BEIJING: China has demanded India to withdraw its troops from its territory in the Sikkim section.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang in a news briefing in Beijing on Tuesday said that India should not take its military’s trespass into Chinese territory as a policy tool to achieve certain political purposes.

The spokesperson urged India to correctly understand the situation and take measures to withdraw troops to avoid an escalation of tension.
