Border row: China cancels Indian journalists' trip

PM Modi Expected to Meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at G 20 Summit Amid Border Tensions

India should shed its "strategic anxiety" over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and join the Belt and Road Initiative to become a cooperative partner and not a rival, a state-run Chinese news agency said on Sunday, amid a standoff between the two nations in the Sikkim sector.

Reaffirming that the Sikkim section of the China-India border is well-defined by treaties, the ministry's spokesperson, Geng Shuang, pointed out that the Indian government has repeatedly confirmed these settlements in writing and has expressed no objections to them previously.

As per the media reports the Chinese experts here today in an unequivocal manner has stated that to safeguard its sovereignty in the border conflicts with India even at the cost of war, the statement has come amid a military stand-off between Indian & Chinese troops. The Chinese media too said that India needs to learn "the rules" of dealing with border disputes and an article on the Global Times warned India not to be "arrogant". China, however, has sought to obscure its aggression by blaming India for the confrontation by not respecting the trijunction points and the boundary between Tibet and the Indian state of Sikkim, which is also contiguous to Bhutan. "By entering Chinese territory and obstructing our troops' normal activities, India has violated existing convention on the boundary and basic principle of global law", he claimed at a press conference. There is more tension between the two giant economies in Asia over the Sikkim dispute at the border.

On Friday, Jaitley said that Beijing has instigated the military stand-off by building a road along the Himalayan border that is a security concern for India. "(It is) important that consensus on border issue between India and China through Special Representatives process is scrupulously respected".

China has pointed out to an 1890 treaty between Sikkim and Tibet to bolster its claims to the Doklam area of the tri-junction, and India believes Beijing is misrepresenting Delhi's position as well as prior agreements between the two countries.

The seventh Chinese submarine (Yuan class) is on the deployment at the moment whereas the number of Chinese warships in the Indian Ocean is on the rise.

On Monday, the Chinese foreign ministry cited correspondence between former PM Jawaharlal Nehru and Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai as evidence that India "endorsed" the Sino-British treaty.

China also countered Union Defence Minister Arun Jaitley's remarks saying that China of 2017, like India, is also different from 1962.

The Royal government of Bhutan has also lodged a protest against the Chinese government on the 20 of June. Such an invasion would also leave Bhutan completely surrounded and at China's mercy. So far, no bilateral meeting has been arranged for them. The boundary between the two countries is yet to be defined but the two sides have a consensus on the alignment of the boundary.

According to India, while the status of Sikkim is recognized as being part of India, the boundary is not resolved between India and China.

Bhutan has no diplomatic ties with China. And this is not the first time that such a transgression has happened in Doka La.
