    Xi Jinping tells Tibetan herdsmen to settle down near India border
    Sunday, October 29, 2017

    Chinese President Xi Jinping has told herdsmen in Tibet to "set down roots" near the Sino-India border and safeguard Chinese territory.

    In a reply to the herdsmen who wrote to Xi introducing their township in Lhunze county in Tibet, Xi also told them to develop settlements and stay put in the area bordering India.

    Situated in southwest China's Tibet, Lhunzhe is close to India's Arunachal Pradesh, which Beijing claims as its own and calls South Tibet.

    He encouraged a herding family to set down roots in the border area, safeguard the Chinese territory and develop their hometown, according to a short dispatch from Xinhua news agency.

    In August, Indian and Chinese armies ended a over-two-month military stand-off - worst in decades - in the Sikkim sector which abuts Tibet.

    During the face-off, China sent battle tanks and conducted military drills in the Tibetan plateau.

    India and China have a dragging boundary dispute over the 3,488 km de facto boundary. The two fought a brief but bloody war in 1962.

    After being re-elected the General Secretary of the Communist Party last week, Xi asked the Chinese Army to be combat-ready.

    In his inaugural speech at the meet, Xi said China was ready to settle its border dispute with neighbours but it cannot be expected to swallow everything which undermines its and integrity and sovereignty.

    This is why India has to settle people along the boundary asap. Otherwise, the occupation of the area by Chinese and Tibetans will automatically create new claims.

    India should develop small townships along the border roads and gift them to the retiring Army personnel. Once these get consumed, build new township for new enrollments.
