China Urges India to Stop Trying Its Patience Amid Ongoing Border Crisis

The Chinese government once again urged India to immediately withdraw its troops from the Doklam plateau in the the Xizang Autonomous Region (Tibet).

The border standoff broke out between China and India after Indian troops entered the area after the Chinese military began the construction of a highway there.

Diplomatic Warning

On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a statement, “The Indian side is always keeping ‘peace’ on the tip of its tongue. But we should not only listen to its words but also heed its deeds.”

According to the official, Beijing showed goodwill and had notified the Indian site before the construction in Doklam began, on May 18 and June 8. The Chinese diplomat said that the Indian side did not answer it and instead “fragrantly dispatched” armed forces to cross the border.

“Over one month has passed since the outbreak of the incident. The Indian border troops still illegally stay in Chinese territory. Moreover, the Indian side is building roads, hoarding supplies and deploying a large number of armed forces on the Indian side of the boundary. This is by no means for peace,” Geng said.

According to the diplomat, India is not responding to China’s calls to withdraw its troops from China’s territory. The Chinese Foreign Ministry also accused India of making reciprocal accusations and defending its “illegal” activities.

“If the Indian side truly cherishes peace, what it should do is to immediately pull back the trespassing border troops to the Indian side of the boundary,” the spokesperson stated.
