Referring to the month-long standoff in the Doklam Plateau, an editorial piece in Global Times said, "India is so narrow-minded that it believes a road along the border can determine the strategic posture between China and India".

Produced by privately owned media organization India Today the Bugs Bunny-style video follows Xi, dressed in military fatigues, as he attempts to get the attention of a chuckling Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Hiramatsu's is also accredited as Ambassador to Bhutan. In mid-June, Chinese soldiers attempted to construct a motorable road in Doklam which was stopped by their Indian counterparts.

The revenue department has issued a notification imposing United States dollars 2,637 per tonne as anti-dumping duty on imports of polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE) from China.

As a result, Mr. Hiramatsu's comments, which have sparked off a war of words with Beijing, are seen as direct criticism of China's position and unqualified support for India on the Doklam issue.

When China and India have shown no signs of deescalating the tensions in the Doklam area, Russian Federation is trying to keep its balance between China and India.

The Indian government is moving simultaneously on the telecoms sector, demanding higher security standards in an area dominated by Chinese makers of equipment and smartphones.

Japan's call for a united opposition to Chinese moves had come in the backdrop of Beijing's unilateral move to change status quo in the East China Sea where it had imposed Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ).

A press release has been issues by MEA that clearly says that India will continue to have talks with China on mutually acceptable solution.

"I am not aware of the information I can tell you that the Chinese border troops are always committed to maintaining peace and tranquillity of the India-China border", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said on August 16.

The Japanese envoy in his interview said his country understood that the area was disputed between China and Bhutan, and that both countries recognised the existence of a dispute. "I would not like to touch upon the situation, on how troops are being mobilised", he said.
