The Official spokesperson of the Chinese government has made clear that Beijing will not give up an inch of the territory but wants “good neighbourly relations” with New Delhi, the spokesperson also warned India must not be “fooled by Washington”.

According to the reports published in the Indian Media, these comments came before the talks between Indian and Chinese army commanders on the stand-off along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.

“China does not want to fall foul of India. Good-neighbourly relations have been China’s basic national policy over the past decades, and China firmly adheres to a peaceful resolution of border disputes. We have no reason to make India our enemy,” the editorial of the Global Times said on Friday.

“But China will not give up any inch of territory. Once India makes a strategic misjudgment and nibbles away at China’s territory, China will never condone it. China is bound to make strong countermeasures. We believe India knows very well that China will not be at a disadvantage in any China-India military operations along the border area,” it said.
