Indian troops surrender to Chinese warnings

"The Indian side is deluded if it thinks that China is about to negotiate with an invading force while its national territorial integrity remains infringed indefinitely". But the alignment of boundaries involving India, China and Bhutan has to always be finalized in consultation with all three countries.

China and India share more than 2,000 miles of border, but it's a slim corridor just 12 miles across at its narrowest point - and a nearby nugget of disputed territory - that has the nuclear-armed neighbors at each other's throats. The Bhutanese trade adviser in Kolkata issued a press statement requesting India's help. As China's warmongering has continued, its true colors have become increasingly vivid. While India and China have robust armies facing each other at Himalayas, the Indo-American military exercises have built up strong diplomatic ties between the two countries.

"This is not in our genes", he said when asked about public perception in India that China was an expansionist power because of its backing to Pakistan to prevent a United Nations ban on JeM terror group leader Masood Azhar and building of Dollars 50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Many in the Indian media and officials have been propagating a misleading message that Bhutan is a "protectorate" of India. And there are still steps to be covered before the boundary is finalised on the Sino-Indian boundary in the Sikkim sector as per the same understanding. But, as China's claims and tactics have come under growing scrutiny, its approach has faced diminishing returns.

China has warned India of serious consequences if Indian troops were not pulled back from Doklam, which Beijing calls Donglang and claims is its territory.

Chinese President Xi Jinping had attended the Brics summit in Goa past year. And it is hard to see how Xi could turn the situation around.

Of the 3,488-km-long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in Sikkim. China is also reported to have mobilized troops in many border areas and carried out military exercises in Tibet, amid the Doklam standoff.

But, even without actual conflict, China stands to lose. "The rise in the cost of solar is a phenomenon that needs to be seen separately than that of the tension between India and China".

Already, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has tacitly warned of economic sanctions if China, which is running an annual trade surplus of almost $60 billion with India, continues to disturb border peace. She said, "It is impossible to have a dialogue with India at this time". That imbroglio only ended up strengthening the India-Bhutan alliance. “We had longer standoffs in the past in cases such standoffs lasted for more than a year. Is China seeking ultimate preponderance in Asia? Beijing dares to deal with Vietnam and will stop the Vietnamese from drilling off of Vietnam's coast, Glaser opined. Fear of China changed the situation. Nearly two weeks ago on July 21, it had published a similar threat saying, "If Indian troops continue trespassing into China's territory, what Beijing may do next is to get prepared for a military confrontation and resolve the conflict through non-diplomatic means".
