Now, China’s state-backed media threatens standoffs beyond Doklam
NEW DELHI: State-backed Chinese media have been spoiled for the next level and now threaten the confrontation not only in Doklam +, but also in other areas along the real control line (LAC) .
China’s hardline, Global Times said that Beijing “does not recognize land under effective control of India is an indigenous territory” and said China could take “other measures against it” throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
In fact, Beijing has already stated its intentions for a demonstration of strength of several fronts.
On Friday, the Chinese army conducted live + shooting exercises in the Tibet Autonomous Region, southwest China, said China Central Television (CCTV).
The brigade that led to the exercises comes from the PLA Tibetan Military Command, which maintains the FTA in several sections linking the Tibetan mountainous region.
This conflict between India and China, however, began Doklam in the Sikkim sector after China violated the border of the region, which is in the territory of Bhutan, and began to build a road in mid-June.
And far from retreating, Global Times urges Beijing to move ahead with construction, in addition to “countermeasures” throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
“China has to continue to strengthen the construction of the border and to accelerate the development and construction of troops in the Doklam region. These are legitimate actions of a sovereign country,” said an article in Global Times.
The publication – led by the Communist Party of the country – said then that Beijing “is not afraid of war to safeguard sovereignty either, and prepare for a long-term confrontation.

“China can take new measures against it over the real control line.If India raises conflicts in several places, it faces a total confrontation, with China throughout the region,” he said.
The Chinese State-backed publication also said that the deployment of resources in remote border areas would result in the economic growth of these regions “as well as safeguarding the integration of Chinese territory.”
Already, “… the road and railroad in the Tibetan region spread near the border with India, Nepal and Bhutan,” the article says.
