Defense Secretary Shekhar Dutt sounded upbeat ahead of Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to India saying that defense relationship between the two nations “normal” while the communist parties wanted China to initiate confidence-building measures.

Dutt cited “confidence-building measures (CBMs)” and “healthy interaction” between the local commanders to say that the situation along the India-China Line of Actual Control (LAC) “is as normal as it can be” and there is no need for “alarm.”

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) said that “China should take the initiative in creating an atmosphere for the solution of some of the problems in our relations.” Specifically, they wanted China to prevent recurrent flooding in the north-east region, including the Brahmaputra river, as well as avoid flash floods in Himachal Pradesh due to break-up of artificial lakes in Tibet.

It is interesting that the communist party is only talking about one issue, though important, is not the most important issue that can be addressed. The party is not doing well by India by focusing on the least complicated issue for which China has already accepted responsibility.
