  • China Border Dispute India

He claimed that the incident has nothing to do with the tri-junction between China, India and Bhutan.

After Chinese officials said India should learn "historic lessons" from its humiliating defeat in the 1962 war, Indian Defense Minister Arun Jaitley shot back by saying that "India in 2017 is different from India in 1962", in a reference to its improved military strength.

China appeared frustrated that India refused to sign on this year to its continent-wide "One Belt, One Road" infrastructure initiative, which includes a component in Pakistan and a part of Kashmir that is contested by India. They also reflect annoyance over India stepping in on behalf of Bhutan, and its own strategic interests, and resisting China's plans. "In 1950s, China, India and Myanmar proposed the five principles (Panchsheel) of co-existence", Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Gen Shuang said.

The Chinese official media on Wednesday stepped up its attack on India with editorials asking Indian troops to move out of Doklam area in Sikkim sector "with dignity or be kicked out" and describing the situation as "worryingly tense".

"In disregard of the 1890 Sino-Britain convention, the Indian side said that Doklam is located within the tri-junction of the three countries, that is misleading the public", Geng said.

"Before the stand-off, an Indian military leader said they are ready for the "2.5 front war", and after that, another leader claimed "today's India is not the India of 1962".

The comments seem part of a strategy to push India on the defensive and undercut PM Narendra Modi's visit to the U.S. and Israel that are being seen as successes internationally.

Each side has about 3,000 soldiers facing off across a remote plateau in the pocket of land where Tibet meets Sikkim and Bhutan, Indian media reported citing army sources.

China then retaliated by closing a mountain pass that Indian pilgrims use to reach Mount Kailash, a sacred Hindu and Buddhist site in Tibet.

"I want to point out that the relevant actions by the Indian side violated the purposes and principles of the UN Charter in defiance of the global law and norms".

"The Chinese government is very clear that it wants peaceful resolution at current state of the situation, for which withdrawal of Indian troops from the area is a pre-condition", he told the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency late Tuesday. India says China is occupying 38,000 square kilometers (15,000 square miles) of its territory on the Aksai Chin plateau. "This time, we must teach New Delhi a bitter lesson." notes China Daily in its editorial. It also said that the Chinese "look down" on the Indian military, and India will "suffer greater losses than in 1962" in case of a conflict. We believe the Chinese People's Liberation Army is powerful enough to expel Indian troops out of Chinese territory ... "The Indian military can choose to return to its territory with dignity, or be kicked out of the area by Chinese soldiers", it said.
