China releases another video on Doklam: The racism is missing this time
After releasing a racist video last week, China has released a toned down clip. Amidst the Doklam standoff, this new video released by China's official news agency Xinhua, showers a few praises on India.
It calls India as one of the world's oldest civilisations and one with a great culture. This video is part of a series caled "Talk India." The video goes on to state that India had violated the border at Doklam and not the People's Liberation Army.
"On June 18, Indian troops carrying weapons and driving two bulldozers crossed the Sikkim sector and entered Chinese territory. It obstructed Chinese road works in the region causing a standoff between the two sides," says the Xinhua video.
The Xinhua video then says "the border issue shows a lack of strategic trust" by India. This, it says could lead to "strategic myopia" that "could even hurt India's own interests". After that veiled threat comes the sop and a pat on its own back.
"India and China are two of the world's oldest civilisations with time honoured histories and brilliant cultures. They are not born rivals. Contact between the two countries stretch back to ancient times. Which is why India should immediately and unconditionally withdraw all troops from Chinese territory," the anchor states.
