China Chides Japan for supporting India on Doklam dispute

Army Navy IAF chiefs review country's security preparedness

Currently, India's demand is for both sides troops to withdraw a certain distance together, after which talks can happen. On Tuesday, soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) tried to enter the Indian side in two areas- Finger Four and Finger Five- twice but on both the occasions their attempts were thwarted by alert Indian troops.

Amid the tension between India and China, Japan has supported India's approach on Doklam stand-off near Sikkim, media reports said on Friday.

In the context of the Ladakh incident, he said two border personnel meetings (BPMs) had taken place between Indian border guards and Chinese troops recently.

Japan has another reason for supporting India against China. China's exports to India totalled United States dollars 58.33 billion, registering a meagre increase of 0.2 pc compared to USD 58.25 billion in 2015. In the 12th Five Year Plan alone 30 pc of equipments for capacity generation were imported from China.

On Aug. 9, Indian Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman informed parliament that anti-dumping duties are in force on 93 products imported from China.

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, Navy Chief Admiral Suneel Lanba and IAF Chief BS Dhanoa today discussed security situation, including the ongoing Doklam face-off with China, in a high level meeting held under the Chiefs of Staff Committee structure. "Now Chinese companies must reconsider the risks of investing in India amid strained bilateral trade ties, and India should also be prepared for the possible consequences of its ill-considered action", it warned. "For this year, as far as I know, we have not received hydrological data from Chinese side", Raveesh Kumar, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said in New Delhi. However, it refused to link it to Doklam standoff between the 2 countries.

In another move to outwit China, India has also invited the heads of state or government of all 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that includes Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam - all bordering China.

This was also pointed out by the ministry spokesperson, when asked about the alleged transaction. "[If they don't], they will face consequences", Jha said.

Chinese companies have invested mostly in telecom, power, engineering and infrastructure sectors.

He said that BPMs were part of confidence building measures between the two countries.

The Doklam issue has given rise to calls for boycotting Chinese products.

Satish Kumar, national president of the Swadesh Jagran Manch, an affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayemsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, has been running a campaign asking Indians not to buy Chinese goods, so as to protect local industry and reset a trade deficit of more than Dollars 51 billion.

"It contained racist depictions of Indians and insulted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's administration".

With India-China stand-off at Doklam, near the Sikkim-Tibet-Bhutan tri-junction still continuing, Chinese Australians, in their flashy super cars, organised a auto rally in Sydney, Australia, to protest against India on its 71st Independence Day. China's exports to India accounted for just 2% of its total export volume.
