"India's intention is very clear, which is to use the so-called "security concern" as well as protecting Bhutan as a pretext to cross the China-India boundary at the Sikkim section and enter the Chinese territory of Doklam", said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang.
Gen Shuang, a spokesperson for China's foreign ministry, on Wednesday said India is violating global law and the 1954 Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, or Panchsheel Treaty, that serves as the basis of China and India's relations. Those sites were at the centre of fierce border skirmishes between India and China in 1967.
The Chinese are building up the pressure on India, resorting to bullying and threatening, via their state media publications and spokespersons.
For nearly three weeks now, India and China have been embroiled in a standoff in Dokalam, a plateau that lies at the tri-junction between China, Bhutan and Sikkim. Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognises as Dokalam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region.
Reprising previous talking points, he claims that China's territorial sovereignty has been "undermined" by the crossing of Indian border troops from Sikkim on June 18. Bhutan requested assistance from longtime ally India, who also sent forces into the disputed region, which were involved in a series of minor incidents with Chinese troops.
It's only fair to share.
It also added that "Beijing should reconsider its stance over the Sikkim issue".Читайте также: Madrid president makes bold statement over Morata's Manchester United transfer
"We firmly believe that the face-off in the Donglong area will end up with the Indian troops in retreat".
Meanwhile, China on Wednesday accused India of "trampling" on the Panchsheel principles and asked New Delhi to "correct its mistakes" as soon as possible by pulling back troops. Apart from the mock drill and testing of military equipments, the members of People's Liberation Army (PLA) also underwent live firing exercises, the report said.
China has "exhibited a larger pattern in the last two years" and sees itself as an Asian hegemon, Rej said.
Separately, an editorial on Thursday, in state-run tabloid GlobalTimes, proposed that, "China should lead the global community in restoring Bhutan's diplomatic and defence sovereignty", insinuating that India had constrained free expression of Bhutan's political will.

China also appeared frustrated that India has refused to join its continent-wide "One Belt, One Road" infrastructure initiative, which includes a key component in Pakistan India's archrival but one of China's staunchest allies. "(India's Defence Minister) (Arun) Jaitley is right that the India of 2017 is different from that of 1962 - India will suffer greater losses than in 1962 if it incites military conflicts".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
