India went against consensus to maintain peace says China
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh assured that the confrontation with China amidst the Doklam standoff would end soon. However the Chinese continued to sing an aggressive tune and said it was India which is to be blamed for the tension.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, Chinese border forces were carrying out "normal" patrols on the Chinese side of the Pangong Lake located in Ladakh in the western Himalayas.
"During this time they were obstructed by Indian border forces and the Indian side took fierce actions, colliding with the Chinese personnel and having contact with their bodies, injuring the Chinese border personnel," she told a daily news briefing. What India did went against the two countries' consensus to keep the peace on the border and it endangered the situation there, she added, stating, "China is extremely dissatisfied with this".
Rajnath Singh said that a solution would come out soon. China will take a positive step from its side, the home minister said while addressing Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) on Monday. "We want to maintain good relations with our neighbours. We don't want conflict, we want peace," he also said.
