Doka La impasse : China warns India, asks for Army pull back

Doka La impasse : China warns India, asks for Army pull back

"India should not leave things to luck and not harbour any unrealistic illusions", Qian was quoted as saying by Reuters.

It was the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan that sounded the alarm: Chinese soldiers had arrived with bulldozers and excavators, and were building a high-mountain road near India's border - in an area the two nuclear-armed Asian giants have disputed for decades.

24 de julio de 2017, 09:43Beijing, Jul 24 (Prensa Latina) China has urged India to immediately withdraw all troops that have illegally entered this territory.

Wu said withdrawal of Indian troops was a precondition for any dialogue.

India claims Sikkim border as part of its territory, while China has said that the area falls on their side as per the 1890 treaty signed between British and China. Over the period China has squarely blamed India for provocation and called to take practical measures to correct its wrongdoing. "We are not going to speculate on such matters", he said when asked if the Pentagon fears the tension may escalate between India and China.

Earlier Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Gang said, "China has pointed out many times that the illegal trespass of Indian border troops of the mutually recognised border line is different in nature from the frictions in the undefined sections of the boundary".

Maintaining Chinas hardline stance on the issue, Wu told a media briefing that the willingness and resolve of China to defend its sovereignty was “indomitable”.

New Delhi and Beijing have been engaged in the standoff in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan tri-junction since June after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road. "The PLA has demonstrated unshakable determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity".

Amid the Sikkim stand-off, China Monday hinted that a bilateral meeting between state councillor Yang Jiechi and national security adviser Ajit Doval could take place on the sidelines of a BRICS NSAs' meet here this week. The nuclear-armed neighbors share a 3,500-kilometer (2,174-mile) border, much of it contested, and China acts as a key ally and arms supplier for India's archrival, Pakistan. The Chinese Defence Ministry's spokesperson went on to say that the peace of the entire region depends on peace of the border region, as per the report.
