    Chinese military called on India to withdraw its troops from the Himalayan mountains, saying that New Delhi “should abandon unrealistic illusions” of owning the disputed territory as Beijing is ready to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — Chinese Defense Ministry’s spokesman Wu Qian urged India on Monday to withdraw its troops from the territory in the Himalayan mountains and cease provocations for the sake of regional stability and peace amid escalation of standoff between the two countries on their disputed border.

    “We strongly urge India to immediately withdraw servicemen who violated the border, which constitutes an essential precondition for the settlement of the situation on the border,” Wu said.

    The spokesperson noted that “peace and tranquility in the border areas, which are also linked to regional stability, are in line with the interests of both countries.”

    “We call on India to take all the necessary effective measures to correct the past mistakes, stop any provocations and, together with China, move towards to the joint protection of peace and tranquility in the border areas,” Wu stressed.

    The Indian side “should abandon unrealistic illusions” as China will strive to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security, the spokesperson said.
