China upset with Gen Rawat’s remark about shifting attention to northern border
BEIJING: China objected on Monday to remarks by the Army Chief, Gen. Bipin Rawat, about defending Indian territory, complaining that the comments were "unconstructive" and went against the consensus....
Gen. Rawat recently said the time had come to shift attention to the northern border in view of China's increased aggressiveness. "China is a powerful country but we are not a weak nation," he said in a manner military leaders speak to boost troop morale ahead of Army Day. The statement was not unusual.
Responding to the remarks, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said, "The Doklam area belongs to China. The Sikkim section of the China-India boundary was delimited... China will continue to exert its rights in the Doklam area and firmly safeguard territorial sovereignty."

You Chinese rougues say what you want and do what you want. You illegally try to occupy seas not yours, and land not yours. You dont have dem*cracy in your country. And yet the mere statement from the India Army chief is objectionable ? What fooking hypocrites and fakes you slit eyed scum are.

Chinese need to digest bitter truth that India is no pushover. Nothing wrong in Rawat's remarks as it holds water. Chinese also better get used to aggressive posturing as it did in Doklam standoff. And finally Salami Slicing will see Chinese slice peel .

General Rowat shouldn't make such irresponsible statements that alarms our enemy. India should build up its capabilities quietly without coming to the attention of international community.

But , China should not forget that India has it's own strength...We may be less rich than China but we are happy ...
