'World large enough for both countries'


“I think it is important that everyone scale down the temperature a little bit. It’s not as if there is any substantive reason for hostilities between our countries,” Tharoor said in New York.

He pointed out that as many as 7,000 Indians were studying in China and Indian companies like Infosys were hiring Chinese workers to work for them in  India. “The world is large enough for both India and China to fulfil the needs of their people and to be of service to humanity,” he said.

“If you look at the nuts and bolts of our daily interaction on economics we have Indian companies that have opened branches in Shanghai,”  he added. 

Commenting on the Chinese objections to the PM’s visit to Arunachal, Tharoor said: “Arunachal is an integral part of India and any Indian citizen going there is not the business of any third country”.
