The Chinese-owned US-based Duowei (June 30) said that the "dispute over the Galwan River Valley caused tensions between China and India. While high-level officials on both sides are busy cooling the conflict between the two countries, the confrontation between front-line officers and soldiers is also intensifying. The situation of high-level “cooling down” and “confrontation” at the grassroots level is increasingly confusing". It said in the past two months high-level leaders of both sides held numerous meetings and negotiations, which indicated the situation is controllable and stable, "but the continuous conflict between front-line officers and soldiers still "exposed" the difficulties of the negotiations between the two countries". "This confusing state of confrontation, coupled with the rising nationalist sentiment in the two countries, makes the outside world full of doubts about the direction of the two countries". The article said "Facts have proved that neither China nor India is suitable for entering a state of war at this time. The real needs of India’s major economic power and the odds of a war with little chance make the Indian top executives not want to get into a hot war with China. In the face of the heavy pressure of US suppression and national renewal, China does not want to make enemies everywhere. In this situation, how to achieve reconciliation without entering the war has indeed tested the wisdom of the top leaders of the two countries. Both sides should continue to exercise restraint and rationality, be vigilant of the ever-popular populist-nationalist sentiment in the country, and achieve bilateral harmonious relations as much as possible".
