The spokesperson warned India to abandon any impractical illusions. The history of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the past 90 years has demonstrated its increasing capacities and unshakable determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, he said. "It's easier to shake a mountain than the PLA," Mr Wu was quoted as having said.
Last week External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said in Parliament that troops from both the sides should withdraw to facilitate a solution to the ongoing border standoff with China. She had told the Rajya Sabha on Thursday that both Indian and Chinese soldiers should withdraw from the Doklam region in the tri-junction with Bhutan. The stand-off has continued for more than a month now. She said that any unilateral altering of the border by China will amount to a ``direct threat’’ to India’s security concerns. (UNI)
