India troops massing on border amid stand off with China


China’s Foreign Ministry has accused India of building up troops and repairing roads along its side of the border amid an increasingly tense stand-off.

“It has already been more than a month since the incident, and India is still not only illegally remaining on Chinese territory, it is also repairing roads in the rear, stocking up supplies, massing a large number of armed personnel,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

In mid-June, a remote area called the Dolam plateau in the Himalayas where the boundaries of China, India and Bhutan meet made headlines when Indian and Chinese troops began a standoff over a road construction project.

According to Indian officials, about 300 soldiers from both side are facing each other about 150 meters (yards) apart on the plateau.
