as per the highly irritated chinese, Indian delivery systems are already capable of 8-10,000 KM plus.
Unable to quote sources now but I have at times seen peeved comments by chinese guys on the net, on and off.
They generally get agitated whenever India goes in for long range tests.
Apparently the hans do not like their major population centers falling well within the strike range of India's increasingly sophisticated delivery systems which they well know serves to practically counter the chinese threat in retaining a very credible second strike capability, even more so now with the second strike triad becoming effective, maybe in the short to medium term.
china's middle kingdom syndrome is apparent in her imperious behavior with neighbors and other countries, all of whom she looks down upon.
A poor and impoverished upstart like India dare not challenge her hegemony or disrespectfully refuse to participate in the OBOR/BRI schemes that has been concocted to raise the han esteem worldwide.
with Modi, that diffidence and servility that characterized the congi relationship with the hans is distinctly missing, adding further to the han discomfort.
The two faced hans openly work against India in international fora and at the same time duplicitously try to maintain a "friendly" public relationship with Modi.
One wonders what these two guys Modi and xi actually talk about when they meet.
