Three Service Chiefs Review Security Situation Amid Military Standoff With China

Doklam standoff Chinese state media releases racist propaganda video to mock India Three Service Chiefs Review Security Situation Amid Military Standoff With China

The three elements, taken together, is being viewed as part of India's pushback on China's high-decibel rhetoric over the standoff, including a video recently released by its official news agency Xinhua that has been accused of using racist undertones to ridicule Indians.

A major state-run Chinese media outlet uploaded a video containing derogatory depictions of Indians in what could be the latest flashpoint amid escalating tensions between Beijing and New Delhi .

China has repeatedly asked India to withdraw from the area or else face the prospect of an escalation.

This was followed by a formal compliant, or demarche, issued by the Bhutanese government that accused China of constructing a road "inside Bhutanese territory" in "direct violation" of its territorial treaty obligations.

A review of the anti-dumping duty has concluded that "there is continued dumping of the product concerned from China, both in absolute terms and in relation to production and consumption in India causing injury to the domestic industry", the department said. "It is a common place for the global community to contribute to the peace and stability in the region", he added.

However, Zakharova responding to such reports said, Russian Federation always provides all interested parties with comprehensive information "in order to stop any speculation on such issues as soon as possible".

It accuses Indian forces of trespassing and breaking worldwide law.

"Didn't your mama tell you [sic] never break the law?" she asks.

Another segment shows the fake Indian man holding a pair of scissors to the throat of another actor meant to be Bhutan, reports said.

The Hindustan Times noted that the man's appearance "particularly targets the Sikh minority", who wear turbans and beards, according to the reports.

Indian border troops are still illegally staying in Chinese territory after they illegally crossed the border into Chinese territory on June 18.

The ministry spokesperson revealed that this year, China has not shared hydrological data with India under the expert-level mechanism on trans-border rivers. If a country takes "security concerns" as an excuse to justify its boundary-crossing and entry into other countries, it is putting world and regional peace at stake, the article pointed out. "Xinhua isn't quite sure whether it's producing a spoof. or a propaganda piece".
