China's tanks and soldiers 'READY FOR WAR' as army hurtles to border

Doklam faceoff: Motives, stakes and what lies ahead for India, China Amidst standoff, Pak's Abdul Basit meets with Chinese ambassador in India

On being asked about statements made by Jammu and Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee alleging Chinese interference in Indian affairs, Baglay said he would not like to comment on what chief ministers have to say about India's external affairs.

The most recent dispute flared in June after Chinese teams began building a road onto the Doklam, or Donglang in Chinese, Plateau that is claimed by both China and Bhutan, which cooperates closely with India on security matters. He further said that the diplomat said the construction of road by the Chinese government is no ground for sending troops across.

According to China, the Indian border troops illegally trespassed into Chinese territory, Doklam.

He said that it was important to remember that, "At that time, don't forget, we were negotiating a nuclear deal with the United States which China thought perhaps that India was moving closer to the United States, and this may also act as restraint on China".

The article in the tabloid daily, which is a part of the ruling Communist Party of China media group, said: "As the confrontation goes on, China needs to get ready for the face-off becoming a long-term situation and at the same time, needs to maintain a sense of rationality".

The borders of India, Bhutan and China meet at Doklam, which holds a strategic importance to all three.

Swaraj said China has been demanding that India withdraw its forces from the area.

External affairs minister on Thursday warned China against any unilateral attempts to change the status quo in its northeast Sikkim state where a month-long standoff between the troops of both sides continues.

"We are saying that the matter can be resolved through talks, but both sides have to first take back their armies", she said. "If there are any other engagements, we will keep you informed", added Baglay.

Last month, Indian troops blocked Chinese road works in Doklam and have since been in a faceoff with PLA troops.

Calling China India's biggest enemy, Yadav claimed the neighbouring country is conspiring against India and is fully prepared to launch an attack on India.

"China and India are two great neighbours that can not afford to be hostile to each other". Amid the standoff, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval would be in Beijing on July 27-28 to attend a meeting of the NSAs from BRICS nations. "No one has the power which can surround or corner India", the Minister said.
