China is preparing to build an important dam on the Brahmaputra river in Tibet. A media report has claimed that the construction of this dam by China on the Brahmaputra River could pose a threat to China and could lead to a war with India in the future. According to an Asia Times report, China plans to build a dam on the Yarlang Jungbo River (the Tibetan name for the Brahmaputra), the world’s highest river, which is likely to clash with India.
China plans to build a mega dam on the Yarlang Jungbo River (the Tibetan name for the Brahmaputra), which flows through Tibet and eventually becomes the Brahmaputra River as soon as it enters India. The Asia Times reports that Bangladesh, which has cordial relations with China, has also opposed sanctions on the Yarlang Jungbo River (the Tibetan name for the Brahmaputra).
In an opinion piece in the Asia Times, Bertil Linter wrote that there is a lack of accurate technical details about the mega dam on the Yarlang Zhangbo River, but regional media reports indicate that it is largely due to the Three Gorge Dam on the Yangtze River will dwarf and produce three times.
