New Delhi: The border row created by incursion of Chinese troops 19 kms inside the Indian Territory does not seem to die down soon. In an article published on Thursday in a state-run Chinese newspaper Global Times, China has slammed the Indian government, Opposition and media.

The Chinese communist party owned Global Times editorial also advised Indian media to avoid sensitization of news related to incursion in Ladakh.

“India's policy towards China ‘can be fickle’, but the China would not ignore any ‘provocations’. The Indian government ought to clarify the so-called 'intrusion' in a timely way and assume the responsibility of maintaining a good atmosphere. Otherwise, the unhealthy tendency of hyping up China will keep happening,” said the daily.

According to the daily, the reality is that that communication over border issues between China and India has usually been smooth Officials from both sides speak highly about the peaceful state of border areas.

Referring to a report in the Indian media about Chinese bloggers' hostile comments calling for teaching a lesson to India, it said such "nonsense will influence mainstream society". The editorial advised Indian media to be patient and let the issue resolved through diplomatic channels. “Troops from both sides patrol around their claimed border lines, but both try to avoid causing any real frictions,” it said.
