A reporter asked: The Chinese side yesterday released the fact that the Indian border guard entered the Chinese territory at the Sikkim section of the Sino-Indian border and China ‘s position. The document mentioned that on June 16, China was carrying out road construction in the Donglang area.The Indian side was notified. What is the purpose of the construction?
What is the specific situation of the notification?
What feedback does India have?
Geng Shuang said that on June 16, China carried out road construction in the Donglang area at the top of the Chinese side of the Sikkim section of the China-India border, in order to improve local traffic and facilitate local herders’ grazing and border 武汉夜生活网 patrols.
This is China’s normal activity in its own territory, and it is completely legitimate.
Geng Shuang said that out of goodwill, the Chinese side notified the Indian side twice in advance through the border defense meeting mechanism on May 18 and June 8 respectively, and the Indian side did not give any feedback.
On June 18, more than 270 Indian border guards carried weapons and two bulldozers, crossing the Sikkim section boundary line more than 100 meters at the Dokala Pass, entering Chinese territory to obstruct Chinese road construction activities.
Geng Shuang said that as of the afternoon of August 2, there were still 48 people in the Indian army plus a bulldozer stranded illegally in Chinese territory.
In addition, the Indian army has a large number of armed personnel gathered on the border line and above the border line.
Geng Shuang said that the Donglang area is located on the Chinese side of the boundary line stipulated in the 1890 Sino-British Conference Tibetan-Indian Treaty.
The Indian border forces entered the Chinese territory from the Indian side of the border, and their illegal cross-border behavior is clear and cannot be denied.
The Indian side ignored the existing relevant mechanisms and channels between China and India and, without any communication with China, directly sent border guards to carry weapons and equipment across the border into Chinese territory and stayed and not withdrawn. Their actions were irresponsible, regardless of consequences.
How many members of the Indian army themselves violated the law and stayed in China. Their nature is a serious violation of China’s territorial sovereignty, a serious violation of the UN Charter, and constitutes an internationally wrongful act. The Indian side should bear corresponding responsibilities.
Another reporter asked: In response to China’s position paper issued on August 2, the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that peace and tranquility in the India-China border region are an important substitute for the smooth development of mutual relations. What’s your comment?
Geng Shuang said that the Indian side must now call peace, and we must not only listen to its words, but also watch its actions.
The Chinese side believes that the relevant facts cannot be ignored: First, the Indian side, in good faith, informed the Indian side twice in advance on May 18 and June 8 that it had never been in a month.Sending back any information to China through any channel, instead sending armed personnel and equipment directly across the border to obstruct it on June 18, this is by no means for peace.
Second, it has been more than a month since the incident occurred, and the Indian side is still illegally stranded in Chinese territory, rebuilding roads, hoarding supplies and gathering large numbers of armed personnel. This is by no means for peace.
Third, when the fact that the Indian side illegally crossed the border was conclusive, instead of deeply introspecting the mistakes, the Indian side concocted the so-called security vertical, the issue of the junction of the three countries, and responded to various strange theories at the request of Bhutan to act for its own wrongFind excuses, this is by no means for peace.
Fourth, India has refused to withdraw its personnel and equipment beyond its borders, but has made unreasonable demands on China and has no sincerity to solve the problem. This is by no means for peace.
Geng Shuang said that if the Indian side really cherishes peace, it should immediately retreat the illegal border crossing personnel to the border line and align the Indian side.
