`China will not benefit from confrontation with India`
New Delhi: Advising China to act responsibly, former US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg on Thursday said Beijing should understand that it will not benefit from confrontation with its neighbours, like India and Japan.
He said Chinese leadership should introspect on their future strategy and the country should act responsibly given its huge economic and military capabilities.
"I don`t know what the Chinese leadership is up to... confronting India and Japan, especially when they have been trying to build strong bilateral relations...The Chinese leadership must understand, it will not benefit them in the long run. The leadership must introspect on their future strategies," Steinberg told.
He was responding to questions on how he viewed the recent Chinese provocations with India in Ladakh and with Japan in South China Sea.
He said China should make it clear what their long time intentions are and it should assure its neighbours about that.
Steinberg, presently the Dean of the Maxwell School, Syracuse University and University Professor of Social Science, International Affairs and Law, served as Deputy Secretary of State, and acted as the principal Deputy to Secretary Hillary Clinton.
He also served as Deputy National Security Advisor to former US President Clinton from 1996 to 2000.
