India is The Main Target of China’s New Border Law

It needs no intelligence to decipher that China’s new Border Law has been devised to primarily target India. Beijing already has Pakistan in its pocket and has drawn Nepal and Myanmar into its strategic sphere. With its comparative military and economic might, it is also set to coax Bhutan to join its club.
