China has said India should show through deeds its willingness to maintain peace at the border

She underlined that China had been contributing to India's economic growth and had huge stakes in the country. "As a third party, India has no right to interfere in or impede the boundary talks between China and Bhutan, still less the right to make territorial claims on Bhutan's behalf", the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement.

Tensions between the neighbours have been high since 16 June, with Bhutan objecting to an attempt by Chinese troops to build a road on the Doklam plateau.

The paper said the People's Liberation Army had been moving for the last one month.

Both these aspects of tri-junction points and India-China boundary alignment in the Sikkim sector had been earlier addressed in a written common understanding reached between the SRs of India and China on the boundary question in December 2012, when then national security advisor (NSA) Shivshankar Menon was India's SR.

The editorial also claimed that "PLA has made sufficient preparation for military confrontation".

The plateau is strategically significant as it gives China access to the so-called "chicken neck" - a thin strip of land connecting India's northeastern states with the rest of the country.

China and India have always been suspicious of each other, a legacy of the 1962 border war, India's playing host to exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and China's close relations with India's regional rival Pakistan. "PM Narendra Modi should be aware of the [Chinese army]'s overwhelming firepower and logistics. If a war spreads, the [army] is perfectly capable of annihilating all Indian troops in the border region", the daily said.

"The Modi government's hard line stance is sustained by neither laws nor strength". When asked about the possibility of any backchannel discussions with the United States on the Doklam standoff, Desai said that there were not just backchannel negotiations in play but it was being dealt with at the highest level by President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who talk directly to each other. "This administration is recklessly breaking global norms and jeopardising India's national pride and peaceful development", the article read.

"The government remains prepared for its responsibilities to ensure the security of its citizens and territory, but Sushma Swaraj yesterday said that war is not the answer", MEA official spokesperson Gopal Baglay said while addressing a press conference in the national capital.

China's Foreign Ministry issued a document Wednesday setting out what it called "the facts" about Indian troops "trespassing" in Chinese territory, calling on India to immediately and unconditionally withdraw and saying Beijing would work with Bhutan to resolve the boundary issue.

Hu said the military operation would aim to seize Indian personnel "illegally" lingering in Chinese territory or expel them.

In 1890, China and Britain signed the Convention Between Great Britain and China Relating to Sikkim and Tibet. If there is war, it will be a US-China war, with India on the US side, in the South China Sea and in the Himalayas.
