China on August 2 released a position document on the Indian border troops' illegal trespass into Chinese territory.

The document titled "The Facts and China's Position Concerning the Indian Border Troops' Crossing of the China-India Boundary in the Sikkim Sector into the Chinese Territory," has four parts and three appendices.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a press statement that China released the document to "lay out the facts and truth of the illegal trespass of the Indian border troops to the international community and give a full account of the position of the Chinese Government."

"What India has done not only severely violates China's territorial sovereignty but also poses grave challenges to regional peace and stability and the normal international order, which will not be tolerated by any sovereign state," Geng said.

According to the document, over 270 Indian border troops crossed the boundary in the Sikkim section of the China-India border, entering Chinese territory and obstructing the road building of the Chinese side in the Dong Lang area (Doklam) on June 18.

As of end of July, there were still over 40 Indian border troops and one bulldozer illegally staying in the Chinese territory.
