India should have learnt lessons from Doklam, says China

On Monday, China asserted that Doklam belongs to it and India should have learnt lessons from the stand-off last year.

While reacting to India’s ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale’s remarks, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said, “Doklam belongs to China because we have historical conventions.”

 

She added, “China’s activities there are within our sovereign rights. There is no such thing as changing status quo.”

 

“Last year thanks to our concerted efforts and our wisdom we properly resolved this issue. We hope the Indian side could learn some lessons from this and stick to the historical conventions and work with China to ensure the atmosphere in the border areas is conducive for the development of bilateral ties,” she said.
