The Chinese military will remain vigilant and defend national territory and sovereignty following the military stand-off with India, a Chinese military spokesperson said on August 28.
“Peace and stability along the China-India border concerns regional peace and stability and accords with the common interests of the two countries’ peoples,” Wu Qian, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense, said.
India has withdrawn its personnel and equipment from Donglang after the two-month friction.
“We remind India to draw lessons from the stand-off, abide by established treaties and the basic principles of international law, and work with China to safeguard peace and stability along the border and promote the healthy development of the two militaries,” Wu said.
He added that the Chinese military is confident and capable of safeguarding national sovereignty, safety and the interests of development. It is also capable of making a bigger contribution to world peace.
