- China says India's logic on China road in Doklam "ridiculous and vicious"
- Indian and Chinese troops in stand-off at Doklam since June
- Rajnath Singh had said solution to stand-off would be found soon
The Chinese Foreign Ministry said India's logic that Chinese road building in Doklam on the border posed a threat to New Delhi was "ridiculous and vicious".
It said China would in no way allow any country or individual to infringe upon its territorial sovereignty.
"The Indian side illegally crossed the boundary on the excuse of ... Chinese road building. The reason is ridiculous, vicious and facts are clear," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
"You may think about it. If we tolerate India's ridiculous logic, then anyone who dislikes the activity at his neighbour's home can break into its neighbour's house.
"Does that mean when China thinks that large-scale construction of infrastructure at the border area of India is posing a threat, it can enter Indian territory? Wouldn't that be utter chaos?"
Indian and Chinese troops have been locked since June in a stand-off at Doklam in the Sikkim section of the Bhutan-China border.
It all began when Indian troops stopped Chinese troops from building a road in Doklam, citing the disputed status of the territory.
Doklam is claimed by Bhutan, which has protested against Chinese road building.
China says the construction of the road is just since Doklam has been Chinese territory since ancient times.
New Delhi backs Bhutan's claims and sees a Chinese road in Doklam as a threat because the region is very close to the Siliguri Corridor, which connects India's northeast with the rest of the country.
