'Sikkim standoff: China says its restraint has 'bottom line'

China warns India of 'serious consequences' over border

The comments from the Chinese Ministry of National Defense on Thursday were the most blunt. Your (India's) legs are becoming too long.

"However, the Indian side didn't make any response to the Chinese side through any channel for over one month".

The plateau is strategically significant, as it gives China access to the so-called "chicken's neck" - a thin strip of land connecting India's northeastern states with the rest of the country.

According to the official, Beijing showed goodwill and had notified the Indian site before the construction in Doklam began, on May 18 and June 8.

Last month India, the U.S., and Japan held what Trump boasted was the largest-ever Indian Ocean naval exercise in the Bay of Bengal. "If India refuses to withdraw, China may conduct a small-scale military operation within two weeks", said Hu Zhiyong, a research fellow at the Institute of International Relations of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences. Not to mention Bhutan settling border disputes with China, which could mean Bhutan ceding Doklam plateau to China, is highly undesirable for India.

China's Foreign Ministry has accused India of building up troops and repairing roads at a military stand-off alongside its border in the Himalayan region.

In a statement, Geng said the action of the Indian side amounts to that of "irresponsibility and recklessness".

Mohamed Omar, executive director of the center, said the center occasionally receives threatening calls and emails. Worshippers managed to extinguish the blaze before firefighters arrived, the society said in a news release.

From June 16 onwards, the soldiers of India and China are seen face-to-face and both the governments of the two countries have corrected their stand and said that they will not be withdrawn.

The statement said that as a sign of "goodwill" China had informed New Delhi of the road-building project in advance.

Even though India is confident that Bhutan will never agree to sort out the boundary issue with China bilaterally, it has not gone unnoticed that sections of the Bhutanese press is insisting on evolving an independent outreach with the global community, including China. Second, and more importantly, Beijing has challenged India's special relationship with Bhutan. He also referred to External Affairs Ministry Sushma Swaraj's statement that as a neighbour India was committed to help Bhutan.

Today, no country in Asia has any doubt that China has definite expansionist plans and it wants to browbeat other Asian countries by it's economic or military strength or by using both. Yet the Chinese, due to their enormous control over the media, have been painting themselves as the victim and India as an aggressor.

While the Indian foreign Minister has spoken on the India China stand off with great sense of responsibility and statesmanship, it needs two hands to clap. "India's recklessness has shocked Chinese".

China's defence ministry last week also warned India not to harbour any illusions about the Chinese military's ability to defend its territory. You don't stop dealing with that brother, with whom you have differences, on other issues, " Ma said.
