This week, Chinese troops pelted Indian soldiers with stones in another disputed border territory near Ladakh.
As per the agreements, China is to provide hydrological forecasts to India from June 1 to October 15 every year for the Yarlung Zangbo River which reaches India as Brahmaputra and floods the North-East, Assam and neighbouring States during monsoon.
Hua said, “There is no regional dispute in the Donglong region of Dokalam and the boundary has been set and both parties have accepted it. The last bilateral meeting between the two countries on this was held in 2016”, said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.
There was stone pelting also that caused minor injuries to people on both sides.
The Army officers of India and China had met on Wednesday in Leh’s Chusul sector where Indian side raised the issue of attempt by Chinese soldiers to enter Indian territory along the banks of Pangong lake. Meanwhile, there has been a steady stream of critical commentary from Chinese officials and state media, including most recently a propaganda video that used racist visuals to mock Indians.
Eight weeks into the Doklam stand-off, Japan’s open support to India’s stance – that Chinese road construction would be tinkering with the status quo – is being seen as a big deal.
The video went viral in no time, inviting strong criticism from the Indian social media users.
The video includes appearances by a man in a turban, sunglasses and false beard who speaks in an exaggerated Indian accent over canned laughter, it said.
Reacting to the campaign in India, the government-backed English-language paper China Daily said in an August 14 opinion piece that boycotting Chinese goods will hurt the Indian economy. “As per my knowledge, this year, China hasn’t shared any data”, Kumar said.
However, he said that the non-sharing of data by China can not be linked to conflict to “technical issues” for now.
He also noted that the government has asked Chinese handset makers to share information about their phones’ security procedures. Later, the MoU was renewed periodically, according to Water Resources Ministry sources. “I want to remind him not to randomly make comments before clarifying the facts”, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying in Beijing.
Japan has supported India’s stand on Doklam standoff saying that Indian’s troops are there as India and Bhutan have a treaty between them.
