CONFIRMED: China to maintain HIGH COMBAT READINESS in Doklam/Donglang

China will remain on guard against future Indian incursions.

BEIJING (Sputnik) – China will maintain a high combat readiness level in the disputed area of Doklam (Donglang) near the border with India and Bhutan after reaching an agreement with New Delhi on the disengagement of troops, Director of the Information Office of the Chinese Defense Ministry Wu Qian said on Monday.

Earlier in the day, China and India agreed on the accelerated withdrawal of troops from Doklam.

“On August 28, at 14:30 [06:30 GMT] the Indian party disengaged all its vehicles and personnel. The Chinese party at the scene confirmed this fact. The Chinese troops will maintain the high combat readiness level and will decisively protect the territorial sovereignty of the country,” Wu said in a televised address.

The Defense Ministry pointed out that the security and stability of the Chinese-Indian border was vital for regional and global security.

Beijing called on New Delhi to jointly ensure peace and stability in the border area, as well as to promote the development of normal relations between the countries’ Armed Forces.

India and China have been locked in a border standoff since mid-June. The confrontation began after Indian troops blocked Chinese road construction in the disputed area of Doklam near the Sikkim state, where Delhi supports Bhutan’s territorial claims.

China insists that the territorial dispute in Sikkim was resolved as long ago as in 1890, when Beijing and the British Empire signed the so-called Convention of Calcutta, which defined Sikkim’s borders. However, India-backed Bhutan is convinced that Beijing’s attempt to extend a road to the Doklam area goes against a China-Bhutan agreement on maintaining peace in the region until the dispute is resolved.

This is just the Indian Ruling Caste being whores to their Yankee Puppet Masters. It’s all about avoiding the big elephant in the room called the Indian Working Class led by the Dalit Under Class. The National Chauvinist Hindu leadership who are a bunch of corrupt clowns, know the writing is on the wall. They and the Yanks, will attempt to profit as much as possible; before the Eurasian SCO kicks into full swing. By that stage the pretend war between India and China, will be over. The big loser; the US-Deep State of course.

such immature comment, first learn the real reasons behind the standoff, india initiated at the behest of bhutan, another independent sovereign country china wanted to pass on her obor. Also the area is crucial to india as exclusive connectivity of chinese road there will cut india’s warfare capabilities in future wars (not supporting any war) but sometimes show off strength is required to come to compromise

What a load of bollocks! Your understanding of the powers that manipulate the masses, are infantile in the extreme. You are obviously a part of the “War” mind-set that pits ordinary people against one another for the sake of profits for the few. These are the primary victims in all war. But worse, your immature comment, reflects a lack of knowledge on the issue of the Dalit and the Indian working class. This probably makes you unaware of the fact Indian and Pakistani worker organisations; have collaborated for years to stop hostility between their two countries (an issue that is… Read more »
