China tells India to withdraw its troops from Chinese territory

India should shed 'strategic anxiety: Chinese media

"In 1962, China fought a war with India after the latter encroached on Chinese territory, resulting in the deaths of 722 Chinese troops and 4,383 Indian soldiers".

"India is provoking China because it wants to prove to the US it could contain China while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in the US", Hu said.

At the centre of the confrontation is a road built by China in Doklam, which China refers to as Donglang.

"In fact, Chinese maps show sizable areas of Bhutan as part of Tibet", Nehru said in the letter accessed by PTI here.

The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) responded to the Indian intervention by destroying two Indian bunkers in the area. The situation still remains tensed at Doka La tri-junction in Sikkim, where the armies of both the countries have been clashing since the last three weeks. China has been organising annual trips for journalists from Nepal and India for quite some time.

A standoff erupted between the two militaries after the Indian Army blocked construction of the road by China in the Doklam area. The tensions on the border have led to a sharpening of rhetoric between the two countries. According to the Indian Express, Bhutan had also opposed to its construction.

It is the first time that Indian troops have crossed the mutually recognized boundary and trespassed into China's territory, triggering a close range face off between Chinese and Indian border troops.

Hu claimed that India is provoking China because it wanted to prove to the United States that it could contain China while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in the US. "Concerns over a rising China have, to some extent, spiralled into a kind of strategic anxiety regarding the country among some Indian politicians". Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government India has all but abandoned any pretense of "strategic autonomy" and transformed itself into a frontline state in the usa drive against China.

The speaker said: "No genuine negotiations have begun to rescue your children". The threat in the region has been growing for years. The UN, however, will not contribute financially.

Chinese media and analysts have since warned that war is possible between India and China if the conflict is not managed properly.

Earlier in April this year, India's permanently deployed P-8I maritime surveillance and attack aircraft in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands near the Strait of Malacca intercepted a Yuan class conventional submarine which was deployed to check piracy activities.

The article further quote another defence and experts views stating that China's rise should worry India because it not only seeks the status of the world power globally, but plans to do so by thwarting India. This is exemplified by China's plans to invest more than $50 billion in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The row between the Asian neighbors could impact talks between Modi and the Chinese president should they cross paths at the summit this week. It termed Washington's move as a "serious political and military provocation".

Significantly, China sprang to Islamabad's defense. "We request India to respect the treaty and pull back the border troops immediately".

The Indian ruling elite has been tilting toward Washington since the beginning of the 21st century.

Irrespective of whether this was deliberate or a miscalculation, in the larger political context, China is leaving with little strategic options.New Delhi is realizing that with China, there is no middle ground. The lines are based on an 1898 treaty signed with China.

"[China] will take all necessary measures to safeguard its territorial sovereignty", said a statement released by the Chinese foreign ministry. However, to this claim, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said that India has changed a lot since that prehistoric agreement.
