  • India-China War Again? More Tension At Sikkim Border, Beijing Warns Indian Army To Withdraw From Doka La

As the stand-off between the two nations continues for its third week in the Doklam area, longest since 1962, more and more experts from both India and China are asserting war as a strong possibility if the situation is not resolved. "Bhutan does not know that the Indian troops entered into the Doklam area, which is not in line with what is claimed by Indian", China's foreign ministry said.

The standoff first came to public notice when China denied Indian pilgrims entry for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through the Nathu La pass in Sikkim.

The current clash between India and China counts as the longest period of dispute witnessed between the two countries after 1962.

In response to Defence Minister Arun Jaitley's comments that India had changed since 1962 (the last war with China on a similar border issue), Wang Dehua, a professor at the Shanghai Municipal Centre for International Studies, said that even China had changed.

They also conveyed to the Indian side that visas of another batch of 50 yatris had also been cancelled, the sources said, describing the move as an indication of "increased tempers" in Beijing. The newspaper report further claims it to be a "part of a steady pattern of Chinese militarisation", irrespective of the stage at which its diplomatic relations were with its neighbours in dispute.

Xinhua, the Chinese news agency, gave out a statement on Sunday saying that "It is well known that the Sikkim section of the China-India boundary has been demarcated by the 1890 Sino-British treaty". A state run daily in China has said that India's objection to China building a road in the Sikkim sector ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the usa was aimed at demonstrating to Washington its "firm determination" to "constrain" China's rise.

Japan's trade minister - Takata bankruptcy filing was unavoidable
It is being speculated that the company will in total have a liability estimate of around US$ 15 billion. Takata also filed a similar debt-restructuring process in Japan simultaneously early Monday morning.

The Chinese boundary has been defined by the Anglo-Chinese Convention of 1890, which the Indian government has repeatedly agreed to abide by, China's Peoples Daily reported on Monday.

India must start to question China's purportedly historical claim to Tibet itself.

The standoff comes as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping of China are set to cross paths in Hamburg at the G20 meeting of developed and developing countries on 7-8 July. The two impugned bunkers saw light of the day in 2012 as a backup option besides securing Bhutan China border. A key component of Beijing's One Belt, One Road initiative, the CPEC will provide rail, road and pipeline links between western China and Pakistan's Arabian Sea port, Gwadar, enabling China to partially circumvent the Pentagon's plans to blockade China by seizing maritime chokepoints.

India and China have rushed troops to a remote, disputed border region, in what is widely being described as the worst border stand-off between the two countries since they fought a brief border war in 1962. The 2007 pact - signed after the Himalayan kingdom introduced major political reforms to emerge as the world's newest democracy - replaced their 1949 treaty under which Bhutan effectively was an Indian protectorate, with one of the clauses stipulating that it would be "guided by" India in its foreign policy.

According to India, while the status of Sikkim is recognized as being part of India, the boundary is not resolved between India and China.
