Chinese media accuses Sushma Swaraj of lying about border standoff

Sikkim standoff: Pak game plan in focus as envoy meets Chinese ambassador to India

He also said that China should stop making aggressive statements, and says that, this kind of dialogue "goes with the Chinese attitude" which they have been showcasing for the past 2-3 years. The Chinese version of the editorial apparently referred to her as "female foreign minister".

China can not afford to "lose an inch" of its territory, Chinese official media asserted on Friday and ruled out withdrawal of the PLA troops from the Dokalam area in the Sikkim sector to end a military standoff.

However, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday that it was only "fair" that both India and China withdraw troops for talks to take place. During the negotiations, USA commerce secretary Wilbur Ross said that China's $347 trade deficit with his country was not the result of natural market forces but the absence of "fair, equitable and reciprocal" relationship between the two countries. He is also likely to meet with the Bhutan ambassador this week. No other country will support India's aggression. Last fall, shortly after the BJP government ordered Indian Army Special Forces to mount cross-border raids inside Pakistan and proclaimed the end of India's purported policy of "strategic restraint" vis a vis Islamabad, Hindu right organizations with close ties to the BJP sought to initiate a boycott of Chinese goods to protest Beijing's support of "terrorist" Pakistan.

The month-long India-China border standoff in the Sikkim sector is seen as part of same Chinese coercive tactics to change the status quo.

Border stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops continues at Dokalam pass with China setting preconditions of "withdrawal" of Indian troops and with India also taking a firm stand that both sides should pull back.

It asserted that India should not count on support of United States and Japan "because their support is illusory". "China has already shown its tolerance and calmness to the largest extent", it said. This was the first time that Japan had joined India and U.S. in their annual bilateral naval exercises. "If New Delhi remains stubborn, India should get prepared for all possibilities from a potentially grave escalation of tension in the future", the daily warned. Doval will be visiting China to attend a meeting of NSAs from BRICS countries. There is, however, not indication yet of whether he will have more meetings with Chinese officials on the sidelines of this meeting.

This was a reference to a visit by India's National Security Adviser Ajit Doval to Beijing for a meeting of the national security advisors from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa on 27-28 July. Even as he is leaving New Delhi and being replaced by a new incumbent, Basit is up to mischief on behalf of his country. The first formal Indian response was issued by MEA on June 30, followed by a reference by Indian foreign secretary in his speech and questions taken at two weekly media briefings.
