Beijing: Amid the stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops at Doklam, China on Tuesday upped the ante, wondering what New Delhi would do if it "enters" Kashmir.
Meanwhile, China also rejected India's suggestion for a simultaneous withdrawal of troops to end the stand-off at Doklam.
Doklam is a disputed region between China and Bhutan. The dispute arose after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from building a road in the region in mid-June.
India wants to resolve the dispute over the stand-off between their armies in the Sikkim sector diplomatically, but China says it won't talk unless India withdraws troops from Doklam.
"Even if there is only one Indian soldier, even for a day it is still a violation of our sovereignty and territorial integrity," Wang Wenli, Deputy Director General of the Boundary and Ocean Affairs of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said.
Wang was briefing an Indian media delegation, whose visit was sponsored by the state-run All China Journalists Association (ACJA), on China's stand on the Doklam stand-off.
"It is impossible to have a dialogue with India at this time. Our people will think our government is incompetent."
"Until the Indian side withdraws from the Chinese territory, there will be no substantive talks between us," she said while reiterating Beijing's stand that the only way to end the present crisis on the border was the withdrawal of Indian troops from Doklam.
Needling India, she raised the Kashmir issue and also referred to the Kalapani dispute between India and Nepal.
