The risk of a water war between China and India | World


The China-India tensions could divert from the disputed border area in the Himalayas to the water flowing from the world’s highest mountain range, according to the site. Asia Times.
The danger of conflict comes from China planning to build a large dam on the Yarlung Zangbo River, which flows through Tibet and becomes the Brahmaputra River upon entering India.
Although the Chinese government did not release detailed information, local media said that the Yarlung Zangbo Dam was large-scale and the giant Three Gorges dam on the Yangtze River and generated three times more electricity. This project is mentioned in the 5-year economic development plan (2021-2025) of the Chinese government.
Follow Asia Times, China is in danger of proceeding with the Yarlung Zangbao dam project without consulting or concluding any river water sharing agreement with the downstream Indian or Bangladesh side.

Experts worry that China plans to use the Yarlung Zangbao dam to control the flow, putting pressure on downstream countries, as Beijing did with the Mekong River.

Since the deadly clash in June 2020, in which 20 Indian soldiers and several Chinese soldiers were killed in the disputed border area, Indians have been increasingly frustrated by China’s hydroelectric project. .

Indian media and a series of organizations such as the Center for Policy Studies (based in New Delhi) have warned the Yarlung Zangbo Dam will destroy the livelihoods of people in the downstream area.

Experts warn that if China proceeds with the Yarlung Zangbo dam project and tensions continue to escalate in the disputed border area, it risks leading to conflict like the war in 1962.

On the other hand, despite maintaining friendly relations with China, Bangladesh has also seen waves of people protesting against the Yarlung Zangbao dam project, according to Reuters.

In the recent article on the sheet Global TimesTien Phong, director of the research center at the National Strategy Institute under Tsinghua University in Beijing, said: “Indian opinion on the border issue will be replaced by China with vaccination Covid-19 ”.

“In general, anti-China attitudes in Indian society will continue to increase as some Indian media and politicians continuously exaggerate the Chinese threat,” Tien said. even contradicting that the Indian Prime Minister Modi Narendra’s administration has ignited a wave of public anger towards China.
