…its territory.

"China has accused Indian border guards of crossing into its territory from the state of Sikkim on India's northeastern border with Tibet, the Chinese foreign and defence ministries have said, complicating an already difficult relationship.

Geng Shuang, a spokesman with China's foreign ministry, said Indian guards "obstructed normal activities" by Chinese forces on the border and called on India to withdraw immediately, according to a ministry statement late on Monday.

He urged India to respect China's territorial integrity and the border treaties signed by the two countries, and said China had already suspended official pilgrimages at the Nathu La Pass, which lies on the frontier between Sikkim state and Tibet.

A spokesman for the Indian Army declined to comment but said the army would issue a statement on Tuesday. India's defence ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment…"

Interesting that Tibet is not shown as "Disputed territories."

Hmm. Did the Indians build military bases on artificial islands in international waters too? Did they invade and annex Tibet too?

Looks like another example of China's selective indignation. Do as I say and not as I do.

Tibet isn't disputed – not in this context. India recognized China's claim in the 1950s.

They probably got soy burgers. They don't know what beef tastes like, so you can sell them anything and tell them it's hamburger.. :)
