I dont know how long would it take for India to know relations with China is not working. They had denied visa to defense personal who was planned to come to their country. In no ambiguous terms we should ask them what are they doing in Pakistan and how far are they planning support Pakistani nuclear ambitions so that we could help Vietnam in the same respects.
