External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s aggressive statements in the Parliament on Thursday seems fruitless as China on Friday accused India of 'delaying tactics' asking the country to immediately retreat their 'trespassing troops'.

The Chinese Defence Ministry spokesperson Ren Guoqiang, in an official statement on Friday, said, "“India must give up the illusion of its delaying tactic and immediately withdraw its trespassing troops to the Indian side of the boundary.”

The Chinese news agency quoted the spokesperson saying that India must " immediately withdraw its trespassing troops".

He said, “Chinese armed forces have shown a high level of restraint with an eye to the general bilateral relations and the regional peace and stability…. However, goodwill has its principles and restraint has its bottom line.”

The Chinese statement came in response to Indian External Minister Sushma Swaraj's Parliament address where she had said that the standoff between India and China can only be resolved through diplomacy as war would not be helpful.

"We will continue to engage with the Chinese side through diplomatic channels to find a mutually acceptable solution based on the Astana consensus of our leaders. I note the sense of the House is supportive," she had said in her address on Thursday.

Also responding to the questions of Indian Army's capabilities, Sushma said that the military is always ready as they are meant to fight wars, however, 'war cannot resolve problems'.

India and China have been engaged in a stand-off at Doklam where Indian troops had obstructed the construction of a Chinese road in the disputed region that falls in the India-Bhutan-China tri junction.

While China claims that the land belongs to the country, India is supporting the Bhutanese claim on the disputed land. India is also concerned with the road construction as it only serves military operations and has no economic advantages. India is concerned that the road might give the Chinese army an upper hand in the chicken's neck which connects India to its north-eastern states.
