It's Easier To Shake A Mountain Than The PLA, China Tells India

Indresh Kumar

The Chinese military has warned India that it must immediately withdraw from Doklam, a disputed mountain region along the China-India border.

Qian revealed that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) had undertaken an "emergency response" measure in response to the incident and would "further step up deployments" in the area, adding that it would "safeguard China's sovereignty whatever the cost".

"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".

The standoff began in early June after Beijing accused Indian border guards of crossing into China's Donglang region and obstructing work on a road on the plateau, which is also claimed by Bhutan as its territory.

India has said the Chinese road project threatens its access to the corridor, while China has questioned why India should even have a say in a matter that concerns only Beijing and Bhutan.

"Strongly call on India to immediately withdraw frontier defence personnel from across border", said Wu Qian.

Indian analysts said China appeared to be trying to pre-empt settlement negotiations by establishing a Chinese presence in Doklam. "We are not going to speculate on such matters", he said when asked if the Pentagon fears the tension may escalate between India and China.

Bhutan's foreign ministry called it a "direct violation" of agreements reached in 1988 and 1998 to maintain peace and refrain from unilateral action in the area pending a final border settlement. Both Doval and Yang are Special Representatives of the two countries in the boundary talks. India should abandon any impractical illusions.

"The history of the PLA over the past 90 years has proven our resolve to safeguard sovereignty and territorial integrity, and are capability and resolve are indomitable", he added.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will visit Beijing to attend the BRICS NSA's meeting on July 27-28. "This is the prerequisite and basis for any meaningful dialogue between the two sides", MFA spokesperson Lu Kang said Monday.

Despite mentioning the fact that China and India have a smooth diplomatic channel, the spokesperson said, "India has the responsibility for initiating dialogue on the standoff, which has entered its second month".
