No ceremonial meeting between Indian and Chinese troops on the I-Day

Yang flew down to Nepal from Pakistan where he was the chief guest at the official celebrations of the 70th Independence Day.

The Indian military declined to comment on the incident.

The review comes at a time when the India-China standoff over Doklam has been intensifying, and may signal the onset of a strategic trade war as tension on the border worsens and concerns about trade imbalances and security increase.

"India's hard-line leadership is attempting to take advantage of structural conflicts between Beijing and Washington". The Indian soldiers had formed human chain to block Chinese infiltration.

Danilo Gallinari Injures Hand, to be Ready for Camp
Gallinari, 28, got into a scuffle with Netherlands' Jito Kok during the game, causing an injury to his right thumb. The 6-foot-10 forward came to L.A. after inking a sign-and-trade deal worth $63 million over three years.

An Indian intelligence officer said the confrontation occurred after Indian soldiers intercepted a Chinese patrol that veered into Indian-held territory after apparently it lost its way due to bad weather.

A Chinese state-run daily, Global Times, in an editorial said, "India behaving like a bully, which has taken the sovereign state of Sikkim into its territory and with so-called protection of Bhutan, limiting its sovereignty". "India must immediately and unconditionally withdraw all its trespassing troops and equipment back to the Indian side of the border", the office said in a statement.

Nepal's Deputy Prime Minister and in-charge of foreign affairs K B Mahara had last week said that Nepal was in favour of the hostilities being resolved through dialogue and that it will remain neutral to the standoff.

The stand-off began in June when Chinese soldiers tried to unilaterally change the status quo in the strategically important Doklam region of Bhutan by building a road in the area.
