Srinagar: China on Tuesday said there will be “utter chaos” if its troops entered India on the pretext that Indian border infrastructure posed a threat to Beijing.
As per reports the Chinese Foreign Ministry said India’s logic that Chinese road building in Doklam on the border posed a threat to New Delhi was “ridiculous and vicious”.
It said China would in no way allow any country or individual to infringe upon its territorial sovereignty.
“The Indian side illegally crossed the boundary on the excuse of … Chinese road building. The reason is ridiculous, vicious and facts are clear,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying reportedly said.
“You may think about it. If we tolerate India’s ridiculous logic, then anyone who dislikes the activity at his neighbour’s home can break into its neighbour’s house.”
“Does that mean when China thinks that large-scale construction of infrastructure at the border area of India is posing a threat, it can enter Indian territory? Wouldn’t that be utter chaos?”
Indian and Chinese troops have been locked since June in a stand-off at Doklam in the Sikkim section of the Bhutan-China border.
This is the longest stand-off between the two armies since 1987 when they faced a similar situation at Somordong Chu Valley in Arunachal Pradesh.
