Indian troop withdrawal 'precondition' for peace: China

"This time, we must teach New Delhi a bitter lesson", it added.

The flashpoint is the contested border region of Doklam in Bhutan, which is claimed by China as part of its Donglang region.

"The Chinese government attaches great importance to safety and lawful rights and interests of overseas Chinese citizens in accordance with the security condition of the relevant countries", Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters here.

"Although the boundary between the two countries is yet to be settled we have basic consensus on the boundary and there is no dispute between both of us that Doklam belongs to China", he said. Calling the road's construction an act of sovereignty in its own territory, the Chinese foreign ministry has said that it is "utterly unjustifiable" for the Indian side to interfere on territory over which it has no claim.

This All-Girl Robotics Team From Afghanistan Was Denied US Visas
Still, the team built a ball-sorting robot on a shortened timeline; their kit only arrived three weeks ago. Just 112 were granted in May, 2017; 780 visas were issued to visitors from Iraq and 4,067 from Pakistan.

The month-long standoff - and unconfirmed reports of troop buildups on both sides of the border - has also underscored the swiftly deteriorating relations between the two Asian rivals.

"The Indian military can choose to return to its territory with dignity, or be kicked out of the area by Chinese soldiers", said the paper, which is published by the ruling Communist Party flagship People's Daily. China, which does not have formal diplomatic ties with Bhutan, denied the allegations about violating any treaties."Doklam has been a part of China since ancient times".

China and Indian are locked in a dispute in Sikkim sector's Doklam area, also referred to as Donglong by Beijing. In his response the then Chinese premier Zhou Enlai said that the Sikkim-Tibet boundary does not fall within the scope of present discussions. When India incorporated Sikkim as a state in 1975, China had said that they would never recognise this merger.

Since India's independence, the Indian government has repeatedly affirmed the fact that the Sikkim section has been delineated by this convention, he said.

Six people are believed to have been injured in the accident in Harlem, New York which took place at 9.45am local time. Almost three dozen people suffered minor injuries in the derailment, which happened in Harlem just before 10 a.m.

India and China fought war -the Sino-Indian War in 1962 in which India was defeated. "It is up to your government policy (whether to exercise military option)".

The confrontation could spill over into the G-20 summit in Germany later this week where Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi are expected to meet at a gathering of leaders from five emerging economies on the sidelines of the main event in Hamburg.

Indian officials have often called it a "managed relationship" where border disputes and differences over Tibet or Arunachal Pradesh were kept on a slow track of protracted negotiations while the two neighbours fast-tracked their trade and economic relationships to a level that made them critical elements of each other's growth story.

"China and India have been trying to explore ways to resolve boundary question through the Special Representatives mechanism and have jointly taken measures to maintain peace and tranquility in border areas", he said.
