China blames Modi for encouraging war; says PLA troops can destroy India

"As a third party, India has no right to interfere in or impede the boundary talks between China and Bhutan, still less the right to make territorial claims on Bhutan's behalf", the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement.

A standoff between Indian and Chinese troops is continuing along the border in Doklam in Sikkim sector close to the tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan, since June 16.

Our objective is to achieve peace and tranquillity and it will be achieved through diplomacy, Baglay said. The incident took place on the Chinese side of the delimited boundary, it said.

The Defence Ministry of China has urged India to immediately withdraw its troops to the Indian side of the boundary, as the military stand-off in the Doklam region drags on. She said India was engaged with China to resolve differences and advocated patience. "This administration is recklessly breaking global norms and jeopardising India's national pride and peaceful development", the article said. And speaking Monday at the inaugural session of an India-US Forum, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj parroted the language that Washington uses to paint China as an aggressor in the South China Sea. Chinese social media exploded in angry posts after the magazine India Today depicted China as a red chicken shorn of Tibet and Taiwan next to its "chick", Pakistan, whose deepening engagement with China worries India. "The Indian side should bear corresponding responsibilities", Geng said.

India on Friday declined to get into China's claim that the number of Indian troops in Doklam area has come down.

China is taking an increasingly tough line on a border row with India amid a rising crescendo of nationalism in state media, and President Xi Jinping looks set for an awkward encounter with Prime Minister at a multilateral summit next month.

Hu said the military operation would aim to seize Indian personnel "illegally" lingering in Chinese territory or expel them.

CHINA yesterday accused India of concocting excuses over the illegal entry of its military into Chinese territory, adding that China had shown great restraint over the incident.

"The Modi government should stop lying to its people that 'India in 2017 is different from India in 1962.' The gap in national strength between the two countries is the largest in the past 50 years".

India says the Chinese action to construct the road was unilateral and changes the status quo. Has also shown the patience of the upper level to maintain normal bilateral relations and regional peace and stability.

"However, goodwill has its principles and restraint has its bottom line", he added.
