China says In­dia build­ing up troops amid bor­der stand off

Weekend Mirror - - EDITORIAL -

(Reuters) - China’s For­eign Min­istry on Thurs­day said In­dia has been build­ing up troops and re­pair­ing roads along its side of the bor­der amid an in­creas­ingly tense stand-off in a re­mote fron­tier re­gion be­side the Hi­malayan king­dom of Bhutan.

The stand-off on a plateau next to the moun­tain­ous In­dian state of Sikkim, which borders China, has ratch­eted up ten­sion be­tween the neigh­bors, who share a 3,500-km (2,175-mile) fron­tier, large parts of which are dis­puted.
