Putting off arranging Indian pilgrims' travel to Tibet out of security concerns: China
According to Foreign Ministry spokesperson Gen Shuang and Lu Kang, recently, the Indian border troops crossed the China-India boundary at the Sikkim section and entered the Chinese territory, obstructing Chinese border troops' normal activities in Doklam. The Chinese side has taken proportionate measures in response, including putting off arranging for Indian officially-organized pilgrims' entry through Nathu-la mountain pass in the Sikkim section of the China-India boundary out of security concerns.
The spokesperson says that China is sincere about developing friendly relations with India but is also resolute in safeguarding its own sovereignty and interests. The Indian side should take swift and correct measures to bring those who crossed into China back to the Indian side of the boundary, conduct thorough investigation into this and safeguard peace and tranquility of the Sikkim section.
As for what is coming next, the spokesperson says it is a matter of course that the Indian side should take necessary measures to alleviate the tension caused by their border troops' illegal entry, and create conditions for their pilgrims' travel to Tibet via the Nathu-la pass.
The Sikkim section of the China-India boundary was defined by the Convention between Great Britain and China Relating to Sikkim and Tibet in 1890. The Indian government has repeatedly confirmed that in written forms since India's independence, recognizing that it concurs with China on the boundary alignment at the Sikkim section.
