Expansionist China will never improve and its usual habit of bullying its neighbors will never go.

The previous records and behavior of China with India have been of total betrayal and deceits. Whether it’s the Dragon’s misadventures on India’s border territories or its illegal and arbitrary intervention in the South China Sea, it has not even spared the United States of America and is even forcibly trespassing in the sea waters of Vietnam, Seychelles and several other countries of the subcontinent with an eye to expand its trade manifold.

The US has strongly reacted to the China’s misadventures in the South China sea and has warned it of dire consequences in case the later does not mend its ways. Now take the recent instance of the resolution of the seventy days old standoff between India and China which has been welcomed by India in all earnestness but the Chinese officials and politicians at the helm are still not controlling their tone and tenor and are behaving in an irresponsible fashion. This is really absurd and against the international diplomatic standards.

As per the news dispatches from the Chinese capital Beijing the Chinese foreign minister instead of welcoming the gesture of the amicable settlement of the Doklam issue is hell bent upon issuing statement of warning to India saying that India should learn lessons from the recent standoff of Doklam and should in future never ever try to intervene or intrude into the land of any country claiming Doklam to be in the legal occupation of China whereas the fact remains that it is the Bhutanese territory and Thimpu has already signed a treaty with it {China} for maintaining a status quo and non interference or carrying out any activity in the Doklam plateau. But expansionist  China would never relent. It still patrols this area and claims it to be in China’s vicinity. The Chinese foreign minister issued this statement while addressing the media giving briefings on the upcoming summit of BRICS NATIONS being held in China.

This three-day summit will be chaired by the Chinese president Xi Jingping and addressed by all the heads of the BRICS nations. Sounds shocking and surprising that instead of expressing satisfaction and happiness over the amicable settlement of the 70-day old Doklam standoff between India and China the China foreign minister prefers to issue warning or lessons to prevent such misadventures whereas it was the dragon that committed the blunder of trespassing the Bhutanese territory and building road in the Doklam plateau, not India. Say the news analysts: the stand of China on Doklam against India is vitriolic and highly scathing.
