China says there is no stand-off on border, but confirms watch tower construction
BEIJING: China said on Monday that there is no stand-off between the People’s Liberation Army and Indian troops on the India-China border as has been reported in the Indian media. It asked the Indian government to clarify the situation.
“As far as I know, there is no such face off in the border area. Chinese troops are performing their duties on the Chinese side of the border,” Hong Lei, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said at the regular briefing on Monday.
Indian reports said a joint patrol of the Indian Army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police spotted the People’s Liberation Army building a watch-tower close to the mutually-accepted “border patrolling line” near Burtse, which is part of the Depsang plains in the northern part of eastern Ladakh, on Friday. This led to a stand-off as the Indian Army personnel at the spot called for reinforcements.
Hong suggested that the “Indian side can make clarification on this matter in order to maintain peace and tranquility in the area”.
I dont understand why our Govt is quiet? Modi was roaring like a Lion before elections, Now he is quieter than a mouse. Modi doesnt talk on kashmir subject, he doesnt talk on terrorism, he doesnt talk on Pakistan, he doesnt talk on corruption, now he is quiet on chinese incursion.
If the Chinese construct a watch tower on their side, India should reciprocate with one on their side so that the soldiers are on level talking terms.
All readers, Media is a liar rouge and ultimate anti national at present in India.
Don’t believe in what these media writes.
This is what will happen if we do not build up our infrastructure in our border areas. I beg the congress MP’s to shun the negative campaign and focus on India’s security. If not, like the pakistanis , we will also have to surrender our mother land.

These chinese should not be trusted … they will back stab one day.
Not a stand off? Well, what are Chinese gonna watch from this tower? Gang rapes in India? LMFAO
Media flaring up the issue…..
Indian Media is funded by international weapon companies to create tension between India and China. War brings death and destruction only. Liar media must go to hell.
dont trust this dragon ,,,he is friend of pakistan
China should be cautious and careful when dealing with its powerful neighbors. It cannot harbor an enemy in India. That would prove very costly to her. It cannot afford to push India towards forming an alliance with US, Japan and south east nations. It has already done a lot by arming Pakistan with nukes and vetoing India’s UNSC permanent seat claim
China can never be trusted.
What about the case when India made an advanced landing ground on Indian side? Why the Chinese army disturbed India and she had to abort it because of indirect pressure from the Chinese?
CHINA IS AVOIDING AN AGREEMENT ON THE BORDER ISSUE SO THAT THEY CAN CONTINUE INCHING INTO INDIAN TERRITORY. INDIA SHOULD PULL CHINA’S BLUFF AND OBJECT TO ANY SUCH CONSTRUCTION! JAI HIND!
