Last week, China released a video titled '7 sins of India', about the Doklam border standoff.
"On June 18, Indian troops carrying weapons and driving two bulldozers crossed the Sikkim sector and entered Chinese territory. It obstructed Chinese road works in the region causing a standoff between the two sides," says the Xinhua video.
"It (India) should remain sober and guard against any future poor judgment... Any spiral into some kind of hostile rivalry could be disastrous," the video warned.
Sino-India frictions raise potential for open conflict: CRS
Intensified frictions between India and China raise the potential for an open conflict and could serve as an "impetus" for further US-India strategic cooperation that could have implications for Beijing, Press Trust of India quoted a Congressional report as saying.
The brief, two-page report by bipartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) titled 'China-Border Tensions at Doka La' was released on August 9 but reported by the PTI on August 19.
"Intensified frictions raise the potential for open conflict and could serve as an impetus for further US-India strategic cooperation that could have implications for China."
Bruce Vaughn, Specialist in Asian Affairs, the report writer, pointed out that the border standoff at Doka La marks a shift in China-India ties that likely has more to do with the broader relationship than with the Himalayan border alone. "An intensification of rivalry between China and India appears to be underway," he wrote.
"For New Delhi, China's efforts to block India from membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, develop the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor through a part of Kashmir claimed by India, protect a Pakistan-based terrorist from UN sanctions, and develop China's strategic presence in the Indian Ocean littoral have combined to increase New Delhi's frustration with and suspicion of China," Vaughn wrote.
"China has been wary of India's decisions to not attend China's Belt and Road summit in May 2017, allow the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh, and continue to develop strategic ties with the US. Given these larger dynamics, as well as specific statements and posturing on Doka La, it may be some time before the dispute is fully resolved," the report concluded.
