China Warns India – Be Ready for War like 1962

"There is no chance of compromise" - China Warns India

China, while accusing India of 'misleading public' about Sikkim stand-off, said that the region where the road is being built is a part of its territory according to a treaty signed in 1890 with Britain when it was a colonial power. China on Thursday, June 29, warned India it will escalate the current border row if it did not withdraw troops from "Chinese territory" and said this was a "precondition" for a "meaningful dialogue" with New Delhi.

In an interview, China's ambassador said Indian troops should "unconditionally pull back to the Indian side". There is no question of a compromise, envoy Luo Zhaohui told the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency.

Talking to the media, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang displayed the "photos" from the lectern for a few seconds. The pictures were not clear from a distance. Lu said these will be put up on the Foreign Ministry website after the press briefing.

"We again urge the Indian side to abide by historical boundary convention, respect Chinese territorial sovereignty and withdraw the troops to the Indian side of the boundary to avoid further escalation. This is the precondition for the settlement of the incident and also the basis for us to conduct a meaningful dialogue," he said.

By Chinese territory, Lu meant Donglong or Doklam, a disputed territory between China and Bhutan where troops from the People's Liberation Army and the Indian Army had scuffled.

"The Indian side is actually misleading the public by saying that the incident took place at the tri-junction point," the Chinese government said, referring to India flagging the new road as a major security concern because of its location at the "tri-junction" or area where Tibet, India and Bhutan meet.

China has alleged that the Indian troops are on its soil, but both Bhutan and India say the area in question is Bhutanese territory.

India, which has a military presence in Bhutan, says its troops approached a Chinese army unit that entered the Doklam area of the Himalayan nation on June 16 and tried to build a road.

It is true that we have a border dispute with China. But in the last 40 years, not a single bullet has been fired because of the border  dispute," Modi said in a panel discussion at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Modi spoke in the context of an "inter-connected and inter-dependent world" where, he said, countries may have some disputes but that should not stop them from moving ahead in "areas of collaboration", like India and China were doing.
