Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

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.
