By India Today Web Desk: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi recently said that China and Pakistan are preparing together and if there is a war, it will be against both countries.

In a conversation with army veterans, the Congressman said, “China and Pakistan are together and planning a ‘surprise’ for India.”

In a YouTube video released on Rahul Gandhi’s channel on Sundayhe said, “India’s border situation is linked to the international situation and the border situation is changing… Earlier we had two enemies – China and Pakistan – and our policy was to keep them separate.”

“China and Pakistan have become one and if a war breaks out, it will not be with one but with both. The country will suffer a major setback. India is now very vulnerable,” Gandhi said in the five-minute video.

Rahul Gandhi added that this was the idea behind the foreign policy. “When Rajiv Gandhi ji went there, he also tried to prevent these two (Pakistan and China) from coming together. Before, people used to say that there should be no two-front war. Then came the concept of a two-and-a-half-front war: China, Pakistan and terrorism,” Rahul Gandhi said.

“Now there is a single front because China and Pakistan are together not only militarily but also economically,” Rahul Gandhi said while adding the examples of Gwadar and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

While interacting with army veterans, Gandhi delved into the Indian economy and said, “China’s economic system is progressing very fast while our economic situation has been declining since 2014.”

In the video, Rahul Gandhi is also seen expressing his respect and love for the Indian Army. “I not only have respect for you, I also have love and affection for you. You defend this nation. This nation would not exist without you,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi’s statement comes amid a row over his previous ‘pitai’, where he said Chinese soldiers had beaten Indian troops in Tawang on December 9.
