India on Friday said that it has conveyed to the Chinese government that the latter’s construction of road in the disputed Doklam area ‘would represent a significant change of status quo with serious security implications for India.’

“India is deeply concerned at the recent Chinese actions,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.

“Where the boundary in the Sikkim sector is concerned, India and China had reached an understanding also in 2012 reconfirming their mutual agreement on the basis of alignment. Further discussions regarding finalisation of the boundary have been taking place under the Special Representatives framework,” India said.

“It is essential that all parties concerned display utmost restraint and abide by the respective bilateral understandings not to change the status quo unilaterally. It is also important that the consensus reached between India and China through the Special Representatives process in scrupulously respected by both sides,” it added.

“India cherishes peace and tranquility in the India-China border areas. It has not come easily. Both sides have worked hard to establish institutional framework to discuss all issues to ensure peace and tranquility in the India-China border areas. India is committed to working with China to find peaceful resolution of all issues in the border areas through dialogue,” the Ministry said.

Beijing had earlier alleged that Indian border troops had crossed the boundary line in the Sikkim sector of the China-India boundary and entered Chinese territory.

As India and China faced off over the road construction dispute, Beijing Thursday said withdrawal of Indian troops from the Doklam plateau was a prerequisite for any dialogue between the two countries, and to prevent any escalation.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) also warned Army chief General Bipin Rawat to “stop clamouring for war”, dismissing as “extremely irresponsible” his recent remarks that India was ready for a “two-and-a-half front war”.

              Chinese leadership is rattled by US-India close relationship. US-India-Russia coming together will stop Chinese belligerent moves all together and as side affect terrorism will also start subsiding.

                        BJP / RSS are strengthening India's Foundations eroded by at least Fifty years of Vote Bank politics and looting by the Dynasty and their Caste Parties, allied to them. You do need to take the trouble to read up on India's modern history since 1947.... unless you are Sthani under a 'nom de plume'.

                              Chinese are not militarily powerful. All the Sun Tzu 36 stratagems and Shaolin are all hyped. If they were so powerful, then a small country like an could not have devasted China militarily. The British defeated them in opim wars just like the Plassey battle. Chinese lost most wars due to betrayal by their own rather than enemy's skills. The people of China are now fed up with Communism. They want freedom and democracy
