India's Modi Says Dialogue Is Sole Way to Resolve Conflicts

"We will continue to engage with the Chinse side through diplomatic channels to find a mutually acceptable solution". So, it is reassuring to hear India's external affairs minister rule out war as an option and talk about diplomacy as the only solution for India's current standoff with China.

India's actions are not only a serious encroachment of Chinese territory, but a challenge to regional peace and stability and normal worldwide order, it added.

Baglay also clarified that the development of its border areas is the legitimate matter of interest for the Indian government as well as its responsibility.

"The series of remarks from the Chinese side within a 24-hour period sends a signal to India that there is no way China will tolerate the Indian troops' incursion into Chinese territory for too long", Hu was quoted as saying by state-run Global Times. "This is by no means for peace", Geng said. "It has nothing to do with India", according to a statement the ministry released on Wednesday entitled "The Facts and China's Position Concerning the Indian Border Troops' Crossing of the China-India Boundary in the Sikkim Sector into the Chinese Territory".

But the Chinese media, particularly the Global Times tabloid, has unleashed a barrage of anti-India rhetoric in recent weeks amid tensions between the two countries.


The editorial, known for its hard hitting stance on India, said, "The Indian government's move is irresponsible to regional security and is gambling against India's destiny and its people's well-being".

In spite of highly provocative statement from China, the government of India has handled the issue with firmness and dignity, that seem to have further upset China, since India is not responding with the similar war cry.

Beijing alleges Indian forces crossed into a region known in China as Donglang, called Doklam in India, early in June and obstructed work on a road on the Himalayan plateau. India wants to resolve the dispute over the standoff between their armies in the Sikkim sector diplomatically, but China says it won't talk unless India withdraws troops from Doklam. It appeared to be an attempt to increase pressure on India, however, along with strongly worded statements this week from China's foreign and defense ministries, as well as in state media.

On Thursday, Chinese officials urged Indian troops to withdraw immediately, warning of "serious consequences" if they did not.

"The standoff has not been resolved because China and India see the incident from different perspectives". Beijing said its People's Liberation Army (PLA) has shown "utmost goodwill" and a "high level of restraint" but the situation could easily change if New Delhi's forces do not pull back.
