China Face Off: Situation Remains Tensed, China Accuses India Of Betrayal

Indian troop withdrawal ‘precondition’ for peace China

As tensions escalated, China warned India to not forget the "history lessons" of the 1962 war, referring to the Sino-Indian war that ended badly for Delhi.

The commentary said "while the Indian decision to boycott the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative may be understandable, "staying away is not the best choice New Delhi could have made".

Meanwhile, sources said India has consistently taken a positive approach in settling its boundary issue with China, including the recent stand-off in the Doklam area on the tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan. "We require India to respect the treaty and pull back the border troops immediately", Geng said.

"And even at the expense of the Bhutan's independence and sovereignty, they try to confuse right with wrong, which is futile".

The same trijunction was the scene of heavy Sino-Indian military clashes in 1967, barely five years after China's 1962 trans-Himalayan invasion led to major Indian reverses.

Besides, the boundary between China and Bhutan - a country with which India has special ties - has not been settled, despite 24 rounds of negotiations, which began in the 1980s between Beijing and Thimpu.

China on Monday dismissed Indian Defense Minister Arun Jaitley's remarks that India of 2017 is different from that of 1962 - a reference to the war the two countries fought.

Preet Bharara Slams Bernie Sanders's Response to 'Pathetic' Attack on His Wife
Toensing filed a request in January 2016 for federal authorities to investigate "what appears to be federal loan fraud". Burnett followed up again and asked Sanders whether he had any knowledge of the FBI investigating his wife.

"India has been treating China as its biggest competitor since 1962, as both countries share many similarities".

Sikkim, which became a part of India in May 1976, is the only state which has a demarcated border with China. The ministry struck to its arguments based on the 1890 Sikkim-Tibet treaty although New Delhi has rejected Chinese arguments supporting their claim on the Doklam area in Bhutan.

Troops from the two sides are confronting each other close to a strategic valley controlled by China that separates India from Bhutan and gives Beijing access to the so-called Chicken's Neck, a thin strip of land that connects India to its seven northeastern states.

The daily also downplayed Modis visit, saying it was "not a historic event, as some media outlets in India boasted, because of the limited results the meeting has achieved". A key component of Beijing's One Belt, One Road initiative, the CPEC will provide rail, road and pipeline links between western China and Pakistan's Arabian Sea port, Gwadar, enabling China to partially circumvent the Pentagon's plans to blockade China by seizing maritime chokepoints.

Responding to the Indo-China stand-off in the Sikkim sector, a Chinese expert has asserted that China might consider the use of military force if India doesn't back down.

"This is different from frictions and confrontations between the two sides at undefined boundary, " Geng said. But it is this convention which has confirmed the alignment of the boundary between the two sides at the Sikkim section. He was trying to contradict an Indian statement that the Royal Bhutan Army had on June 16 protested against the PLA's construction activities in Doklam.

Despite the fact that the U.S. and China had achieved a level of understanding after a meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping in Florida, grindings between the two nations over the South China Sea proceed.
