Responding to External Minister’s remark in the Parliament, an editorial in Communist Party-run Chinese Daily Global Times has slammed Sushma Swaraj for lying and rubbished the support of other countries to India in the standoff.

The editorial also ruled out simultaneous withdrawal of troops describing it as India’s fantasy saying, “India should abandon the fantasy of a long-term standoff at Doklam. China will by no means agree to the withdrawal of troops from both sides in order for talks to be held.”

A hard-hitting commentary in the Global Times said India had tested China's patience, whose next move would be war if New Delhi did not withdraw troops from Doklam on the Sikkim section of the Sino-Indian border.

"She was lying to the parliament," the commentary said, referring to Sushma Swaraj.

The Times said the live-fire drill in Tibet by the Chinese Army and movement of huge military supplies to the region was not for "show".

"First, India's invasion of Chinese territory is a plain fact. New Delhi's impetuous action stuns the international community. No other country will support India's aggression.  Second, India's military strength is far behind that of China. If the conflict between China and India escalates to the intensity where their row has to be resolved through military means, India will surely lose," the article said.

"India should by no means count on support from the US and Japan because their support is illusory. If India fancies the idea that it has a strategic card to play in the Indian Ocean, it could not be even more naive. China does hold a lot of cards and can hit India's Achilles' heel, but India has no leverage at all to have a strategic showdown with China.

"We notice that India's stance has recently changed subtly and started to stress that Doklam is 'a tri-junction area of China, India and Bhutan' and attempts to call for 'both sides to withdraw troops' to allow for talks. These changes show New Delhi's guilty conscience.

"China cannot afford to 'lose an inch' of territory. This is the sacred wish and request of the Chinese people. The Chinese government will not breach the fundamental will of the people and the PLA will not let the Chinese people down.

"If New Delhi remains stubborn, India should get prepared for all possibilities from a potentially grave escalation of tension.

On Thursday, Sushma Swaraj in the Parliament had said that Indian troops will withdraw from Doklam if the Chinese do the same. She said India was well-prepared to tackle any eventuality.
