India through existing diplomatic arrangements and refrain from forcibly resolving the dispute.”
