Cold Start is a military doctrine developed by the Indian Armed Forces for use in a possible war with Pakistan. Although India’s Cold Start military doctrine, Pakistan’s nuclear-armed militarily is strong enough to defend its sovereignty. A top Chinese strategic analyst addressed the media, saying that there will not be a one-sided victory as assumed by New Delhi.This military doctrine involves the various branches of India’s military conducting offensive operations as part of unified battle groups. The Cold Start doctrine is intended to end the war before it escalates into a nuclear conflict with Pakistan.
In an interview, Army Chief Bipin Rawat made an infrequent mention of it, seemingly putting an approval stamp of confirmation about the existence.
Director of Centre for Asia- pacific Studies, Zhao Gancheng, at Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, told the media that comments like the Army Chief Rawat made will increase Ind-Pak tension. Particularly because of vagueness in US foreign policy after President Trump sworn in White House.
“Against this backdrop, any remark that might threaten the delicate peace between the two nations from the Indian military authority will undoubtedly trigger a strong reaction in Pakistan,” Director Zhao said.
“However, both India and Pakistan are nuclear-armed countries. Even if the Cold Start strategy sounds intimidating and there is indeed a gap between the two powers’ military might, it does not mean that New Delhi can easily win a landslide victory against Islamabad. The truth is, Pakistan has considerable strength to safeguard its sovereignty and its nuclear weapons should not be ignored,” Zhao further added.
He also added that United States’ role in India-Pakistan will be significant. President Trump’s policy could be different from Obama, who adopted pro-India policy in his final years in the White House.
