Narendra Modi hard line stance pushing India into war

Narendra Modi hard line stance pushing India into war

Even as China warned India that its "restraint" has a "bottom line", India said today (August 4) that it continues to engage with China diplomatically and has been coordinating with Bhutan to find a mutually-acceptable solution to the stand-off in Doklam.

Gopal Baglay, official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, declined to respond to the assertion by Liu Jinsong, Deputy Chief of Mission of Chinese Embassy in New Delhi, that India at present had 48 soldiers at the scene of the face-off.

"India thought wrongly that China would tolerate its actions because the meeting is going to be held soon", said Chu Yin, a researcher at the Center for China and Globalization, a Beijing think tank. Plus, New Delhi has been clear that both sides should withdraw troops from the area simultaneously.

China's foreign ministry said in a statement that the Indian military was still in Chinese territory, and that China had acted with a great deal of restraint, demanding that India withdraw its forces. She said India was engaged with China to resolve differences and advocated patience.

Minister of External Affairs (MEA) Sushma Swaraj on Thursday said in the Rajya Sabha that India has taken efforts to ease the standoff with China. The Chinese daily said that Modi is gambling with the country's future and the lives of its people, as a war would make China an easy victor.

India-China standoff at the Doklam is intensifying with every passing day.

The officials were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The election of a constituent assembly on Sunday was held amid mass protests.

The last few days have seen some significant development in the crisis between India and China over the standoff between the armies of both nations in the Doklam area in the Sikkim sector close to the India-China-Bhutan tri-junction boundary.

"The series of remarks from the Chinese side within a 24-hour period sends a signal to India that there is no way China will tolerate the Indian troops' incursion into Chinese territory for too long". Never before has the Indian Army confronted Chinese troops on territory to which New Delhi makes no claim, acting instead in the name of a third country.

Since the incident occurred, China has shown utmost goodwill and sought to communicate with India through diplomatic channels to resolve the incident.

It is a line that has been echoed nearly word for word this week by the foreign ministry, the official Xinhua news agency, the ruling Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily, the official military news website of the Chinese armed forces, and other outlets.

Beijing emphasizes that the intervention Indian troops made on June 18 to prevent Chinese construction workers from expanding a road on the disputed ridge is without precedent.
