China tells India to cease making excuses and withdraw its troops
07 August, 2017, 01:11
The Chinese foreign ministry, the defense ministry, the Chinese Embassy in India and the People's Daily have time and again urged India to withdraw its troops, failing which China's People's Liberation Army would be forced to take action.
With India, the USA and China forming a "very combustible mixture right now", the fate of the ongoing Doklam standoff would largely depend upon events in the South China Sea, noted commentator on worldwide affairs, Meghnad Desai has said.
The editorial also claimed that "PLA has made sufficient preparation for military confrontation".
China and India have always been suspicious of each other, a legacy of the 1962 border war, India's playing host to exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and China's close relations with India's regional rival Pakistan.

China's defence ministry last month warned India not to harbour any illusions about the Chinese military's ability to defend its territory.
Adding to the growing belligerence, Global Times said that the PLA was combat-ready but has exercised restraint as it "cherishes peace".
"India, which has stirred up the incident, should bear all the consequences". He said it was unfortunate that the initiatives Prime Minister Narendra Modi had taken initially with China had petered out. Bhutan has protested to China, saying the area belonged to it and accused Beijing of violating agreements that aim to maintain the status quo until the boundary dispute is resolved.
Meanwhile, New Delhi said it continues to engage with Beijing diplomatically to find a mutually-acceptable solution to the Doklam standoff.
"Times are changing and it is economic power and not strategic power that decides strength of a nation..."
"Under such circumstances, instead of deeply reflecting on its mistakes, the Indian side fabricated such sheer fallacies as the so-called "security concerns", the "issue of tri-junction" and "at the request of Bhutan" as excuses to justify its wrongdoing", it said.
