India Takes on China Re: Tiger Poaching
Talks of tiger poaching
India's minister set to raise issue of demand for tiger parts during China visit
NEW DELHI – INDIA'S feisty environment minister says he intends to tackle at source the reason his country's efforts to protect the tiger are failing – China's demand for tiger parts that fuels poaching of the big cats.
'I think we have a good enough, mature relationship with the Chinese to tell them that while we are doing our best to curb poaching, you cannot be oblivious to the fact that demand for tiger parts is the real reason for this,' said Mr Jairam Ramesh, whose ministry oversees the environment and forests.
