India and China recently debate about Sikkim and Doklam, as both nations are blaming each other which heaps for claims, China had as of late blamed India for trampling with Panchsheel settlement by Indian troops entering the Chinese region and called for pulling back the troops as quickly as time permits.

It asked Chinese travellers to pay close attention to the local security situation, improve self-protection awareness, strengthen security, reduce unnecessary travel, pay attention to personal and property safety as well as to provide advance information to family and friends. "In accordance with the security condition of the relevant country, we will decide whether or not to issue a travel alert", he had said, giving enough indications that Beijing was weighing the possibility of issuing an advisory.

Meanwhile, China's foreign ministry had said that the atmosphere was not right for a meeting between the two countries.

The advisory, which is not a travel advisory but aimed at Chinese nationals in India, is valid until August 7, and it was posted in Chinese and dated July 7 on the Chinese Embassy's website.

Recently, the state-run Chinese media also said that India must be taught a "bitter lesson" and warned New Delhi that a military conflict with China would inflict "greater losses than in 1962".

China and India have been engaged in the standoff in the Doklam area near the Bhutan tri-junction for nearly a month after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road.

It termed as "unconvincing" India's stand that Chinese construction activity in the area would represent a "significant change of status quo with serious security implications for India".

Of the 3,488-km-long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in Sikkim.

The article also said that the public in China is infuriated by "India's provocation" in Donglang and the Chinese People's Liberation Army is powerful enough to throw Indian troops out of its claimed territory.
