Unconditional withdrawal from Doklam only option for India, says Chinese media

“If the Modi government refuses to stop, it will push its country into a war that India has no power to control”, it went on. He said that the Chinese army will defend the country’s territorial sovereignty and security interests.

Earlier on Thursday, the Chinese foreign and defence ministries have released statements on the illegal trespass of Indian troops into Chinese territory, vowing to take all necessary measures to make India withdraw its troops unconditionally.

The tension between China and India started in June when Indian soldiers entered Doklam area situated between Bhutan and China and they stopped Chinese soldiers from building a road there.
