Sikkim standoff continues, China's warship detected in Indian Ocean region

India-China War Again? More Tension At Sikkim Border, Beijing Warns Indian Army To Withdraw From Doka La

China, which does not have formal diplomatic ties with Bhutan, has denied that it has violated any treaties. Geng said India should now withdraw troops from the disputed area and create the right conditions to resolve the border stand-off.

Indian naval satellite Rukmini (Gsat-7), long-range maritime patrol aircraft like Poseidon-8I and warships have monitored at least 13 Chinese naval units in the IOR over the last two months.

"Additional construction could skew the local balance of power in China's favor, essentially leaving India more vulnerable to invasion in case of a military confrontation with Beijing".

India-China War Again? More Tension At Sikkim Border, Beijing Warns Indian Army To Withdraw From Doka La

Since the standoff on June 6, when the People's Liberation Army (PLA) destroyed bunkers of the India Army claiming the area belonged to China, Chinese media have carried several pieces warning India for escalating border tension and "reminding" the Indian Army about the 1962 war. "In fact, it is the Indian side that has ignored global law and seriously interfered with China's construction activities". "This is routine. The submarine's presence has nothing to do with the present situation and it has been present in the Indian Ocean for a while now", an Indian Navy official told IANS. A state run daily in China has said that India's objection to China building a road in the Sikkim sector ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the U.S. was aimed at demonstrating to Washington its "firm determination" to "constrain" China's rise.

"The Chinese government is very clear that it wants peaceful resolution at current state of the situation for which withdrawal of Indian troops from the area is a "pre- condition", Luo said".

"In fact, Chinese maps show sizable areas of Bhutan as part of Tibet", Nehru said in the letter accessed by PTI here. Successive Indian governments have also endorsed this, ” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told newsmen in Beijing.

Indian police cast doubt on woman's account of acid attack
A manager at the cafe, Alok Dixit, said it was virtually unheard of that a person would deliberately burn themselves with acid. Independent groups report about 300 documented acid attacks each year in India, though many more likely remain off the record.

A June 27 Global Times op-ed, said China "must force the Indian troops to retreat to the Indian side by all means necessary". Such a thing has happened for the first time in 55 years, the Times of India reported.

In 2012, the special representatives of India and China had worked out a written understanding that "tri-junction boundary points between India, China and third countries will be finalized in consultation with the concerned countries".

The Doklam dispute is the latest in a long-running series of territorial flare-ups between India and China.

General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) Stock Rating Lowered by BidaskClub
General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) produces the Buick Envision exclusively at a factory in Shanghai, mainly for the Chinese market. Floating stock is calculated by subtracting closely-held shares and restricted stock from a firm's total outstanding shares.

The IPCC articles quotes former Indian Air Force Chief Arup Raha's views who believes that China is the single major security challenge to India's growing interest in the Asia-Pacific region.

He said the Chinese side has stated many times that the Sikkim section of the China-India boundary was defined by the Convention Between Great Britain and China Relating to Sikkim and Tibet (1890).

Indian troops do not plan to leave anytime soon because any sign that India condones Chinese construction activity would endanger India's security in the Siliguri corridor, popularly known as "Chicken's Neck", and could cut off India's northeast at a pinch.

Video of Mayweather and McGregor training side by side is shocking
In the caption he wrote: "I know I'm not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I'm not the same fighter I was ten years ago". Even well away from his prime Mayweather is risky , and his speed and accuracy might just prove too much for McGregor.

"Some Indians dare to provoke China and even claim that it's not 1962 anymore probably because they don't think China has military advantages at the border sector where the event took place", he wrote.
