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.
