Beijing, July 24:  China on Monday urged India to immediately withdraw its army, to safeguard the border peace and tranquility.

China’s Defence Ministry Spokesperson said withdrawal of troops is our pre-condition to resolving the ongoing unrest at tri-junction, which holds strategic importance to all the three nations.

As per China, Indian troops illegally crossed the China-India boundary into Chinese territory last month to obstruct road construction in Sikkim’s Doklam region.

“We strongly urge India to take solid measures to correct its mistakes and desist from provocation,” Wu said, calling for a joint effort to maintain peace and tranquility at border.

He also warned India to abandon any impractical illusions about the Chinese military’s ability to defend its territory.

The history of the Chinese Army in the past 90 years has demonstrated its increasing capacities and unshakable determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, he further added.

“It’s easier to shake a mountain than the PLA,” Wu said.

Talking about China’s strength Wu said,  It’s easier to shake a mountain than the People’s Liberation Army.

Both Indian and Chinese armies are witnessing face-off at Doklam.

Recently, India is ready to resolve the issue diplomatically.
