The two countries have for months been locked in a standoff after India blocked Chinese efforts to extend a border road through Doklam, a plateau that is claimed by both Bhutan and China.

It also referred to India's defense of Bhutan as a "hijack" of its smaller neighbor. It shows a Chinese actor in a turban and faux beard speaking in a odd accent, apparently mocking Indians.

Kumar said that China was expected to share the information in accordance with the existing Expert-Level Mechanism and the MoUs inked in 2013 and 2015, but Beijing "has so far not shared with India any data this year". The next day, China reportedly requested a flag meeting with India to re-establish order, which suggests that this may have been an accidental scuffle that got out of hand.

Despite the ongoing Doklam crisis, the most serious military face-off between Indian and China in three decades, the Indian government has no plans to single out the investment proposals of Chinese firms, a Home Ministry official said on Thursday.

And, here is Japan extending wholehearted support for India against Chinese aggressive posturing over Doklam. This is exactly what External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in Parliament while giving a statement on Doklam standoff.

On being asked how this will impact the flood situation in Assam and Bihar, Kumar said that floods happen every year in India and the nation has to bear its consequences and hence "linking" this issue with China is a bit "premature".

Japan, who also is faced with maritime aggression by China, emphasised the need to respect agreements and not alter the status quo at will.

"We will continue to engage with China to find a mutually acceptable solution", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said replying to a volley of questions on the issue.

Graphic video and photographs posted on social media showed many people lying motionless on the ground, some in pools of blood. It was the latest in a series of attacks in Europe in which vehicles have been used to mow down pedestrians in public spaces.

"And the attempt to change the status quo by trespass in the boundary is by India, not China".

India has also raised objections to China's Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group's proposed Dollars 1.3 billion takeover of Indian drug maker, Gland Pharma. More worldwide scrutiny might convince both countries to be more careful or make them more defensive about their global images.

"Nobody's blaming me because I am asleep", the man says with an Indian accent.

The Ambassador even said Japan has been watching the developments in Doklam closely. It is also significant that Singapore and Vietnam have been exhorting India to increase its profile in the region.
