- China has accepted that the drone shot down by Pakistan in PoK is of Chinese origin, quashing Pakistan’s claim that it was an Indian drone.
- Why has China done so?
- No country readily accepts that its drones are so weak that someone has managed to shoot one down.
Is this a tactical shift in foreign policy by China to integrate South Asian nations and further its one belt initiative?
Can we expect China and even Russia to start playing a greater direct role from now on in India-Pakistan affairs?
