A staggering 83 per cent of Indians view China as a major security threat even as 63 per cent of Indians would like relations with China to be strengthened, states an opinion poll.

China's possession of nuclear weapons, its efforts at strengthening its relations with other countries in the Indian Ocean region and the China-India border dispute have emerged as the major reasons because of which the wariness was generated, according to the poll which was launched at the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi.
