Truths about Indian troops' illegal entry into Chinese territory

Truths about Indian troops' illegal entry into Chinese territory

"The Doklam standoff differs from previous military confrontations along the China-India boundary in that it is the first intrusion into the Chinese side of the mutually recognized boundary".

Chinese and Indian troops have been engaged in a standoff in the Doklam area near the Bhutan tri-junction since June after a Chinese army construction group attempted to build a road in Bhutan's territory.

Chinese defense ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang said late Thursday that Chinese armed forces had shown "utmost goodwill" and a "high level of restraint".

He referred to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday that India would continue to engage with the Chinese side through diplomatic channels "to find a mutually acceptable solution on the basis of the Astana Consensus between our leaders". Now, India has said that Chinese actions in the region are a deviation from the status quo with potential security implications for it and Bhutan.

She said even after the terror attack on Pathankot Airbase on January 1,2016, Pakistan, shedding its past practice of being in denial, set up an investigating team to probe it. A "strong India-US partnership", declared Swaraj, is "critical" for "upholding an global rules-based system"-i.e. a US-led order-across the Indo-Pacific region".

"No country should underestimate the Chinese military's confidence in and ability to fulfil its mission of safeguarding peace, and should not underestimate the Chinese military's determination and will to defend the country's sovereignty, security and development interests", it said. "Patience, control on comments and diplomacy can resolve problems". The stand-off is at the Indo-China-Bhutan trijunction and India has decried China's efforts to address a trilateral manner through bilateral means sidestepping 2012 pact on all trijunctions along the LAC. It has lot of facts and all India's position in the statement, he said, "We have put our side on the table fairly and squarely".

The road gives China access to the so-called Chicken's Neck, a thin strip of land connecting India's central mass to its remote northeastern regions.

Swaraj's response came after China issued a 15 page document stating its claims at Doklam. The Indian border troops still illegally stay in the Chinese territory.

China's foreign ministry said that at one point there were more than 400 Indians on Chinese territory, who had advanced over 180 meters into China.

India's slowly and steadily tilting foreign policy has been antagonising China.

"The US", said White, "is largely sympathetic to the challenge that India faces in dealing with a territorially assertive China".
