China considering military action against India: Report

The blatant move contravenes the 1890 Convention between Great Britain and China Relating to Sikkim and Tibet, which has clearly delimited this part of the boundary between the Tibet Autonomous Region and India's Sikkim State.
New Delhi has expressed concern over China's road building activities in the border areas, apprehending that it may allow Chinese troops to cut India's access to its northeastern states.
It said that "the rhetoric that India upheld, namely that China and India have been in discussions on making the boundary in the Sikkim Sector an "early harvest" which proves the area is disputed, is a sophistry".
Sr. Col. Ren said that China was firmly demanding that Indian troops must unilaterally withdraw from the Doklam area, as a prerequisite for a dialogue. China has also employed "lawfare", selectively invoking a colonial-era accord, while ignoring its own violations - cited by Bhutan and India - of more recent bilateral agreements. One of those states is Arunachal Pradesh, a swath of land the size of SC now administered by India, but which China claims nearly in its entirety. It has nothing to do with India.
Matters concerning the China-India-Bhutan boundary tri-junction have nothing to do with this incident.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has reiterated that India's road map is peace and talks are going on to resolve the issue diplomatically.
Despite strong protests and several rounds of negotiations, India refuses to hand over the occupied land to Nepal.
India says the Chinese action to construct the road was unilateral and changes the status quo.
India's speculation of China's possible military operation in Doklam and Indian government's statements over the standoff, all indicate the country's guilty conscience, Hu pointed out. After the nation's media claimed that it was New Delhi provoking Beijing and not the other way round, it has now said that India is trying to turn Bhutan into its protectorate.
The 1962 Sino-Indian war nudged Thimphu even closer to New Delhi, culminating in a formal security guarantee announced by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in 1963. Is the stand-off a prelude to a regional are-alignment, with Bhutan gearing up to become the latest entrant to China's billion-dollar projects?
The countdown to a clash between the two forces has begun, and the clock is ticking away the time to what seems to be an inevitable conclusion. "And that could be the single most far-reaching outcome of the standoff at Sikkim".

China's top diplomat on the boundary issue, Wang Wenli, told a visiting Indian media delegation that Bhutan has conveyed to Beijing through the diplomatic channels that the area of the standoff is not its territory.
Indian-Chinese relations are complex and will be getting even more complex as time passes.
Hu, who releases short videos on the Global Times website nearly every week, referred to Indian media reports that despite all the angry rhetoric, Indian security authorities are reasonably sure China wouldn't risk starting a war, not even a small scale military operation.
