US Concerned Over India-China Standoff

India has once again clearly told China that it is capable of defending itself against any threat from China.

China has accused India of trespassing into its territory and demanded withdrawal of troops leading to a heated exchange. Today, foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said that other nations back India in the stand-off.

The article said that if India "stirs up conflicts in several spots, it must face the outcome of an all-out confrontation with China along the entire LAC (Line of Actual Control)".

India and China have been witness to the stand=off for long over the tri-junction area of Doklam sector near Bhutan.

The former Foreign Secretary, who also served as India's ambassador to Myanmar, Indonesia and Nepal, said that India's biggest challenge comes from the rise of China which would seek to narrow India's strategic space by penetrating India's own neighbourhood.

One was that wages are not rising quickly, reflecting the previous period of near-zero inflation and economic uncertainty. The Philly Fed said its index for current manufacturing activity in the region slumped to 19.5 in July from 27.6 in June.

On another front, highly placed sources have said that the Indian Army is at a far more advantageous position in Doklam than China and the situation is not as bad as the Chinese Media makes it out to be.

"China is also different from [how it was in] 1962", Wang was quoted as saying, noting that in 1962, "logistics difficulties contributed to [China] pulling back and declaring a unilateral ceasefire".

"At that time, perhaps, there was an environment where India was seen as power which could be in same league as China, and secondly, there was an worldwide environment where there was more to be gained in working with India, rather than confronting India", Saran said.

Chinese and Indian soldiers have been locked in a face-off for over a month after Indian troops stopped the Chinese army from building a road in the area.

The spokesperson said the government of India has been laying stress on the Astana consensus between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived at last month that the two countries must not allow differences to become disputes.

China has moved "tens of thousands of tonnes" of military vehicles and equipment into Tibet since it got involved in a tense standoff with India in mid-June, Chinese state media said on Wednesday (July 19) as it intensified its shrill campaign against New Delhi over the border row.

Most of these air bases are located opposite Arunachal Pradesh.

New Delhi says the road, if built, will have serious security implications for India.
