Would safeguard China's sovereignty whatever the cost: PLA threatens India

China: India must pull back its troops amid border standoff

China has warned India not to harbor any illusions about its military's ability to defend the territory. Calling Indian overtures for a peaceful negotiation as an "illusory thinking", China seems to be in no mood to douse the stand-off very soon or quickly, Chinese defence ministry spokesperson has said that India must not try to take the People's Liberation Army (PLA) lightly.

"Shaking a mountain is hard", Senior Colonel Wu Qian of the PLA said in a message to India, adding: "Shaking the PLA is even more hard".

It may be pertinent to mention here that the Plateau is dispute between China and Bhutan.

India responded to the call by sending troops last month to evict the Chinese army construction party from the Doklam Plateau.

India has felt threatened by the growing presence of China's navy, diplomats and state-backed companies in the Indian Ocean region, while Beijing resents closer relations between New Delhi and Washington.

Wu said withdrawal of Indian troops was a precondition for any dialogue.

India and China have been involved in a dispute in the Doklam region along the Sikkim border for over a month now.

Three Israelis Killed In West Bank Terror Home Invasion
The ministry blamed Israeli fire for a second shooting in the A-Tur area of east Jerusalem that left another Palestinian dead. Three Israelis having dinner in their West Bank home were murdered by a 19-year-old Palestinian wielding a knife Friday.

China said today that it will safeguard its security interests at “any cost” as its sovereignty was “indomitable”, amid a standoff with India in the Sikkim sector. He called for a joint effort to maintain peace in the border areas.

"The determination and will of China to defend its sovereignty is unwavering and indomitable".

Asked whether India and China would hold bilateral talks, Lu said, "On bilateral meetings, I do not have the relevant information right now". Both Bhutan and India have objected to China over the attempt to build a road in Doklam citing security concerns.

He said the military deployment and training in Tibet would be stepped up in the face of the dragging stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops at Doklam.

The issue is likely to be discussed when India's National Security Adviser Ajit Doval visits Beijing on July 27-28 India's special representative for border talks to attend a security forum under BRICS.

In his recent interactions with the media, deputy prime minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara, who also holds the foreign affairs portfolio, said Nepal is closely following the situation between the two giant neighbours while urging both sides to sit for talks to ease tensions.
