Aug. 4, 2017 -- A Foreign Ministry photo released on Wednesday shows Indian troops encroaching on Chinese territory.
Aug. 4, 2017 -- The military has been acting with "great restraint" regarding India's incursion into China's Donglang (Doklam) area, and strongly demands India to immediately withdraw its border troops, Defense Ministry said.
Since the incident on June 18, China has been acting with goodwill and using diplomatic channels to resolve the issues, the ministry's spokesman Ren Guoqiang said in an online statement on Thursday night.
India's action has violated the 1890 Convention Between Great Britain and China Relating to Sikkim and Tibet, which stated that the Donglang area is on the Chinese side of the Sino-Indian border.
"India has seriously undermined China's sovereignty and territorial integrity," he said. India also violated the United Nations Charter and "brutally trample" on basic international law and basic principles of international relations.
