China protests "trespassing" by Indian soldiers

China protests

The foreign ministry said the Indian border guards had "obstructed normal activities" of the Chinese frontier troops in the Donglang area recently and that the Chinese side had to take counter-measures.

"Our position to uphold our territorial sovereignty is unwavering".

"We hope that the Indian side can work with China in the same direction and take actions to withdraw the personnel who have overstepped and trespassed into Chinese borders".

Beijing also said the fate of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra depended on New Delhi.

Tension mounted in a remote area of Sikkim after a scuffle broke out between personnel of the Indian Army and the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), with the latter damaging bunkers on the Indian side of the border.

In a previous statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said: "The Sino-Indian border of Sikkim has been delineated by the 1890 Sino-British Treaty on Tibetan Customs".

Asked about the remaining Indian pilgrims who want to travel to Kailash Mansarovar in Tibet, Lu said it depends on how India handled the situation.

Chinese defence ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang said on Monday that the Indian government has reportedly given confirmation in writing to treaties defining Sikkim section of China-India boundaries. "China is committed to developing bilateral relations with India, but also firmly defend its legitimate rights and interests", it said.

It is unclear when the alleged border incursion happened, but in view of this event, Beijing said it has suspended a mountain pass in the Himalayas, known as Nathu La, which allows Indian pilgrims to enter China.

The Nathu La Pass sits 4,545 metres above the sea level and is wedged between Yadong County in Xigaze Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, and Sikkim.

"According to my information, the foreign ministries of the two countries are maintaining communication on the issue", Shuang said.

The video shows how the Indian Army is politely, but firmly refusing their Chinese counterparts to not to enter the Indian side of the border.

The Chinese forces had in November 2008 destroyed some makeshift Indian army bunkers at the same place.
