Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

Remember this timing. It is the lunar new year. China went back post haste to send conscripts back home?

Re: India-US relations: News and Discussions IV

Must be really something for
1. Top US leadership to travel in Covid times.
2. So close to the election to sign the paperwork on
3. What is essentially a sale agreement with GOI being the desperate buyer and so could be easily asked to travel to Washington to sign it.
