The Intelligence Community of America has said in its annual report that despite the withdrawal of the forces, there is tension on the border between India and China.
In this report released on Tuesday, it has also been said that the possibility of war between India and Pakistan is less, but the crisis between the two countries will deepen, due to which the tension will increase on both sides.
At the same time, the report said that the possibility of taking military action against any provocation of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi is more than before. And violence or any major extremist attack in Kashmir can become a cause of confrontation between the two countries.
In this report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, it has been said that despite the withdrawal of the forces of the two countries on the India-China border, tensions remain.
The report said, “The occupation of the disputed border area of China in May 2020 is the most aggressive action in the last several decades which has resulted in the most fierce clash between the two countries since 1975.”
The US is keeping a close watch on the tension on the border between India and China and has earlier condemned China’s aggressive action.
According to the report a general war between India and Pakistan is unlikely, crises between the two are likely to become more intense, risking an escalatory cycle.
“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India is more likely than in the past to respond with military force to perceived or real Pakistani provocations, and heightened tensions raise the risk of conflict between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, with violent unrest in Kashmir or a militant attack in India being potential flashpoints” Report said.
