China reacts to India's warning, says 'Doklam belongs to us, no such thing as changing status quo'

The 73-day long India China standoff ended on 28 August past year after Beijing agreed to halt the road building activities at Dokalam in Sikkim Section.

Prabhu said in a media interaction after the meeting that India is likely to send a trade delegation to China shortly, and even Indian pharma companies could find a new market in China, subsequent to stricter drug pricing norms adopted in larger markets like the U.S. and Europe. "If anyone changes the status quo, it will lead to a situation like what happened in Doklam", Bambawale said.

China on Monday asserted that Doklam belongs to it and India should have "learnt lessons" from the stand-off previous year, after India's envoy blamed China for the face-off, saying it happened because Beijing tried to alter the "status quo" in the disputed area. Besides China, the area is also claimed by Bhutan.

Talking about the delimitation of the boundary, Hua said, "China's position is clear and consistent".

He said, "in Doklam area, which we call close proximity or sometimes the face-off site, the area where there was close confrontation or close proximity between Indian and Chinese military troops, that there is no change taking place today".
