Pakistan accuses India of 542 ceasefire violations this year that 'killed' 18

The writers claimed that India is now developing a missile which can carry nuclear heads to any remote area in China from its bases in South India.

On the Sikkim sector stand-off, the Foreign Secretary said that "Chinese military is in violation and that Doklam is Bhutanese territory and India is protecting Bhutan's interest".

On the standoff between the Armies of India and China in the Dokalam area, he said that diplomatic channels would continue to be used for a resolution.

He also strongly rejected allegations by Pakistan that India was using chemical weapons in Kashmir, saying India is against the use of chemical weapon anywhere by anyone in any situation.

China and India have been engaged in the standoff in the area for the past three weeks after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road.

The EIA report showed inventories fell by 1.6 million barrels, compared with analyst' expectations for a 1. 1 million barrel gain. However, recently both countries have ramped up production, feared to offset the cuts implemented by the rest of the group.

Kristensen and Norris also stated in the article that India's Agni-2 ballistic missile - the two-stage, solid-fuel, rail-mobile projectiles with a range of 2,000km - is probably targeted on western, central, and southern China. "Those channels will continue to be used", External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said when asked about the almost month-long stand off in Doklam. Although the Agni-4 will be capable of striking targets in almost all of China from northeastern India (including Beijing and Shanghai), India is also developing the longer-range Agni-5, a three-stage, solid-fuel, rail-mobile, near-intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a warhead more than 5,000 kilometres (3,100-plus miles), it said.

It said by "turning a deaf ear" to China's demand for troop withdrawal, India "will worsen the month-long stand-off and put itself further into embarrassment".

Sharma said that the Congress made its view clear that national security was the priority and advised the government to rise above politics and tackle the situation diplomatically. India and China have said they do not intend to back down in this fight, leaving the burden of diplomacy on Bhutan whose foreign policy and defence are nominally handled by New Delhi.

"Within the country, the Modi government has increased the profile of the Dalai Lama and the so-called Tibetan provisional government (which) are serious irritants for China". He said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and British Prime Minister Theresa May had discussed the matter on the sidelines of the recently concluded G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
