“Amid an ongoing standoff, China has warned India to withdraw its troops before any dialogue can be initiated. According to reports, the political councilor of the Chinese embassy in India, Li Ya, has suggested India withdraw its troops back to its side of the boundary before any sort of peace talks between the two nations can start. … While India claims the Sikkim border, China is insisting that the area falls on its side as per the 1890 treaty signed between Britain and China. As a consequence of this dispute, China has suspended the annual Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, a pilgrimage tour considered holy for Indians and Tibetans of the region.” (07/06/17)
