India pulled back all its trespassing border personnel and equipment from Dong Lang (Doklam) region on Monday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. local time, ending a two-month military standoff triggered by India's illegal incursion. The Chinese personnel onsite have verified this situation.

About two months ago, the Indian military trespass grossly encroached on China's territorial sovereignty, and trampled on the fundamental principles of international law and basic norms governing international relations.

Now the withdrawal of Indian troops has laid a foundation for the further development of the China-India relation. It is good to see that the two countries have solved the conflict peacefully.

“We believe that it serves the interests of China and India to resolve this incident peacefully via diplomatic means,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying on a daily press briefing on Monday. “It also demonstrates China's sincerity and attitude in preserving regional peace and stability as a responsible major country,” Hua said. The Age of Hegemony has become history. All countries need to see that no matter who they are dealing with, the fundamental basis is mutual respect, mutual benefit, and win-win cooperation.

“We hope that India could earnestly abide by the border-related historical treaty and basic norms of international law and work with China to ensure peace and stability in the border area on the basis of mutual respect for each other's territorial sovereignty, and to promote the healthy development of bilateral relations,” Hua told the press briefing.
