Chinese politicians address a threatening phrase to Nancy Pelosi that their country used before its war against India 60 years ago

Al-Marsad newspaper: Chinese analysts told the Global Times newspaper that China had threatened US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi before her Asian tour if she visited Taiwan, where she used the phrase: “Don’t say we didn’t warn you, Pelosi.” It is a phrase used in 1962 before the start of the Chinese war against Indian forces.

The Sino-Indian war began on October 20, 1962 and ended with the victory of China on November 21, 1962. The main reason for the war was the control of Aksai Chin Territory. There were a series of violent border incidents after the Tibetan uprising of 1959, when India granted asylum to the Dalai Lama.

Unable to reach a political settlement on the disputed territories along the 3,225-kilometre Himalayan border, the Chinese launched simultaneous attacks in Ladakh and across the McMahon Line on October 20, 1962. The war ended with China declaring a ceasefire on November 20, 1962, and at the same time declaring its withdrawal to the Line of Actual Control.
