Bhutan acknowledges Doka La is Chinese area: Chinese official

Bhutan acknowledges Doka La is Chinese area: Chinese official”

But it doesn't have to be so.

The document goes on to argue that "The Indian border troops have flagrantly crossed the mutually-recognized boundary to intrude into the Chinese territory and violated China's territorial sovereignty".

Beijing called for India to "immediately and unconditionally withdraw its trespassing border troops" back to their side of the border.

India and China have been locked in a face-off in Doka La for 50 days after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from building a road in the area. India took an intervening stand and helped Bhutan's position.

Nepal will face dire consequences in case a war between India and China breaks out, halting the trade and supplies from India with whom Nepal shares an open border and commonality.

China, however, regards it as its own territory. The Chinese Media even tried spreading lies to pacify the citizen that India has withdrawn troops.

Chinese officials say they are ready to engage in a "small-scale military operation" to remove Indian soldiers they say are on Chinese soil.

"Fifty-five years have passed, but the Indian government is as naïve as it ever was".

"Of course China doesn't want to risk a war and hopes that peace could return and China and India can get along well".

In their next survey, LocalCircles found 83% of 8,973 people prefer a Chinese product over its Indian version as they believe they are cheaper and that Indian goods are quite expensive. China also aims to promote the development of the Yadong region, which is connected to Lhasa with a highway.China is also aiming to establish formal ties with Bhutan. "This could promote the formation of a string of active economic development zones surrounding India, which would not be a bad thing if it could place pressure on New Delhi to deepen its economic cooperation with neighbouring countries".

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

"If the Narendra Modi government continues ignoring the warning coming from a situation spiralling out of control, countermeasures from China will be unavoidable". Here are some of the repeated threats that state-guided Global Times has issued through its daily editorial. This line appeared in other publications as well. "They may have an advantage in the other sectors, but not in the Doklam region", Dr Swaran Singh, Professor at the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, told Sputnik. A standoff ensued after that and both, India and China, have sent their defence forces to protect their interest.

Now China is trying to build a new road, which has been seen as an attempt to alter the status quo.

What has particularly enabled China to make such emphatic projections is, as the document itself notes, the progressive thinning of Indian troops on the border plus, and what is even more important, a reasonable improvement in China-Bhutan bilateral relations.

It is significant that Doklam is a tri-junction between India, Bhutan and China.

For India, a Chinese-controlled route to Gymochen would represent a power creep that would bring Beijing's sphere of control unacceptably close to home. Soon, both sides started sending reinforcements and increasing the military deployment to prepare for armed conflict. So Doval is packed off to China even as a awful crisis prevails. Wang Wenli, Deputy Director General of Boundary and Ocean Affairs from Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that "using the trijunction as an excuse does not hold water at all".

Sources said that this time, the Chinese are making “lots of noise” over the issue but Government of India maintained its composure and issued only a few statements to clarify its position.

Since then, various Chinese government agencies have taken an unprecedented and aggressive stance on the standoff.
