China says India violates 1890 agreement in border stand-off

India-China War Again? More Tension At Sikkim Border, Beijing Warns Indian Army To Withdraw From Doka La

On Friday, Mr Jaitley said that Beijing has instigated the military stand-off by building a road along the Himalayan border that is a security concern for India.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in his press briefing yesterday cited Nehrus letter as a piece of historical evidence without, however, referring to Nehrus remarks over China staking claims over Bhutanese territory. China put forth the condition of withdrawal of Indian troops from Doka La - the actual site of conflict - for a meaningful dialogue over the matter.

"India should change its hostile attitude toward China as a good relationship is beneficial for both sides", Wang said. Xinhua News Agency claimed that there was enough evidence to prove that the Indian army had violated the written agreement between the two countries.

Amid tensions with China along the Sikkim border, India will be hosting deputy PM Pham Binh Minh of Vietnam, a country with which Beijing's ties have been bumpy for centuries.

Sikkim, which became a part of India in May 1976, is the only state which has a demarcated border with China.

China has long camouflaged offense as defense, in keeping with the ancient theorist Sun Tzu's advice that all warfare is "based on deception". The road would head towards the Bhutan army camp and would come in the way of distinguishing a boundary between India and China. New Delhi touted the statement chastising Pakistan as an endorsement of its stance on Kashmir, that is, its claim that the mass opposition to Indian rule over disputed Jammu and Kashmir is entirely a result of Pakistani-exported terror.

China today said that there is "no scope for a compromise" with India about the almost two-week old standoff at the Sikkim border and said the "ball is in India's court" to end the tension.

"Doklam has been a part of China since ancient times". He is expected to discuss the issue with his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi. Beijing initially said it stopped the Yatra due to damage to roads in Tibet after rains and landslides. There is an understandable degree of disquiet in India over the fact that the current standoff is the longest between security forces of the two countries after 1962.

The other route to Tibet through Lipulekh pass is open as it is located in the middle section where there is no dispute over boundary between India and China, Geng said. "The Chinese side firmly encourages the United States side to instantly stop such provocative operations that damage China's power and debilitate China's security", he included.

"On September 26 of the same year, when writing back to Premier Zhou Enlai, Prime Minister Nehru unequivocally stated the boundary between Sikkim and Xi Zang, China was defined by the 1890 Convention".

However, the trespass is a clear violation of worldwide law and basic norms governing global relations and a breach of commitment previously honored by successive Indian governments. "In fact, it is the Indian side that has ignored global law and seriously interfered with China's construction activities". The two impugned bunkers saw light of the day in 2012 as a backup option besides securing Bhutan China border.

"This is different from frictions and confrontations between the two sides at undefined boundary, " Geng said.

The Chinese experts also took exception to reports that India's Defence Ministry is surveying the China-India border in order to build an "all-weather railway corridor" with broad-gauge network for swift movement of troops and weaponry, reports The Tribune (TT).
