China's Foreign Ministry provided details of the July 28 meeting between India's National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval and his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi. Again, this is contrary to India's stance that the PLA construction party had entered the Doklam area on June 16, without notification, and attempted to work on a road.

China on Wednesday said India should not make territorial claims on Bhutan's behalf in the Doklam standoff even as it maintained that it valued good neighbourly and friendly relations with New Delhi and to keep peace on the border.

A detailed statement from the Chinese foreign ministry on Wednesday has said that India may not only have to scale down its forces in Doklam, but also pull back all its troops to end the military standoff in the area.

On 18 June, over 270 Indian border troops, carrying weapons and driving two bulldozers, crossed the boundary in the Sikkim Sector at the Duo Ka La (Doka La) pass and advanced more than 100 metres into the Chinese territory to obstruct the road building of the Chinese side, causing tension in the area. The boundary in the Sikkim Sector has always been delimited by the 1890 Convention, which was signed between then China and Great Britain.

"China did not cross the boundary in its road building, and it notified India in advance in full reflection of China's goodwill". It has nothing to do with India.

India has rubbished China's claim that the number of troops have been reduced at Doklam.

The ministry argued saying, "To cross a delimited boundary and enter the territory of a neighboring country on the grounds of so-called "security concerns", for whatever activities, runs counter to the basic principles of global law and basic norms governing worldwide relations".

India's fresh statement in response to the Chinese 15-page fact sheet was essentially a one liner without rebutting Beijing point by point. An official said that there is has no escalation and the standoff continues.

Commenting on the military stand-off at Doklam plateau, India said its stance remains the same as articulated in the press release issued on June 30, almost a fortnight after the controversy erupted near Sikkim border.

Answering the Indian colleague's words that the Doklam area remains disputed territory, Zhou Bo said that "Bhutan participated in 24 rounds of talks and never questioned that this was an essential part of China".

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the paper was meant to "further explain to the worldwide community the truth about Indian army's intrusion, and fully state the position of the Chinese government".

"No country should ever underestimate the resolve of the Chinese government and people to defend China's territorial sovereignty". China also indicated that the two sides are in touch to resolve the dispute in the Sikkim sector of the border.

It reiterated China's stand that its government "will take all necessary measures" to safeguard its rights and interests.

India has said Beijing's action to "unilaterally determine tri-junction points" violated a 2012 India-China pact which says the boundary would be decided by consulting all the concerned parties.
