China Media And Official Both Issue Strong Warnings On War With India

Sikkim Standoff

"The report claimed that India has more towed artillery and armored fighting vehicles than China, but such weaponry can not reach their full potential once a war occurs between China and India, as most of the Sino-Indian border lies in highlands and mountain areas, which are not ideal battlefield conditions for such heavy military equipment", said the expert.

India's speculation of China's possible military operation in Doklam and Indian government's statements over the standoff, all indicate the country's guilty conscience, Hu pointed out. China has maintained that "there can not be any room for discussion except that India withdraws its troops", and that New Delhi should not resort to any "stalling tactics".

China has warned New Delhi not to be drawn into a Western military alliance led by the United States and including Japan.

The Congress today said India should use the diplomatic route and also try to take help of its old friends like Russian Federation to ensure that China withdraws its troops from Doklam.

India had also cited the Bhutanese foreign ministry as emphasising that "the construction of the road inside Bhutanese territory is a direct violation of the 1988 and 1998 agreements between Bhutan and China and affects the process of demarcating the boundary between these two countries". China held live fire drills along the border last week, where several thousand troops from both countries are stationed.

India is for a simultaneous withdrawal from Doklam, which, it says, belongs to its other neighbour Bhutan. We could be in a full-scale war with China within a month. Calling it a "courtesy meeting", China's deputy chief of mission also explained Beijing's stand on the matter, according to the Times of India.


In 1969, Nepal's King Mahendra took a bold step by removing Indian security checkposts from the Nepal-China border.

As reports of the border standoff between India and China continue to hog headlines, one of the concerns raised is whether this would have a bearing on the solar sector in India because local project developers are dependent on solar cells and modules imported from China.

Admitting that following the standoff the pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar was cancelled, security sources however said that in case of India reviewing its trade relationship, it would affect the economy of China adversely. Glaser says that Jinping went all the way to Delhi to meet Modi thinking that India won't challenge China as that would be against the policy of India.

The aspects of tri-junction (Sino-Bhutan-India) points along Sikkim and India-China boundary alignment in the Sikkim sector remain unsettled and was referred in a written common understanding between the SRs in December 2012. "Patience, control on comments and diplomacy can resolve problems". "There is no dispute in this regard", it said, adding that India had no right as a third party in the equation to make territorial claims on behalf of Bhutan.

Every Indian government since independence has confirmed the boundary as it stands under the Convention. China has also indicated that "it can intervene in Kashmir on Pakistan's request as India did in Doklam on Bhutan's request".
