  • Doklam standoff: China warns India against harbouring 'illusions', says be 'practical'

He also urged India to take strong measures to correct "its errors and put an end to its provocative acts" to maintain peace in border areas.

In a press conference on Monday, Chinese defence ministry spokesperson Wu Qian said India should not "harbour any realistic illusions" about China's ability to defend its territory, reported news agency Reuters.

China claims that early in June, Indian soldiers crossed into China's Donglang region and obstructed work on a road on the plateau.

"Shaking a mountain is easy but shaking the People's Liberation Army is hard", ministry spokesman Wu Qian told a briefing, adding that its ability to defend China's territory and sovereignty had "constantly strengthened".

"The crossing of the mutually recognised worldwide border by India is a serious violation of China's territory and runs against global law", he added.

"The history of the PLA over the past 90 years has proven our resolve to safeguard sovereignty and territorial integrity, and are capability and resolve are indomitable", he added.

"The crossing of the mutually recognised national borders on the part of a serious violation of China's territory and runs against the global law", Chinese defence ministry spokesman Wu Qian told a press conference.

Citing 1890 convention, China said, "According to the 1890 convention, the Sikkim section has been recognised by both China and India and this convention is effective for both countries".

The development comes days after, Minister of External Affairs (MEA) Sushma Swaraj on asserted that the worldwide community is taking note of the situation and feels that China is aggressive towards a small country like Bhutan and the foreign countries are with India on the matter.

China has been long pressing the statements demanding the withdrawal of Indian troops and accusing India of trespassing in Doklam. Qian's comments come amid a standoff between Indian and Chinese armies in the Doklam area of Sikkim.

India has felt threatened by the growing presence of China's navy, diplomats and state-backed companies in the Indian Ocean region, while Beijing resents closer relations between New Delhi and Washington.
