Sushma Swaraj lied to parliamentarians in India, says China's state-run Global Times

Sikkim standoff: Pak game plan in focus as envoy meets Chinese ambassador to India

The lady foreign minister was lying to the parliamentarians in India, because firstly, India invaded the territory of China and it is a fact that New Delhi's adventures made the global community surprised that no country would support it.

United States commerce secretary Wilbur Ross said that China's $347 trade deficit with his country was not the result of natural market forces but the absence of "fair, equitable and reciprocal" relationship between the two countries. That the focus of the meetings was the current border stand-off at the India-Bhutan-China tri-junction in Doklam speaks for itself.

"The larger battle is essentially about strategic competition for geopolitical space and influence in Asia between India and China", said Nirupama Rao, who served as India's ambassador to China and retired as the government's top-ranking diplomatic official. New Delhi has expressed concern over the road building, apprehending that it may allow Chinese troops to cut India's access to its northeastern states.

India and China have been involved in a dispute in the Doklam region along the Sikkim border for over a month now.

Sushma had told the parliament on Thursday that China had attempted to "unilaterally" change the status quo at the Bhutan trijunction, following which the Indian troops intervened.

The blast took place around 10.30pm local time (4.30pm GMT) in Bixby, which lies around 15 miles to the south of Tulsa. The bomb also pierced the canopy over the office. "But it's quite ironic that that happened".

Speaking in the upper house of parliament, Ms Swaraj said that "India has not said anything unreasonable" and that "all countries are in India's support". India moved troops into the disputed area to stop the Chinese incursion, resulting in a face-to-face standoff between the forces on both sides. The editorial also hinted that New Delhi had become nervous over the stand-off. It is true that at the instance of some global powers, India has embarked upon a policy of encirclement of China, considering it an enemy and military and economic rival.

"China can not afford to "lose an inch" of territory". We want that if a dialogue is held, and if talks are to be held, then both the countries should withdraw their troops.

"We would encourage them to engage in direct dialogue aimed at reducing tensions", Nauert said. "China's military spending is four times that of India where its GDP volume is five times that of India", it says. "This is the first real India-China standoff in a third country".

Bishop urged a peaceful resolution of the dispute, and warned a further escalation could lead to a unsafe "miscalculation" or "misjudgment", but she also made it abundantly clear that Australia is intent on deepening ties with India as part of a US-led anti-China bloc. "We hope India won't repeat this mistake", it said.
