India has always maintained restraint despite provocation from China on the borders. What is sad is China’s refusal to revert to the status quo and its condition that India must withdraw troops for resumption of talks. As India is committed to the security treaty with Bhutan to protect its borders, it cannot turn a blind eye to Chinese operations at the tri-junction. Though India knows well that a stand-off with China will only aggravate the situation and is not in its interest in the long run, China should not take India for granted. China should come to the table to sort out the border question amicably before this escalates.
