Is India turning its nuclear focus toward China?

It has been noticed that Indian Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar recently has made positive remarks in Singapore, saying that "India and China should not let differences become disputes".

India has said that it will continue to use diplomatic channels with China to resolve the Doklam stand off and insisted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping held "conversation on a range of issues" in Hamburg during the G20 Summit.

Meanwhile, the Centre is under fire from the opposition for the way it handled the Sikkim border issue and the Kashmir situation.
