All I see is, comparing Apples with oranges.i am sorry to know your ignorance and knowledge gained from whatsapp university. please check facts India and Bangladesh exchanged, swapped, and gave up enclaves and exclaves all along the border, btw didn't you hear china buying 1000 sq miles of Turkmenistan territory, and doing similar deals with Mongolia and Kazakhstan, oh btw didn't anyone tell you that pak gifted / sold Saksgam valley / trans Karakoram tract to China in exchange for money to develop Rawalpindi citym and yes did you forget US bought panama canal track and UK bought Suez canal tract and both were very reluctant in returning them, btw there is no intention on my side to insult or demean you
Panama and Suez was a long time ago.
Besides, Panama canal zone was 'unincorporated territory' of US.
Even that country itself was curbed out of Colombia by US for its own interest. The definition of 'State' barely apply on Panama at that time.
And when it comes to Saksgam valley, clearly you should have read more carefully about it.
From Article 6 of the treaty “the two Parties have agreed that after the settlement of the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India, the sovereign authority concerned will reopen negotiations with the Government of the People's Republic of China, on the boundary as described in Article Two of the present Agreement, so as to sign a formal Boundary Treaty to replace the present agreement.”
Doesn't look like Pakistan sold its sovereign territory as you are describing it.
I can drag that conversation but it will only derail the thread. Let's not do that.
Back to the topic.
1. There is no way BD is not going to sell its sovereign territory to India. (For the simple fact that, it is a people’s Republic. And 90% people won't agree on this) And this is not even comparable with enclave exchanges.
(Even that took almost 50 years to effectively implement it)
2. Any territory swap offer wouldn't be realized either. It would simply piss China off as it would be seen as Bangladesh is actively siding with India in the dispute. (which would be a huge problem for BD)
In a nutshell, Bangladesh will not take any part in India-China dispute or any potential conflict. We will always stay out of it.
@Nilgiri Could you move this convo to history, war, geopolitics thread?
