India still talking to China, says MEA

China warns India of 'serious consequences' over border

China tells India to cease making excuses and withdraw its troops

"China has made it clear that there is no room for negotiation and the only solution is the unconditional and immediate withdrawal of Indian troops from the region", said a commentary Friday by the official Xinhua News Agency.

It is a line that has been echoed nearly word for word this week by the foreign ministry, the official Xinhua news agency, the ruling Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily, the official military news website of the Chinese armed forces, and other outlets.

The conflict between the two countries in the disputed area, known as "Doklam" in India and "Donglang" in China, began in early June, after Chinese workers had begun building a highway through the area, triggering a protest from Bhutan.

Over the past month, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has been on the move.

The investor is also planning to push for margin improvements, but didn't mention plans for a major financial overhaul, they said. Pershing Square was reportedly offered 11.10 to 11.40 each for shares that, at their late 2015 high, traded at 263.81.

According to a report in The Times of India, China's deputy chief of mission met his counterpart from Nepal in New Delhi in a courtesy call, during which China's stand on the issue was discussed. "If a war spreads, the PLA is perfectly capable of annihilating all Indian troops in the border region", said the editorial. We believe that the PLA has made sufficient preparation for military confrontation.

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.

'India will be annihilated'Another editorial in the Global Times also blamed the Narendra Modi government of taking the issue lightly. "So, a solution will definitely emerge if we engage in dialogue on bilateral relations", Swaraj said in Rajya Sabha.

"The Modi government's hard line stance is sustained by neither laws nor strength". China wants Indian troops to turn back without any conditions, whereas India has clearly told China that no talks can be held until both sides decide to retreat from their respective positions. "This administration is recklessly breaking worldwide norms and jeopardizing India's national pride and peaceful development".

Rahul was travelling with SPG commandos some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack as they were sitting in the back. The Congress leader was accompanied by other Congress leaders Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot and party workers.

India's minister of external affairs Sushma Swaraj on Thursday ruled out war over the Doklam standoff, and said that the two countries are negotiating on the issue.

"It has already been more than a month since the incident, and India is still not only illegally remaining on Chinese territory, it is also repairing roads in the rear, stocking up supplies, massing a large number of armed personnel". This is a reference to the 1988 and 1998 agreements stating that Bhutan and China "agree to maintain peace and tranquility in their border areas pending a final settlement on the boundary question, and to maintain status quo on the boundary as before March 1959". It argued that since the boundary between the two neighbours at Sikkim Sector had already been delimited by the 1890 convention between United Kingdom and China, the bilateral mechanism led by the Special Representatives had no scope to discuss the current face-off, reports Deccan Herald.

"If India retreats now, China will save it from further embarrassment".
