China border row will be resolved peacefully, opposition told

Geng Shuang China’s foreign ministry spokesperson

The article "Indian nuclear forces 2017" explains how India, which traditionally focused on Pakistan continues to modernise its nuclear power and now has an eye on Beijing.

People's Daily has published this article-"If this can be tolerated, what cannot be tolerated?", the editorial refers to India's alleged attempts to "erode" Chinese territory, recounts Indian Army provocation and warns of retaliation.

Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma said: "While we have heard the detailed account and sequence of events which has been presented by the government, the Congress party and the other opposition parties have made it clear that when it comes to national interest, India's security and India's integrity are paramount and are non-negotiable".

"China has a will to solve the problem peacefully by diplomatic means and China also cherishes peace and serenity in the border areas, but the precondition is that the trespassers of India must withdraw unconditionally".

Geng's comments were in reply to a question on the tension between India and Pakistan, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressing concern over the situation in Kashmir, and whether China can play role to defuse the hostility between the two countries.

Earlier, on Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang had said, "Both Pakistan and India are important countries in South Asia".

China and India have been engaged in the stand-off in the Doklam area for the past three weeks after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road at Doklam.

A report in American digital journal - After Midnight - has claimed that India is planning to launch a missile which can target all of China. "Those channels will continue to be used", External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said when asked about the almost month-long stand off in Doklam.

"China has breached and encroached the disputed territory", Jaishankar said, while briefing the Opposition leaders about the Chinese incursion in Doklam. Indian security forces were engaged with their Chinese counterparts on the issue for nearly three weeks, after which China even stopped Indian pilgrims from taking the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra route through the Nathu La pass. Karat said India has been seeking to join the Nuclear Suppliers' Group (NSG) on a priority basis and considers China as the "stumbling block" for this goal.

The two Asian powers are now engaged in a border standoff over Beijing's One Belt One Road initiative - a trade corridor to connect China with Pakistan - which has run into controversy because of the proposed route plan that includes disputed areas.

"However, what China may not have foreseen was India stepping in to defend Bhutan's territorial sovereignty". Sources said the meeting was part of the government's initiative to get the Opposition on board and evolve a broad consensus on these critical issues.
