‘CHINA’S ‘BIG TWO’ HAVE DOMESTIC DISCONTENT AND US-CHINA TENSION
AS BACKDROP: INDIA FINDS MENTION IN US-CHINA EXCHANGE’

Domestic discontent and US-China relations are among the Chinese leadership’s two top concerns. To the discomfiture of China’s leadership both issues surfaced on May 21, 2020, the opening day in Beijing of the ‘Big Two’, as the plenary sessions of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) -- China’s top advisory body -- and the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC) plenum -- China’s version of a parliament -- are known. Xu Zhangrun, former Professor of Law at Beijing’s prestigious Tsinghua University and who has near iconic status among China’s academics and intellectuals, penned an over 2000-character essay advising NPC Deputies on twelve things they should do.

IMPLICATIONS OF THE ONGOING TENSION WITH CHINA ALONG THE LAC
China has accused India of crossing and violating the LAC. On 5 May the Chinese media reports said: On the May 18th, a reporter from the Global Times (in Chinese) learned from sources that the Chinese border guards have strengthened control over the Galwan Valley area and resolutely responded to the infringement of the Sino-Indian line to build facilities. According to relevant sources, since the beginning of May, the Indian side crossed the line into the Chinese territory and entered the Chinese territory, began to construct barriers, and blocked the normal patrol of the Chinese border defense forces.

'CHINA'S VIEW OF TIES WITH THE U.S.-- HINTS OF CONCESSIONS?
High anxiety is apparent in the upper echelons of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership in Beijing at the present state of China-US relations. There is concern that escalating China-US tensions are at a “dangerous” turn and relations could further deteriorate leading even to conflict. Tensions have been sharply accentuated by the Coronavirus pandemic and consequent worldwide rise in anti-China sentiment, which China’s leadership assesses has been fanned by the US.

XI JINPING SHORES POSITION TO FEND-OFF OPPONENTS
CCP General Secretary and Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have been badly bruised by public criticism, which was accentuated by the initial mishandling of the Coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan. After an extended hiatus, which includes Xi Jinping’s unexplained disappearance from public view at the peak of the crisis between January 29 and February 10, Xi Jinping is now demonstrating his political authority and influence to shore his position and fend-off opponents.
