China will resolutely safeguard its sovereignty: Chinese experts

The legality stated behind this extraordinary unsettling act is the pact signed by the Imperial Empire and China in 1890 The legality stated behind this extraordinary unsettling act is the pact signed by the Imperial Empire and China in 1890

Due to differing territorial perceptions, India and China disagree on large parts of the border, with India frequently reporting Chinese transgressions on to its territory, which China claims as its own.

China earlier claimed that it was India that had ignored worldwide law and interfered with Beijing's construction activities in the Chinese territory.

The spokesperson said the action taken by the present Indian government was betrayal of the consistent position held by the Indian governments in the past. Detailing the boundary demarcation, this legal document has been adhered to by both India and China up till now as a settlement of disputes along their 3,488-km boundary.

This was followed by a frenzied Chinese public-relations blitzkrieg against India created to obfuscate the real issue - the PLA's encroachment on Bhutanese territory.

The standoff began mid-June when Indian troops halted the construction of a road in the strategic Doklam region, which China refers to as Donglang.

China alleged that the Indian troops "trespassed" the recognised delineated boundary between China and India on June 18. Like Naik, journalists from other India media houses were invited. The Chinese forces had in November 2008 destroyed some makeshift Indian army bunkers there.

It might also be an effort by China to stop growing strategic entente between India and U.S., given that this happened at the time as PM's surprisingly successful United States visit.

The Indian and Chinese border troops are in a more than two-week-old standoff at Doklam located at the narrow but strategically important tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan, with the three countries barely separated by mountains and passes.

Last week, after China had warned India to learn from its military debacle of 1962, Jaitley had said that the India of 2017 was not the India of 1962.

A meeting between PM Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of G-20 in Hamburg later this week is not ruled out. The decision was conveyed to the batch of journalists by the Chinese embassy in New Delhi.

Chinese are making attempts to build a road which was objected to by Bhutan.

Having said that, China's stance remains that the channels of communication are un-impeded but India has to retreat.

Meanwhile, another defence expert Ashok Mehta said that for the first time ever, India has a situation in the Chumbi valley in the Doklam plateau, where Indian and Chinese soldiers are confronting each other on Bhutanese territory.

While the move is being seen by many as China's way of increasing its presence in the Indian Ocean Region, the Indian Navy officials have said that this is routine and has nothing to do with the Sikkim standoff.

At a diplomatic level, India has told China that such construction would represent a significant change of status quo with serious security implications for India. The stealth wars include constructing a dispute and then setting in motion a jurisdictional creep through a steady increase in the frequency and duration of Chinese incursions - all with the intent of either establishing military control over a coveted area or pressuring the opponent to cut a deal on its terms.
