As Border Standoff Continues, China Warns India of 'Resolve'

Pentagon urges talks on Doklam standoff

Colonel Wu Qian, spokesperson of China's Defence Ministry, warned India to not "push your luck" by underestimating China's resolve to safeguard what it calls its sovereign territory.

It's easier to shake a mountain than the PLA, Wu added.

The location was not far from Doklam, where Chinese and Indian forces remain locked in a stand-off sparked by a road construction project in a disputed border area at the tri-junction with Bhutan.

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.

India stopped the Chinese Army from building a road in Doklam in June, leading to the face-off between New Delhi and Beijing.

Wu urged India to immediately withdraw its troops, describing the request as a prerequisite to resolving the situation. "I want to stress again, it is the pre-condition for any meaningful talks between the two sides", Spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Lu Kang said during a regular press briefing while responding to a question regarding a possibility of resolution of China-India standoff during the BRICS security summit.

"The determination and the willingness and the resolve of China to defend its sovereignty is indomitable, and it will safeguard its sovereignty and security interests at whatever cost", he added.

Last week, India's Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said both India and China should withdraw their troops in order to start talks on the festering dispute.

Nepal's key political parties should adopt a common position on the standoff and call on both sides to maintain restraint, the parliamentarians said.

China has warned India not to "cling to fantasies" amid a tense border stand-off, which also involves Bhutan, involving disputed territory in the Himalayas.

Despite new tough talk today about the border confrontation at Sikkim, China has indicated that National Security Adviser Ajit Doval is likely to meet one-on-one with his counterpart when he travels to Beijing later this week for a session of top security officials of BRICS. She also said that China was trying to change the delicate balance at the tri-junction which hosts the borders of Bhutan, India and China.
