China moved huge military hardware into Tibet after Sikkim standoff

China moved huge military hardware into Tibet after Sikkim standoff”

Samajwadi Party MP Mulayam Singh Yadav raised the issue of ongoing standoff between India and China at Doklam in the Lok Sabha.

China brought more construction material to the point where the unilateral status of the border ended, the minister said, adding all countries were with India as they understood New Delhi's viewpoint.

Indian troops have been stationed at the Donglong border, near its mountainous Sikkim state, for more than a month, which is the longest stand-off between the two neighbors since a war they fought in 1962. This clarification follows reports in Chinese media that China carried out huge mobilisation of heavy equipment and resources following the face-off at Doklam in Sikkim region.

In recent years, the two have clashed over China's strategic ties with India's arch rival Pakistan, including a massive trade corridor that China is building through the disputed territory of Kashmir. China has also declared that it has global support, with its foreign ministry saying on Tuesday that foreign diplomats were "shocked" by India's "illegal trespass". "Nationalist fervour that demands revenge against China has taken root in India since the border war".

To a question on whether India can explore going to the United Nations if diplomacy fails to resolve the standoff, Baglay said he cannot reply to hypothetical questions but added "In a sense you have answered your own question". "There is a written agreement signed in 2012 which states that the issue of trijunction (the border where the three countries meet) should be decided by India, China and ..."

The article accused India of harbouring deep suspicions toward China and considering it as a rival and a potential enemy. We are involved in a tri-junction this time and it's directly related to us.

The Defence Ministry has denied reports that China has carried out a major troop mobilisation on its side on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Tibet region. With growing national strength, China is capable of deploying resources in remote border areas. China has alleged that Indian troops are on its territory.

The editorial goes on to add that India should prepare for "all-out confrontation" if a conflict is triggered.

Chattisgarh MP Chhaya Sharma raised the issue of presence of China in the South China Sea, to which Sushma countered by saying there is no threat to India from Beijing as she "cannot say China is encircling New Delhi in terms of sea presence".
