Chinese intelligence cooperation with NSCN(IM)

The Diplomat this week published an article on links between Chinese intelligence services and northeast Indian rebel groups, particularly the NSCN(IM).  It has been alleged that agents of Chinese intelligence services have done arms deals with the NSCN(IM) and that the NSCN(IM) has established a permanent presence in Kunming, Yunnan Province.  The Kunming representative acts as broker and passes on information about Indian armed forces activities in Arunachal Pradesh, a state China claims as its own.

The comments on the article make for interesting reading as well.

The Diplomat article draws heavily on an earlier article published in Outlook India.
