New Delhi :  

India’s logic on road construction by China in Doklam on the border posed a threat to New Delhi was ‘ridiculous and vicious’, said Chinese Foreign Ministry on Tuesday.

The ministry also said that there will be ‘utter chaos’ if Chinese troops entered India on pretext that Indian border infrastructure posed a threat to Beijing.

IANS quoting Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying wrote, “The Indian side illegally crossed the boundary on the excuse of ... Chinese road building. The reason is ridiculous, vicious and facts are clear."

The IANS further writes,  "You may think about it. If we tolerate India's ridiculous logic, then anyone who dislikes the activity at his neighbour's home can break into its neighbour's house. Does that mean when China thinks that large-scale construction of infrastructure at the border area of India is posing a threat, it can enter Indian territory? Wouldn't that be utter chaos?"
