India should learn from Doklam, warns Chinese army officer

Beijing: ‘India should take a lesson from Doklam and ensure that such situations do not arise in the future,’ warned the Chinese defence ministry spokesman colonel ‘Wu Qian’. China has been warning India on the background of the statements made by the Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat about Doklam and China. The statement of colonel ‘Wu Qian’ becomes a part of the same series.

India-learn-from-DoklamGeneral Rawat had said that the Chinese army is still in the northern Doklam region and this is a disputed land between China and Bhutan. On the Army day, General Rawat had warned China that even if China is a big military power, India also is not weak. There are strong reactions coming from China about the statements. Colonel ‘Wu Qian’ has objected to Indian army chief’s statements. He claims that these statements are a proof that the Indian army had illegally invaded in our border in Doklam.

The Indian army chief had suggested that India should improve co-operation with Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan to counter China. This was also criticised by Colonel Wu. This stance of the Indian army chief is of the cold war era, commented colonel Qian. It is seen that in the last few days China is issuing fresh threats to India over the Doklam issue. There are reports that China is doing fresh army deployments in the Doklam area and also has started construction activities there.

On the background of these news, the Indian army chief has assured the countrymen that the army is closely watching the situation in Doklam
