Draw lessons from Doklam standoff to avoid similar incidents in future, China tells India
BEIJING: The Chinese military on Thursday criticised Army Chief General Bipin Rawat's recent remarks that Doklam is a disputed territory, asserting that it is very much part of China, and India should draw lessons from the 73-day standoff to avoid similar incidents in the future.
Reacting for the first time to Gen Rawat's comments, Colonel Wu Qian, spokesman of the Chinese ministry of defence, told a media briefing that Doklam is a part of China.
Wu said the Indian side should draw lessons from the incident to avoid similar incidents in the future.
Wu also denied reports that China plans to establish a military base or counter terrorism base in Afghanistan.

I thought it was China which drew the critical lesson that this is Modi''s India of 21st century and not Nehru''s India of 1962 and hence they (Chinese) be better careful by restricting themselves to a bit of sumo wrestling at the borders instead of a full fledged war.

C.H.I.N.E.S.E.....L.I.A.R.S....A.G.A.I.N.... Doklam is a disputed area between China and Bhutan. This is a fact. It is a fact that it is NOT Chinese territory.

No matter how hard India tried, China will not be easy to settle any border dispute because they want to keep it alive and keep on slicing territories as they have been doing over the years.
