Deep Throat: Daring the Dragon - Outlook India



9 DECEMBER 2016



India is pushing its diplomatic boundaries with China. Last month, the Indian government allowed US Ambassador to India, Richard Verma, to visit Tawang, which China claims as “disputed” territory. While China protested, India recently allowed Urgyen Trinley Dorje, the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, to visit Arunachal Pradesh and address a public gathering at Mon. The Karmapa’s visit was cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS). And it couldn’t have been more “official” as minister of state for Home Kiren Rijiju tweeted his pictures with the Karmapa, who fled hina 17 years ago. Even as China urged India not to “complicate the boundary dispute”, India has cleared Dalai Lama’s visit to the eastern border state in March 2017.
