Salman Khurshid, Indian foreign minister, will visit Beijing next month in spite of mounting criticism from opposition parties over New Delhi’s conciliatory response to a Chinese military incursion across the disputed Himalayan border.

“We can’t destroy years of investment in our relationship because something goes wrong,” Mr Khurshid told a meeting of business leaders in New Delhi on Thursday. He said it was “absurd” to suggest that the current stand-off with Beijing over a Chinese patrol encamped in Ladakh for the past 10 days would derail the friendship.

Indian politicians and the media, however, have become increasingly agitated about what they see as an attempt by China’s new leaders to test the will of their weaker southern neighbour in an area that was engulfed in the border war launched by China in 1962.

“People are really angry,” said Prakash Javadekar, spokesman for the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata party, the main opposition to the governing coalition led by the Congress party. “The issue of the incursion of China in Ladakh is a serious issue and government is not taking it that seriously.”

Indian newspapers and television stations reported that China had sent helicopters across the disputed Line of Actual Control, while India had deployed unmanned drones to monitor the contested camp but otherwise kept its response low-key. “India sends out doves, China sends in chopper,” said the main front-page headline of the Hindustan Times on Thursday.

India has asked at two meetings on the ground and in telephone conversations for China to return to the status quo, but China has denied crossing the line at all and says it is conducting normal patrols.

Li Keqiang, China’s new premier, is due to visit India and Pakistan next month after Mr Khurshid’s visit to Beijing on May 9. New Delhi has so far refrained from strident criticism of Beijing over the border row, although Ranjan Mathai, Indian foreign secretary, did express “the concerns of the government of India” to Chinese ambassador Wei Wei last week.

印度外交部长萨尔曼?库尔希德(Salman Khurshid,见右图)将于下月访问中国,尽管反对党日益严厉地批评政府对中国军队越过有争议的喜马拉雅边境作出和缓回应。

库尔希德周四在一个商界领袖会议上说:“我们不能因为出了点状况,就破坏对两国关系的多年投入。”他表示,有一种说法是“荒唐的”,那就是一支中国巡逻小分队过去10天在拉达克(Ladakh)地区扎营所引发的两国对峙,会让两国关系脱轨。

然而,印度政界人士和媒体正变得越来越愤怒,他们认为,在一个曾在1962年被卷入中国发动的边境战争的地区,中国新领导人正企图测试其较弱的南方邻国的意志。

以国大党(Congress party)为首的印度执政联盟的主要反对党——印度人民党(Bharatiya Janata party)发言人普拉卡什?雅瓦德卡尔(Prakash Javadekar)说,“人们非常愤怒,中国在达拉克地区的越境入侵问题很严重,但政府没有严肃对待这个问题。”

印度报纸和电视台报道,中国出动直升机越过有争议的实际控制线(Line of Actual Control),而印度只是部署无人机监视有争议的营地,除此之外保持低调回应。《印度时报》(Hindustan Times)周四的头版头条标题称:“印度放飞鸽子,中国出动直升机”。

在两次现场会议和电话交谈中,印度都要求中国恢复原状,但中国否认越过实际控制线,表示只是在开展正常巡逻。

库尔希德5月9日访问中国之后,中国新任总理李克强将于下月访问印度和巴基斯坦。在这起边境纠纷中,印度方面迄今避免对中国发出尖锐批评,尽管印度外交部常务次长兰詹?马塔伊(Ranjan Mathai)上周对中国驻印度大使魏苇表达了“印度政府的关切”。
