A 23-member National Defence College (NDC) Bangladesh delegation visited USI on 11 Sep 2018. The Delegation was headed by Maj Gen SM Shafiuddin Ahmed.
Maj Gen BK Sharma, AVSM, SM**(Retd) writes: For China the primary contradiction at this juncture is how to deal with intransigent US. India, on the other hand, is seen more of a major irritant and potential challenger to China’s rise as an Asian power and therefore is ipso facto a secondary contradiction. Hence the need to pacify relations with India till the American challenge is managed.
