PM Modi and Xi will not meet at G20 Summit

Though no bilateral fixed, Narendra Modi, Xi Jinping will meet at BRICS event in Hamburg

At a regular news briefing on Thursday, foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said China hoped "India can immediately withdraw the border troops to the Indian side of the boundary to uphold the peace and tranquillity of the China and India border areas".

Raking up the Dalai Lama issue, the editorial said 'China was wary of India playing the Dalai Lama card, but this card is already overplayed and will exert no additional effect on the Tibet question'. Tensions escalated after New Delhi opposed a road construction by Beijing along the border that belongs to Bhutan, but claimed by China.

He maintained that given the uncertainty in the global politics it is in the interest of India and China to be more predictable, to which Xi seemed to agree.

China and its state-run media have been aggressive over the border impasse, even threatening war.

Claiming that the India was trespassing in its land, The Chinese embassy in New Delhi said that the Indian side should pull back to their side respect the worldwide laws governing the border.

The border stand-off on a plateau next to the mountainous Indian state of Sikkim, which borders China, has ratcheted up tension between the neighbouring giants, who share a 3,500-kilometre frontier, large parts of which are disputed.

The editorial strongly reiterated that "New Delhi's regional hegemony is swelling to a tipping point" and that India "has to pay for its provocations".




"We firmly believe that the face-off in the Donglong area will end up with the Indian troops in retreat".

The state-run media has also opined that Beijing should reconsider its stance over the Sikkim issue.

CONTRARY to the Chinese Government's assertion that Jawaharlal Nehru had accepted the 1890 Sino-British treaty over Sikkim to buttress Beijing's claim over the Doka La area, the former Prime Minister had pointed out to China that it was claiming sizeable part of Bhutan's territory.

Despite a litany of grievances on both sides, frequent clashes on the 3,500-kilometer (2,174-mile) shared border have been the most prominent irritant in efforts to build stable bilateral ties, said Zhang Li, an expert on China-India relations at Sichuan University.

While Modi and the Chinese president will hold bilateral meetings with other leaders at the summit, they will not face each other directly. And doubtlessly such irresponsible acts and rhetoric reflect the "strategic anxiety" over China's rise harboured by some Indian politicians and their apprehensions about the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative.

But India's defence minister, Arun Jaitley, has warned that the India of 2017 is not the India of 1962 and the country will defend its territorial integrity. Although India always treats China as its biggest rival, China does not think so as India lags far behind China, Song Zhongping, a Beijing-based military expert, was quoted as saying by the daily.
