  • China warns India of 'serious consequences' over border

"We will continue to engage with the Chinese side through diplomatic channels to find a mutually acceptable solution". So, it is reassuring to hear India's external affairs minister rule out war as an option and talk about diplomacy as the only solution for India's current standoff with China.

"What India has done not only severely violates China's territorial sovereignty but also poses a grave challenge to regional peace and stability and the worldwide order, which will not be tolerated by any sovereign state", Geng said. "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.

India's actions are not only a serious encroachment of Chinese territory, but a challenge to regional peace and stability and normal global order, it added. China has demanded that India withdraw its troops for dialogue to begin, while New Delhi says that both sides should simultaneously withdraw troops.

Yong said Chinese government would inform the Indian foreign ministry before taking the army action.


She also said that the government is not just negotiating on Doklam, but is also talking on the bilateral relations with China. "This is by no means for peace", Geng said. "No country should underestimate the Chinese forces' confidence and capability to safeguard peace and their resolve and willpower to defend national sovereignty, security and development interests, " Ren said in a statement. "A solution can not be derived out of war", India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in Parliament on Thursday. Knowing this India sent his troops and equipment to put a stop on the roadwork and push back the Chinese workers, China accused India of intruding into its territory and of strong-arming Bhutan into going along. The neighbouring country, China has been holding India responsible for Sikkim standoff. New Delhi said the move was necessary to curb Chinese road construction on the Himalayan plateau, which, according to the India, violates the status quo. China wants Indian troops to turn back without any conditions, whereas India has clearly told China that no talks can be held until both sides decide to retreat from their respective positions.

As of July, there were still over 40 Indian border troops and one bulldozer illegally staying on Chinese territory, Xinhua reported.

He added that China has shown utmost goodwill and sought to communicate with India through diplomatic channels since the incident happened nearly two months ago.

Associated Press adds from Beijing: On Friday, China Central Television broadcast video it said showed an army unit in an unidentified part of Tibet carrying out live-fire firing exercises in the past few days.
