Chinese Editorial Asks India to Back Down in Border Dispute

BEIJING – India is playing with fire and trying China’s patience by occupying its territory, an editorial in People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, warned on Thursday.

The editorial calls for India to immediately withdraw its troops and bulldozers from the region of Doklam, an area bordering the two countries and Bhutan, and claims that the incursion, ongoing for almost two months, reveals India’s geopolitical ambitions.

“India has long sought to dominate Asia,” the editorial said, adding that the country was using Bhutan to realize its “own superpower dream.”

China accuses India of illegally entering with 270 troops and two bulldozers to obstruct the construction of a road in Doklam, a territory controlled by Beijing but claimed by Bhutan, a country who considers India its main ally in the region.

The editorial suggested India should immediately withdraw its troops from the area to defuse the crisis.

It also reminded India of the cooperation that both countries have fostered under organizations like the BRICS association, a platform for cooperation between major emerging economies, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Last week, experts cited by Global Times, of the same media group as People’s Daily, had said the Chinese army could launch a military operation against the Indian troops within two weeks.

The crisis comes ahead of the 9th BRICS summit in September that will bring together top leaders from India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa in China.
