Tensions have continued to rise between India and China following military clashes in their Himalayan border region. On Monday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry accused India of taking “unilateral” steps at the border, which threaten a broader military confrontation.

Beijing made a thinly veiled threat asserting U.S. ally India must cooperate to ensure peace and stability at the border. In recent days, Indian troops claimed to have repelled a Chinese invasion of its territory in the contested region of Sikkim. Meanwhile, Beijing has denied such claims.

“We urge India to work with China in the same direction, not to take any unilateral action that may further complicate or exacerbate the border tension,” stated Chinese foreign affairs spokesperson Zhao Lijian. “Properly manage and handle differences, and maintain peace and stability in the border area with concrete actions.”

Indian officials said China is illegally fortifying its positions in the border area with some of its military installations threatening the positions of the Indian military.
