China on Tuesday lodged diplomatic diplomatic protests with India, both in New Delhi and Beijing, alleging that the Indian troops trespassed into Chinese territory in the Sikkim sector. It has accused the Indian troops of “crossing the boundary” in the Sikkim section and demanded their immediate withdrawal, while asserting that it has shut down the Nathu La pass entry for Indian pilgrims travelling to Kailash Mansarovar because of the border standoff. “We have lodged solemn representations in Beijing and New Delhi to elaborate on our solemn position”, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang told a media briefing in Beijing. “Our position to uphold our territorial sovereignty is unwavering. We hope the Indian side can work with China in the same direction and immediately withdraw the personnel who have overstepped and trespassed into Chinese border”, he said. China on Tuesday night, said that it had put off the visit of Indian pilgrims who enter Tibet via the Nathu La pass “for safety reasons” in view of the border issue. “China urges India to immediately withdraw its border guards that have crossed the boundary and have a thorough investigation of this matter”, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.
